Some of the best selling After Effects Templates of all time:

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 perfect template, if you’re looking to illustrate a story. It has a vast range of customizable characters, icons, speech bubbles, and more. With almost 5,000 sales and a nearly perfect rating, there’s no doubt that your chances of succeeding in presenting your product, explaining a concept, or simply telling a great story, are quite high with this one.

Ultimate Earth Zoom Toolkit

For those of you that are into traveling, but haven’t quite managed to set aside a budget for 2017, this template allows you to zoom in on any place in the world. 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.

2017 was the year people got serious about video. Our After Effects templates library certainly reflects this. Over the course of the last twelve months, we’ve seen a huge emphasis on onscreen text, catering to the growing audience who watch videos without sound. We’ve had templates that push the boundaries of excess, whose main objective is to be eye-poppingly bright to command attention. And then we had packs that were simply breathtaking in their creativity. This list has a bit of it all. Some of them are best sellers, some of them are editorial choices, and all of them were released in 2017.

So, sit back, watch, read and enjoy our list of the 10 After Effects Templates That Blew Us Away in 2017.

Big Pack of Elements by Motion-Land

Big Pack of Elements is the result of a two year collaboration between a couple of already successful Envato authors. Dmitriy part of recarto, and Alex the man behind A_White, joined forces in 2015 to create a versatile pack of useful After Effects elements. The final product is something that impressed our reviews team here at Envato, delighted customers, and stormed our video marketplace, being sold more than two thousand times.

Transitions by RoyalPixels

Transitions is a pack of, you guessed it, transitions that are really slick and creative. There are options for “Camera Transitions” in which the frame pans around the corners of your footage as you transition from one shot to another. There’s are gorgeous “Brush Effects” that are extremely elegant. And, there are a number of “Shape” transitions, which look truly luscious. This pack only came out in June, yet it’s made quite the impression.

Titles and Lower Thirds by flikmotion

Honestly one of the most straightforward and contemporary items of the year. “Boxd” Titles and Lower Thirds is a pack of titles and lower thirds in boxes (get it?). It’s a ready to go pack with boxes around your text resizing automatically, and a number of style variations that are minimal enough to fit almost any brand, but bold enough to catch the eye. So many videos these days are watched without sound and a pack like this ensures yours will still be engaging, even on mute.

Rhythmic Opener by levmotion

Rhythmic Opener is part of the “fast typography” trend we saw absolutely explode this year. As mentioned, people are watching more videos than ever without sound. So, templates like this one are using typography in interesting, eye catching ways to capture the eye of those promiscuous scrollers perusing a web page or social media newsfeed. Make the most of Facebook and Twitter auto playing videos by grabbing their eyes and keeping them.

Particle Builder | Sand Pack: Dust Sand Storm Disintegration Effect Vfx Generator by Pixflow

Photoshop Actions continue to be a best selling category on our graphic design marketplaces, and 2017 brought us a bunch of items that allow you to bring them to life in a video. The Particle Builder series of items by Pixflow works much the same as Photoshop actions, where you take your picture, graphic or a piece of text, mask the section you want to animate, and automate it using one of six options. Sand Pack was only released in December, and is already pretty popular.

This is Slideshow by D-Music

This is Slideshow is a fresh template pack that will turn a set of images and text into a truly compelling video. The animations are smooth and quick, and they’re also very detailed. Take a look at how the photos in the background animate subtly with a tile effect or something of the like. And the colors just pop.

Titles by motioncan

Motioncan’s Titles is ultra modern. It’s filled with simple, bold typography that animates in a way that’s almost jolty. It offers a number of great options to show off your text, logo, captions and lower thirds. And it’s one of the newer items on the market, having come out in December, which means it’ll be something fresh for 2018.

Promo Intro by 7Roads

Promo Intro by 7Roads is quick! It packs a lot into 7 seconds, including photos that animate under semi-transparent gradients, text and a final logo. It’s a great bumper that commands attention.

Cinematic Parallax Slideshow by cowardrobertford

This one by cowardrobertford is breathtaking. A great option for an opener of a video or tv show, it uses a parallax effects to add depth to still photography. That, mixed with the way the text animates, makes it truly unique.

Typography by motioncan

Motioncan’s second entry on this list is eye-poppingly beautiful. Typography features a whole grab basket of stunning templates in which to insert your text and have it be the star of your video. With vivid pinks, royal blues, and a great variety of modern design options, this pack should have at least one thing you can use, if not more.

Conclusion

As we look forward to 2018, these items are setting the tone as to what we can expect. Eye-catching animation, eye-popping color, and lots more text. So, buckle up, because this is only the beginning.

Motion Graphics for Complete Beginners https://envato.com/blog/motion-graphics-complete-beginners/ Mon, 18 Dec 2017 21:49:26 +0000 https://envato.com/?p=62163 The art of bringing graphics to life through animation.

