360 After Effects Template: Fire & Brimstone

360 After Effects Template: Fire & Brimstone

We start the year with a bang! And what a bang, people! What a bang! This is a fully loopable 360 After Effects template. Did I mention it is also fully editable and doesn’t require ANY plugins? I am not kidding! You can fully edit the 3D objects in the 360 panorama without the need for ANY external plugin at all! Not gonna lie, it took me awhile to crack this sucker, but when I did, a world of possibilities opened to me.
All is achieved through the clever use of After Effects native plugins, particularly distortion ones and, if you are not using any 3D plugins, you can do so from the same comp.

Now, understandably editing this 360 After Effects template is not as simple as previous ones, mostly due to the fact that, you guessed it, you have three hundred and sixty degrees of freedom here, rather than the traditional templates you are accustomed to. Lucky for you, I included a very thorough render and several helper objects such as nulls and z-depth pass, which you can use to occlude things. What’s more, your 360 After Effects template is separated in layers, which you can turn on and off or colorize so the degrees of freedom this template offers you are far greater than you think.

Now, let’s briefly talk about music. This AE template also includes loopable audio and music tracks, which means that you can extend it indefinitely without a noticeable cut.

After Effects Template: Doomsday Device – Futuristic Action Intro

After Effects Template: Doomsday Device - Futuristic Action Intro

This is a project I’ve been working on for literally months now and I finally got to finish and upload this After Effects template. There’s so much I wanted to add and so little I was able to get away with, since I needed to make the file size manageable and the editability simple enough to follow and play around with. One of my biggest regrets with this project was the fact that I wasn’t able to add more realistic effects such as sparks, explosions and smoke and I had to go with what Particular had to offer. And Don’t get me wrong, Particular is a such great plugin and the results are fantastic, but if you want realistic sparks, there’s nothing like the real thing and for that I did not have neither the rights nor permission to distribute Video Copilot’s assets so I had to generate my own. As a short digression, YES I do plan to make my own set of stock footage special effects elements but that’s still way in the future.
Now, where were we? Ahh yes, the After Effects template. Well, the visuals were heavily inspired by films and games like The Matrix, Wolfenstein and Fallout, with an interesting combination between Dieselpunk and Cyberpunk with a slightly apocalyptic Sci-Fi flare. The intention was to make it look like part of an Action/Science Fiction adventure film, showcasing the awesome MacGuffin at the end.

The editability on this one isn’t bad at all either! You can change the color of the fill light, the content on the screens, the color of the screens, the logo and the fact that a camera was included allows you to overlap your own stock special effects assets, text or even 3D or other additional elements, making this After Effects template flexible enough to delve in any other genre by changing the color scheme or lighting sceme.

The soundtrack is very much in the vein of Hans Zimmer and was specifically made for this project, I wanted something adventurous and exciting so I spent literally HOURS perfecting it it.

After Effects Template: INKfoGraphic – Infographic Ink Blots Style Intro

After Effects Template: INKfoGraphic - Ink Blots Intro

INKfographic is my very first infographic-style intro After Effects template, made as a followup to another very popular best-seller I have called Dark Ink. The effects are slightly less distracting and more subtle than in Dark Ink and that’s on purpose, so people can pay the deserved attention to the information shared.

This After Effects template is quite versatile and can be used for almost anything, because it gives you the flexibility to move all the assets around and position them just the way you need them, so you can have an Infographic, or a cool cinematic intro for your film, podcast or even a trailer. Most of the assets are rendered withing After Effects, so you can easily change many of the parameters to suit your cinematic needs. The only element that is pre-rendered is the particle field, which is barely noticeable, so if you have the need to change the camera movement or depth of field settings, you can do so.
