Logo Reveal After Effects Template: Ketchup – Fluid Splat and Dripping Text

Ketchup, a Fluid Splat and Dripping Text Logo Reveal After Effects template!

After completing the Bloody Gore Ball logo reveal After Effects template one thing became very clear; it was too long and for those who only wanted the ending with the cool drippy text it was just a waste of money to buy the whole cow just for a pint of milk. Asides from that, there was also the problem with the customization, the big red gory ball of doom was simply too difficult and pointless to customize, after all, blood is SUPPOSED to be red so what I did was to create an alternate logo reveal After Effects template; Ketchup.
In a few words, Ketchup is a customizable, simple, messy splat of fluid from which procedural, dripping text emerges, but it’s more than that, you see. In this particular template you have the option to edit the color of the fluid, so it doesn’t necessarily have to be ketchup or blood it can very well be mustard. Or tar. Or guacamole! Any goopy fluid, in principle. Anything you think you can spill anywhere! Because making a mess is fun! (Yay?) And the floor doesn’t even have to be the tiled kitchen floor I included, because in this logo reveal After Effects template I also included a grungy concrete floor but if you’ve got any texture of your own you can put that in there, too!

Hit the break to watch this awesome template in action! No viewer discretion is required like with the other template. ‘Cause ketchup isn’t gory. Unless by “ketchup” you mean a clever euphemism for blood.

Optical Scanner - Logo Reveal After Effects Template

For those Folks following my logo reveal After Effects template, this time I decided to do something radically different and it’s actually hidden in plain sight. This may seem to you like any other AE template but in fact it’s really not, you see, this whole template, except for the pre-rendered particles and  lens flare, is 100% rendered inside After Effects! Which may not sound like a big deal to you but in reality, this gives you the flexibility to extend it for as long as you want or change most animations to suit your needs, provided that you have the music to go with the new length, as every single element in this logo reveal After Effects template (except for the lens flare) reacts to After Effects’ native depth of field and lighting system.

The caveat, of course is that the specular effects on the textures are accomplished through the CC Glass plugin which, yes, is native to After Effects, but unfortunately it’s pre-composed in every “Texture” and has to be dealt with manually for each element if you want to change the animation.

One of the biggest challenges with this template was that lens on the optical scanner, which doesn’t look out of the ordinary, but it will actually render simulated reflections! And the way this is accomplished in this logo reveal After Effects template is by duplicating the assets in a pre-composition and positioning them in such a way that it looks like they are reflected.