The post Motion Graphics for Complete Beginners appeared first on Envato.

You might have heard the terms ‘motion graphics’ and ‘motion graphic design’ but, if you’re like me, you might have had a hard time working out exactly what they mean.

Put simply: motion graphics refers to animated graphic design.

‘MoGraphs’ (as the industry sometimes refers to them) is really the art of bringing graphics to life through animation. Simple graphic forms can be animated, while flat images, such as photographs, can be edited to suggest the illusion of movement.

How do ‘MoGraphs’ differ from Animation?

MoGraphs is to Animation what Graphic Design is to Art; one piece of the larger discipline. Graphic design often has a commercial aspect to it, as do motion graphics, while art and animation tend to focus more on entertainment. That’s not to say that graphic design can’t also be entertaining – Robert M. Ball’s Beautiful Death series, for example – but entertainment is not the primary purpose.

Motion Graphics Designer Jared Flynn put it succinctly, suggesting that an animator utilizes character and narrative to communicate ideas, while a motion designer reduces that communication to more the basic elements of color, space, and typography.

In conjunction with students at the University for the Arts in Bremen, Envato marketplace author placdarms contributed to this fantastic educational video about the basics of motion graphic design. If you’ve got 23 minutes to spare, it’s packed with so much great information that I think everyone could take a little something away from it.

How can they be used?

First, a little history. The inception of motion graphics goes back decades. Early cinema relied on motion graphics techniques for opening titles. Their creative exploration came in the 1940s and 1950s, when artists such as Oskar Fischinger, Saul and Elaine Bass, and Pablo Ferro began pushing motion graphics techniques to their limits.

The opening credits of Hitchcock’s Psycho and North By Northwest were both designed by Bass. This iconic style remains a reference point for designers even today, representing the unique ways typography and form can be presented.

These techiques were also used heavily in the abstract designs for, well, pretty much every James Bond film title ever.

Daniel Craig will feature in the 2019 Bond film I’ve tentatively titled MoGraphs are Forever.

So popular were motion graphics techniques in the 1960s and 1970s that their style is often utilized as a callback to the era. The Archer title credits are a great modern example of this:

Motion graphics have also long been used for logo reveals, especially in television networks or movie production companies. (For more info on the use of motion graphics in logo reveals, see our article on the Top Logo Reveal Video Templates for After Effects.)

The pervasiveness of technology means that animations can be applied to almost anything to give them a boost in our busy lives. Motion graphics can be used to great effect in animated digital billboards. Websites can utilize them – sparingly though, please – to highlight or draw attention to particular areas.

Remember, you’re aiming for this:

Welcome to the Universe won the 2017 People’s Voice Webby Award for best use of animation or motion graphics. (Webby Awards)

Not this:

If you’re looking for more on what not to do, Dom has you covered with 13 Terrible Web Trends and how to Recreate them.

Many websites are using a parallax effect for backgrounds. This animation technique involves moving foreground images and background images at different speeds, creating the illusion of depth. Used effectively and this gives a hint of dynamic movement without overwhelming the content. We have talked about this in depth before, so if you’re interested in hearing more about how parallax can be used in websites, have a read though this article on Things to Consider When Using Parallax Scrolling in Web Design.

The Firewatch website shows how parallax can be used simply without overwhelming viewers. (Firewatch)

Motion graphics can also be used very creatively print. Though falling out of favour a little in recent times, lenticular printing can still be used effectively. You’ve most likely seen this used in children’s books, where different frames of a scene are cut into thin strips and spliced together under a ridged piece of plastic. The visible frame then changes depending on your angle of view. These styles can still be used on promotional materials, such as cups or postcards, as well as full-size advertisements.

Spanish Child Advocacy agency, ANAR, provided a well known example of lenticular advertising in 2013. Using horizontal lenticular lines rather than vertical, ANAR were able to target their message of support to children under 10.

Motion designs are versatile techniques that can be used across a broad range of projects in different mediums. While the digital uses are obvious and abundant, remember that there are also ways to include motion graphics in printed projects.

Of course, if neither digital nor print motion graphics are suitable for your project, you could always consider magical means. Please note, however, that magical means are only available to select customers at this time. Please contact your local school for wizardry and witchcraft for more information.

2017-transparent

It’s been a big year. 

To recap, we’ve put together this list – curated by the team at Envato – of our top ten trends of the year, and predictions for what will be popular in 2018. Of course, there’s a lot more that happened in 2017 than what’s in this top ten.

