Photo Gallery on a Sunny Afternoon

Insert your favorite images in stock footage of picture frames hanging from a tree, softly swaying around as the leaves interact with the ambient flow of the wind. Bonus – you won’t look like a crazy person attempting to hang perfectly good picture frames in your backyard. The template can work with up to 42 images too, so there’s ample room for your beloved memories to hang around.

Photo Motion Pro – Professional 3D Photo Animator

One of the most amazing templates on VH, the Photo Motion Pro allows you to animate still photos into incredibly dynamic video content. It’s quite astonishing, and you won’t believe what this template is capable of, until you’ve checked out some of the videos produced with it.

Black Classic 3D Logo

An easy-to-customize logo effect that turns any logo into a three dimensional graphic for presentation purposes. Commonly used for corporate videos, this template could easily also come in handy for personal video projects, intro credits, and so much more.

Logo Intro Elegance Flare

This template allows you to create a dramatic intro sequence using only your logo. The fact that it’s so simple and to-the-point, paired with the reasonable price, makes this one a perfect addition to your AE toolbox.

140 Flash FX Elements

This template has been chosen as a featured file on VideoHive, and there’s good reason for that. It comes packed with 140+ animated elements allowing you to create stunning transitions no matter the topic. You’re really only limited by your own imagination, as otherwise, this template is fitting for 3D, video effects, titles, pictures, logos, cartoons, games, and more. Think smoke explosions, electricity, flames, movement lines, and much, much more.

Pixity Land | Character Explainer Toolkit

The map generator wizard is browser-based, and the main template combines all map images and a high-tech library. If traveling isn’t your thing, you can still use this template to produce movie-grade location presentations including markers and annotations!

500 Animated Icons

With Video becoming such a strong player, at the forefront of all possible media, it’s likely you’re bound to find yourself looking for animated icons for your next project. You get a whopping 500 fully customizable icons to use to your heart’s desire.
