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.

Logo Reveal After Effects Template: An MiB Christmas! Two Logo Stingers!

Snow Globe logo reveal After Effects template

It’s CHRISTMAS TIME FOLKS!! And you know what that means! Santas, crowded malls and what not yay!!! Well, here at Nevermore Motion Graphics, I have the Christmas spirit too and to celebrate I this logo reveal After Effects template. Thing is, when I finished it, I had a deep creative itch to scratch, so I made a second one!

Snow Globe is a Christmas-themed logo stinger AE template, the snowman is pre-rendered, as is the glass ball that contains it, BUT you can position it wherever you like. The letters are tubular and three-dimensional, so you can animate them (instructions in Readme file) and spin them – to a certain point – you really don’t need ANY plugins for that, the 3D text is completely procedural. The lights change and update with only two controls. In this case I’m using only green and red, but you can use whatever colors you want! Oh, did I mention you can change the color of the scarf on the snowman? Yeah, you totally can!

Galaxy Marble logo reveal After Effects template

Galaxy Marble is Men in Black-inspired logo reveal After Effects template. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, watch MiB and see the ending of the first movie, there’s a Galaxy inside a Marble kinda thing going on. But, plot twist! NO, this AE template was not based on MIB’s ending. It was in fact based on Video Copilot’s “Galactic Orb” tutorial. This was sort of a tribute to that tutorial. ‘Cause you see, when I found that tutorial, I already knew how to do that, but I still wanted to do it, because Andrew made it look so beautiful, so I decided to make an AE template about it, except using my own technique, to give it MY OWN spin. For the interior of the glass marble I used an older logo reveal After Effects template of mine as a base, (except rendered from a slightly different angle). In the end, the result was quite similar to the ending of the first Men In Black film, which I’m sure was Andrew Kramer’s original intent when doing his version. So I guess it all comes full circle?

Logo Reveal After Effects Template: Optical Scanner – Logo Stinger

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.