A few honorable mentions for trends this year:

Here’s the list of our top ten trends of 2017:

#1: Geometric shapes

"Geometric and polygon art was big in 2017. Backgrounds, textures, and more, all with regular lines and repeating patterns."
Screen Shot 2017-12-01 at 1.31.18 PM
David Appleyard
Editor, Envato Tuts+

From zig-zig geo patterns to retro triangles and designs, we saw geometric patterns everywhere this year. It’s also a simple style to try some DIY design – you can learn about it in 60 seconds, or try your hand at creating your own simple geometric pattern.

Pop 3D Geo Patterns by hughadams
Geometric Patterns by WildOnes
Winter Geometric Seamless Patterns by Wutip
Color Blocking Patterns by Youandigraphics

#2: All tropical everything

"2017 had us dreaming of luxurious holidays, complete with lush palm trees, exotic fruit and beautiful wildlife. It was a real feast for the eyes."

Tropical Night Flyer, GraphicRiver
Tropical Summer Party Flyer, GraphicRiver
Seamless Tropical Pattern, GraphicRiver

Kate’s honorable mention in design trends: fidget spinners, which got so big this year that they made it into the stock graphics & photography scene. 

#3: Fast typography in video

"One of the biggest trends of this year is fast typography. In an era where we’re constantly overwhelmed by the amount of information being thrown at us, the popularity of templates that help deliver messages in fast, visually engaging ways has risen.
Screen Shot 2017-12-15 at 10.47.45 AM

Fast typography templates: 

Stomp – Typographic Intro by Mnemonick

Rhythmic Typography by blinque

Rhythmic Opener by levmotion

Urban Opener // Dynamic Open by makcinema

#4: Color fonts

"Color fonts are poised to take over the graphic design world in 2018... this unashamedly in-your-face trend promises to put the fun back into typography."
Grace
Grace Fussell
Writer, Tuts+

The Fiesta Color font (pictured below – available to download on Envato Elements or DIY with this tutorial) highlights a new trend of colorful, custom fonts. We think this trend will continue into 2018. 

Confetti Type by rhett
RibOne font by Sentavio
Circle Dot Alphabet by itefan
Oilvare Font by adamladd
Abstract ABC by Jim_LePage

#5: Future bass

"THE dominant 2017 audio trend on AudioJungle was Future Bass. While there've been a few noteworthy emergences, such as the SynthWave renaissance we're seeing, it's the contagious sub-lines, the slick sidechaining, and the catchy chopped vocals that have made Future Bass the big consistent winner this year, which is still non-stop exploding.
AJ
AudioJungle review team
Envato

What’s next in audio trends for 2018? The reviewers said that “we may expect to see a continued and rising interest in ’80s Synthwave (à la Blade Runner, Stranger Things), Hybrid HipHop tracks (sporty stuff!) and we also have the more subtle Chill-Step showing strong signs of proliferation.”

#6: Simplicity in email design

"I think email will become sharper, smarter and more simplified... there will still be GIF's, but they'll be subtle and interactive at times. Text and content will be more concise, and I think emails will be created based on that premise. I imagine we'll actually see more text-dominant emails with text links, and less overwhelming imagery."

#7: Return of the 90's (and 80's)

"2017 was big on bringing back loads of 90's design, especially early 90's American pop influenced design. We're seeing more nods to the 80's creeping in. 2018 could see us rehashing more 80's & 90's pop designs, as well as grunge, earthy tones being used in creative ways."

#8: 2D + 3D design

"We're going to see a lot more of 3D and faux 3d effects, abstract & geometrical elements flowing into the designs to help enhance the visual impact of landing pages, hero sections and newsletters. This will naturally also expand into print and out-of-home advertising platforms. With the evolution of screen technology in recent years, motion graphics will be taking advantage of this design language and have a particularly strong presence in 2018."

#9: More microinteractions

"These small “product-related moments” add magic to sites, delighting and surprising users, while at the same time engaging users and enhancing user experience."
Jenni-McKinnon_avatar_1496367993-64x64
Jenni McKinnon
Freelance writer, Envato

A microinteraction is a small moment that accomplishes a single task. We’ve seen them everywhere from social media sites to our WordPress themes on Themeforest, and it’s a design detail that will only grow in popularity.

#10: Print isn't dead

"Designers feel strongly and positively about print, and print remains crucial to how professional graphic designers make a living. Print lends itself to certain audiences and offerings where communication needs to be retained, contemplated, touched or trusted."
Screen Shot 2017-12-15 at 10.17.48 AM
Eric Schwartz
Content Insights Manager, Envato

According to a study done by Graphic Design USA (GDUSA), 97% of graphic designers work on print design projects, compared to 36% who work on TV, film, or video projects. The top print project types include brochures, marketing materials, cards, and direct mail.

People are consuming online video at an increasing rate. More than half of all people watch online video every single day.

Videos are highly engaging and compelling to watch, share, and post. Video posts on social media get 1,200 percent more shares than text and image posts combined.

90 percent of consumers find product demo videos helpful to their decision making process. Add in the fact that 59 percent of senior execs prefer video over text, and it’s easy to see why LinkedIn now offers native video on its platform.

Companies who use video enjoy more web traffic, more social shares, and more conversions. With the rise of Snapchat and Facebook Watch, it’s about time LinkedIn joined the social video scene.

What Is LinkedIn Native Video?

As of August 2017, users can now film or upload video directly to LinkedIn using the LinkedIn app on their phones or via the website on their desktop computer. Videos can be as short as 3 seconds, and captured in either vertical or horizontal format.

As brands continue to bend over backwards to humanize themselves to consumers, this new video functionality gives LinkedIn a welcome personality refresh. By its very nature, LinkedIn has always been the most polished and professional of social networks. Now, people can see the face behind the headshot, or the people behind a company.

Sharing a video is as simple as sharing anything else on LinkedIn. Whenever you create a new post, you’ll now see a camera icon or video button.

One of the great things about LinkedIn is that it lets videos shine in all their glory. Once the user clicks play, they instantly take over the screen. The default setting on Facebook, on the other hand, is to start playing videos while they’re still thumbnail size.

And that’s not the only great thing about LinkedIn video. Once you post a video, you get access to the same audience insights you see with all your other LinkedIn posts. Discover the titles and locations of your viewers, where they work, and view engagement stats like total views, likes, and comments. Now you’ll know exactly how well your video content is performing on LinkedIn, since you’ll see insights directly from the app, instead of just seeing your YouTube video views go up without having any idea of whether it was your LinkedIn post that drove them.

There are a few other features worth mentioning. Users can tag people whenever they post a video (probably best to reserve this option for your costars, rather than tagging that one prospect who keeps ignoring your emails). You can also add hashtags to increase the discoverability of your video, and you have 700 characters to sell your video and include links to other content. Especially popular videos can be linked to within the Media section on your LinkedIn profile.

A Few Caveats

Before you faint with excitement, be aware that there are a few drawbacks to LinkedIn video. Chances are these feature gaps will be addressed soon, but you’ll want to be aware of them as you start filming.

Recording:

  • There’s no live streaming – yet. Fortunately, there’s a decent compromise: users can record a video using the LinkedIn app on their phone, and then immediately publish it afterwards as an almost-live video.
  • There are no captioning features available, so you have to rely on users clicking “unmute” to hear what you’re saying, or you can get creative with cue cards or video editing software to add subtitles.
  • Videos are limited to 10 minutes in length, and LinkedIn recommends keeping videos between 30 seconds to 5 minutes for maximum engagement. So don’t plan on using this feature to record entire conference sessions at your latest industry event.

Playback:

  • Videos shot in vertical format get cropped to a square in LinkedIn feed, which can result in some awkward neck shots. However, horizontal videos display full-size in the feed, and the vertical videos do expand once clicked.
  • Videos are muted by default, like on Facebook. Users need to click to hear the sound.

Marketing:

  • While you can link directly to a public video post, there isn’t any embed functionality yet, limiting your ability to host LinkedIn videos on your website and landing pages.
  • LinkedIn Native Video is currently only available to individual users on LinkedIn, not company pages. But your team can arm your marketing and recruiting staff with video assets and ideas to promote your brand on your behalf, and you can always reshare their posts on your page.
  • There’s no dedicated video tab yet, so you have to hope you’ll show up organically in people’s feeds or use hashtags to increase your discoverability.

5 Ways Your Brand Can Use LinkedIn Video

Even with its limitations, LinkedIn video is still a big deal. Native Facebook videos get 10 times as many shares as embedded video, and the average social video keeps 37 percent of viewers watching all the way to the end.

Get ready for your video content to enjoy more success than it has before. Here are five types of video you can create for LinkedIn.

1. Upcycle your content

Content marketers love to “upcycle” their content. This technique allows them to get more out of one piece of content by sharing it in different formats, such as a blog post, podcast, a series of tweets, and video.

Repurpose your blog posts into videos for LinkedIn. You could do a deep-dive on one section from the content, or share the sub-headings so people click through to read more in detail. Here’s an example from Moby Siddique of RedPandas:

Alternately, you could create videos dedicated for social media. Many business professionals log in to LinkedIn every morning to get their daily business news fix from sites like The Wall Street Journal. Now those publishers can share the latest headlines via video posts. Rodrigo Brancatelli, Senior Editor at LinkedIn, shows how the BuzzFeed-style video popular on Facebook can perform just as well on LinkedIn:

2. Humanize your brand

Perhaps the biggest opportunity for businesses with LinkedIn video is the ability to put a face to the brand. Videos of your team brainstorming during a meeting, or sketching new creative, endear customers to your company. Share a compelling video case study or customer testimonial. Videos are expressive and make your brand feel human in ways written materials aren’t capable of.

Videos can amplify your recruiting efforts on LinkedIn. Show a day in the life at your office, or interview employees for an update on their latest project or their best tip of career advice. These will pop a lot more than the “So and so is hiring!” text posts that inundate the main LinkedIn feed. CEO Sam Shank shared a recent team lunch at HotelTonight, earning almost 1000 likes and 50 comments:

3. React to events

Behind-the scenes looks at events are made for social video. Allen Gannett, CEO of TrackMaven, connected with Cathy McPhillips, VP of Marketing for Content Marketing Institute in the hall at the latest Content Marketing World. In the quick video below, she shares her #1 tip for event marketing. It’s timely, it’s relevant, and it’s quick to watch.

Video also transforms boring marketing news into something people will actually pay attention to. People probably won’t read the press release announcing your latest store opening, but they might actually watch a ribbon cutting ceremony on LinkedIn. Adena Friedman, CEO of Nasdaq, made a GIF celebrating MongoDB’s IPO. This fun video shared the news in a way that instantly gets the point across.

4. Explain your product

Some of the most effective types of marketing videos are product explainers, demos, and tutorials. Explain your products or services via LinkedIn video. The video insights may reveal the types of people interested in your product, such as publicists or IT pros, who you can then target in your advertising both on LinkedIn and other networks like Facebook and Google AdWords. You might even begin to create new content targeting those users specifically.

Video helps B2B companies make “boring” products quirky and interesting. Brian White of AgilityWorks Limited knows that screengrabs of CRM software just aren’t as fun to watch as a bunch of toy cars racing around your Macbook. With the power of video and a trending topic (#bigdataweek), he’s able to reach more users and promote his product.

5. Partner with influencers

With LinkedIn Pulse and last year’s foray into Influencer videos, LinkedIn has been on a slow but steady course towards fostering its own group of native influencers. These videos offer another way brands can partner with influencers. Event marketers can interview keynote speakers ahead of time, or give a sneak peek of their presentation, to build interest and attract attendees.

Influencers too have opportunities with LinkedIn video, from product unboxings to sharing their reactions to industry news or conference event sessions. LinkedIn Influencer Goldie Chan demonstrates how LinkedIn can be both a place to discuss professional business updates, as well as a fun social network where you can use video filters. No word yet on how soon these Snapchat-esque filters will be accessible to general LinkedIn users.

Another LinkedIn influencer, Viveka von Rosen, uses video as teasers for her latest LinkedIn Pulse articles:

Get Your (Phone) Camera Ready

If you’ve been ignoring LinkedIn, this video announcement means you really can’t do that anymore. Video boosts user engagement for brands on Facebook and Snapchat, and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t do the same on LinkedIn.

As with anything, jumping on this trend early can help your brand stand out as a major player in the long run.

Every day, people create things using products from Envato. From websites for small businesses to music videos for massive artists like Kanye West, our marketplaces serve a wide variety of customers.

Made with Envato is our initiative to unearth and share what our community of customers make using our products. In this article, we’ll take a look through some of the best audio and video projects shared with us in the last two months. Including by one of the most powerful, and heavily spray tanned political leaders in the world.

Donald Trump

Using: Suspense by Andrew_G

In case you’ve forgotten, Donald Trump is the actual president of the United States. Yet, even though he won the race for the White House over a year ago, he’s treated his first twelve months as if he’s still campaigning against Hillary Clinton. Case in point is this video released on his Facebook page in December.

Using Envato item, Suspense by Andrew_G, the video criticizes former FBI chief, James Comey, and claims the FBI’s reputation is in tatters. “But fear not,” he says. “…we will bring it back to greatness.”

The video has been viewed 884 thousand times.

Suzuki

Using: I Feel like a King by AVOCADO_SOUND

Suzuki has used the Envato track I Feel like a King in an ad for its SV650X ABS motorbike.

The title, which makes up the lyrics of the track, really sums up what this ad is trying to do for the viewer – make them feel like a king. And it mostly succeeds.

Bull

Using: Fight Night Opener by nixstudioedition

US TV show, Bull, has used nixstudioedition’s Fight Night Opener in the ninth episode of its second season which aired around Thanksgiving.

After releasing his team to enjoy the holidays with their families, Bull finds himself working solo, helping a boxer being tried for murder. In a scene centered around the wrestling ring, you can see the Envato item.

Doorson

Using: Inspiring Cinematic by original_soundtrack

Door company, Doorson, has used Inspiring Cinematic by original_soundtrack in this montage showing off their product. You get a glimpse of the technology, and of the door in action, as well as the ways you can customize your door. And it’s all tied together by this purposefully intense track.

Battle Dogs by Rooster Games

Using: Action Dubstep 2 by kloudization

Rooster Games which has over 200 thousand subscribers on YouTube has put together this trailer for their game, Battle Dogs, available on Google Play. It offers a quick run through some of the action of the game. It’s made all the more snappy by the use of Action Dubstep 2 the track by kloudization.

Iloura

Using: Timelapse Trip-Hop by khursey

This epic showreel from Video Effects company, Iloura, shows off their ability to create realistic environments and blend it with real footage. The sensational visuals paired with Timelapse Trip-Hop by khursey make a great video.

Immortal-Arts

Using: Epic Technological Trailer by new-genesis

Immortal-arts, which also specializes in creating real looking visuals that are actually CGI, have used Epic Technological Trailer by new-genesis in its showreel. The track helps create a sense of epic excitement.

Christina Aguilera

Using: Wind of Change by Wayman

Christina Aguilera wrote the song “Change” in response to the Orlando shooting that happened in 2016 at a gay nightclub. To roll the song out, the pop music artist created a lyric video that blended the song’s words with images of herself growing up. To achieve this she used Wayman’s Wind of Change template from VideoHive. It perfectly captures the intimate nature of this song.

Marc Pro

Using: Action Sport by florews

This Marc Pro Crossfit commercial aired nationally in the US during the 2017 Reebok Crossfit Games. It’s a slick video, showing a lot of incredibly fit people exercising. And, it uses Action Sport by florews.

Greenpeace

Using: Traveler by MValentino

This animated video from Greenpeace, made by Latte Creative, is gorgeous in its visuals but serious in its message. It focuses on explaining the case of 30 peaceful protestors who were imprisoned for hooliganism, asking for the world’s support to help free them. It’s very effective and uses Traveler by MValentino.

Uberchord

Using: Energetic Sports Stomps & Claps by melodrama

Uberchord is a crowdfunding product that aims to create an app to help people learn to play instruments using their mobile phone or tablet. The video conveys a lot of information, with no voice over and all through text. It uses Energetic Sports Stomps & Claps by melodrama.

Listerine

Using: Uptown Summer Funk by ABSounds

So… this ad is kinda weird. To advertise Listerine, the company employed a guy to dance in the street and try and get people to join in. 25 people agree to dance. 18 of them happen to use Listerine. And, uh… that’s that. It uses Uptown Summer Funk by ABSounds.

The Infamous Team

Using: In Future Bass by Seven_Pounds

This impressive video from Infamous Team has gotten over 128 thousand views on Facebook. It features people on dirt bikes doing stunts and uses In Future Bass by Seven_Pounds.

Outlaw Partners

Using: Dubstep Ident by Andy_Grey

This montage of Julian Carr skiing, by Outlaw Partners, uses the track Dubstep Ident by Andy_Grey. It’s well shot, well edited and quick.

MobiSlyder

Using: Arrow Slide by yeremia, Mobile Phone Corporate by BILDER

MobiSlyder is Glidetrack’s answer to smooth panning when filming something on a mobile phone. And, for the product video, they’ve used video graphics template Arrow Slide by yeremia, as well as the Mobile Phone Corporate template by BILDER.

It’s well paced, mixed with clear and well-shot footage of the product as well as 3D mockups of it. And, the template ties it all together really well. It’s great use of an Envato item.

Mario Sandoval

Using: Journey to the Inside of a Sponge, Microscopic Filamentous Algae, Bipartition cell. Reproduction 01, Embryonic Formation, Microscopic Filamentous Algae and Mosquito Larvae 3, Cell Division 3, Microscopic Seed 001 by Juanjosejimenez

This beautiful video, created by Bratvolk Studio for the Spanish chef, Mario Sandoval, explains the concept of macrobiotic food for an event that took place in Madrid. The video is stunning, almost exclusively because of the footage that makes it up. And, that footage happens to be mostly made up of items from Envato. 7 of Juanjosejimenez’s microscopy items feature in the video.

Historia (History Channel Spain)

Using: Microscopy: Mosquito Larvae 08 by Juanjosejimenez

Spain’s version of the History Channel has made a documentary on the rising temperature of the earth, with the use of an Envato item. Another of Juanjosejimenez’s items, stock microscopic footage of a mosquito, features in this promo.

3D Baby Shark Song

Using: The Shark Song by Stockwaves

With over 1 million views on YouTube, this animation by Baby Learning World, a channel which produces nursery rhyme songs and videos, has used Stockwaves’ track The Shark Song. Kids videos like this are very popular on YouTube. Quite often, they’ll use a track like this from a stock music site like our’s, and blend it with their own footage or animation.

Amanda Cerny

Using: Indie Pop by Sokolovsky

Amanda Cerny is a YouTube cosplay queen with over 1.9 million subscribers. Here she shows her audience how to do vintage Catwoman makeup. And for the background music, she’s using Indie Pop by Sokolovsky. The video’s been viewed nearly 1 million times.

NetWork Turkiye

Safari by Nuclearmetal

Finally, this beautiful video by Network Turkiye, offering a behind the scenes look at a photoshoot for its Spring/Summer campaign is a visual treat. Shot on safari in Africa, it’s tied together extremely well by Safari from Envato author, Nuclearmetal.

Conclusion

Launching pretty much anything these days requires a video that can be shared online. But, showcasing mobile apps visually presents a unique set of challenges. What makes an app product promo video successful is often how well you put it in context. Which means your video needs to be a mix of showing the app in action, with someone using it, and explaining its features through onscreen text, and possibly a voiceover.

The beauty of a marketplace like Envato is that there’s no need to start filming people using your product from scratch or feel like you need to pay a motion graphics designer to wrap it all together visually. Instead, our video marketplace is full of templates that make it easier than ever to showcase your app, saving time and money.

This list of the 52 best mobile app promo video templates offers something for every type of mobile app. From polished and professional, to restrained and futuristic, to colorful and exciting, this selection is robust. So, scroll through, and odds are you’ll find something on brand for you.

Stylish App Promo Kit by iluzie

If you’ve paid attention to design trends of recent times, this template is on point. It’s bright, on the verge of busy, and features a brash mix of eye-popping colors that somehow find a balance together. The mix of attention-grabbing transitions, animations, and clashy layers of colorful elements find harmony thanks to their proportions in the context of the design as a whole. The main elements, being the iPhone model displaying the app, and the text, are big and really dominate the screen. While the template is eye-catching, it’s your app that will be the ultimate star.

iPromo – App Presentation by Jenivest

Focused, minimal, yet filled with moments of energy, this template is beautiful. It offers dark and light versions of its color scheme, and will more or less make your video look like an Apple commercial. It’s breathtaking.

App presentation by Reflaxess

This smooth, slick template uses soft colors, elegant glass-like transitions, and animations that glide with ease. Modern, and professional looking, it’s a fully realized concept that doesn’t skirt around the edges. It’s eye-catching and attractive.

Phone App Presentation by MU5T

Similar to the template mentioned above, this one is beautifully animated with soft colors and smooth animations. The layouts are very clear, providing a diversity of ways to show off your app, and explain its features in the text.

Phone X – App Presentation by EasyEdit

Mimicking Apple’s current style of graphic design, and featuring the new iPhone X, this template offers an easy way to make your app video fresh and up to date. It works to a refreshing white canvas, and mixes in bright colors, and rounded rectangles, which serve as windows to your app. Along with the iPhone X, you can choose from a number of older iPhone and Samsung models.

Mobile App Website Promotion by ouss

This is a very cute stop-motion style of animation. Featuring bright backgrounds and enthusiastic use of drop shadows, this type of template might actually help you break through on social media because it’s a little different. It’s cute, it’s eye-catching and it features iPhone and Android versions.

Website and App Promo by Videostones

These guys feature a number of different environments you can show your app off in. This one is in a home office setting with iPhones, iPads, and iMacs there to display your app or website. It’s very well done, but I think the impression it makes on your audience is really going to be affected by the speed of the demo and the music you put behind it.

Stylish Mobile App Promo by Videostones

This template feels very of the moment. The glistening lens effect included is attention-grabbing the colors are modern yet neutral, and the pace mixed with this style of music is really captivating. It feels very fresh.

Mobile App Promo by Videostones

A third, and very different concept from these folks. Here we have the iPhone model as usual, but the virtual environment made of colorful squares is very much the star of the show. It’s versatile allowing you to show footage through them. That option mixed with the footage you show on the iPhone model, along with the text creates the illusion of a very fully thought out concept.

Dynamic Mobile App Promo by Videostones

If you’re going for something short and sweet, but that carries a lot of impacts, this is one to consider. Featuring a very convincing iPhone 6 model, cool glitch effects and lens flares, this template feels modern and detailed thanks also to the subtle moving elements that fill it out.

iPhone Web / App Promo by Imocean

Featuring dark colors with restrained color highlights, smooth and purposeful animations of each element, and a very ordered use of text, this template is great for something corporate. If your app is targeted towards businesspeople or professionals this is perfect.

Iphone 6 Flat App Presentation by Rad0n

Simple and elegant, this presentation template is well suited to videos aiming to have the viewer really focus. The animations are very smooth, the model of phone is very much the star of the show, and the background is a neutral dark grey with the text a simple white. Phones are available in black and white. It’s certainly very Apple-inspired.

Promote Your iPhone 6 APP by Dark_Monkey

This package includes one of the most impressive animated iPhone models I’ve seen thus far. You can even customize the logo on the back of it where the Apple logo normally is. Possibly as a result of the effort that went into the 3D iPhone model, the template spends a little too much time showing off the phone model itself rather than the software. But, where it does show off the software, there’s enough of an opportunity to really show what you’re selling. It won’t suit every app, but it’s certainly a great option for something visually breathtaking. And, the phone is offered in a couple of different color variants.

Iphone 6 App Presentation Kit by DREAMYARD_Visuals

Clean and tidy, this app presentation kit by DREAMYARD_Visuals possesses a sense of clarity you should be looking for in an app reel. Thanks to its neutral grey background and blue details on some of the text and the borders of transitions, it feels modern and fresh.

There’s also another very similar version of this with a white background, an Apple Watch, and a couple of different variations of the iPhone to play with.

Iphone 6 UI Presentation by CG-COVER

This iPhone 6 UI presentation template would be a good fit for a luxury audience. With blues and silky blacks in the color schemes, smooth crossfades, and slow moving animations of iPhone models in either black or white, this pack is great quality. You’ll lift your app explainer into a visually stunning and very digestible video with this one.

Modern Mobile Presentation by arleksey

Simple, but stunning, this template’s use of contrast and sparing use of colors will put your app design front and center. The way the iPhone models flip in and out is smooth and swift, creating a unique energy that’s accessible, yet snappy.

Mobi – App Promo Toolkit by AmigoProductions

This template is simple and clean with a bright color palette. It’s bundled with a bunch of great hand gestures which look a little plasticky. But, I think ultimately the effect suits the heightened reality of the rest of the template and distinguishes those elements from your UI.

Quality App Promo by Numerals

This is one of the best-organized app promo templates I’ve seen. It gives you a great structure to work with, offering numerous different ways to show different perspectives of your app. Its color palette is modern and fresh, but neutral enough not to date too quickly. And there’s a real flow to it, meaning the viewer can easily follow along with the information you’re delivering.

Mobile App Promo by highrise

This mobile app promo template is very sharp. The color palette is straightforward, with iPhone models available in three different colors, and animation of those models is swift and eye-catching. It makes the whole template feel snappy.

Phone App Presentation Template by 3uma

It could just be the music in this item preview, but if your app is a medical one you will definitely want to consider this template, and a stock music track like this. Its design is clean and modern. The mix of bright blues on top of the dark blue/greyish environment really makes it feel sleek. This color palette also helps the content on the phone screen stand out. There’s room for a lot of detail in the text, but the layout stops it from being overwhelming.

Tablet Presentation Pack by 3uma

There are a couple of different versions of this one beyond just the tablet presentation pack. It has a minimalistic, modern design and uses circles behind the main text, making it easy for the eye to notice and read. The layouts are very clean and the tablet is animated enough to make your app the focus rather than the design of the 3D phone.

Phone App Presentation Template by 3uma

This phone presentation app is one of the slickest I’ve seen. It’s got a really pulled back rhythm to it, and pairs well with a modern “technology” style music track like the one in the preview. You can pick and choose the images shown in the main presentation, as well as, of course, customize everything shown on the iPhone. The transitions and speed of the animations are incredibly smooth. It establishes a level of elegance that sets it apart.

Mobile App Promo by Dream_motion

This one is really all about the iPhone model. The way it animates has such an energy to it that the whole thing becomes exciting. The rest of the template is very plain which is not necessarily a bad thing. It does, however, mean you’ll have to inject your brand into it which can be as simple as using your company font and color scheme. Plus, hopefully, the images of your app can speak for themselves.

iTheme | Web App Mock-Up Footage by Premiumilk

If you’re going for elegance with a capital ‘E’, consider this one by Premiumilk. If your app can mostly speak for itself, and you’re planning to add a voiceover to it, then this could really work for you. The slow panning around people using iPhones and iPads is shot really well and placed on top of a white background. It’s undeniably Apple-like. And being such, there are clear constraints as to how many things are on the screen at any one time. Mostly it’s just going to be your app, and that’s a great challenge to help you focus your ad.

Wire App Theme Promo by Premiumilk

Now listen, this template is very creative. It’s otherworldly in many ways, but still very warm, colorful and accessible. The only element that will polarize people is the use of red hands for the gestures. It’s not a total dealbreaker, but I’ve got to admit they’re a little hard to get used to. The rest of the template is truly fantastic. It’s colorful, eye-catching, yet maintains a cozy, inviting feel to it. And it gives you a great range of tools to explain whatever it is your app does.

Home Footage Mobile Mockup by Premiumilk

This template gives you a pretty straightforward set of scenarios to put your app in. They’re all made up of stock footage of people using iPhones, iPads, and computers that you can add your app to. It’s all well shot with a soft filter applied. And your app is center stage, meaning it really needs to speak for itself.

Usually, shots like these would make up small elements of a broader ad. So, consider blending this with another template.

New Mobile App Presentation – iOS & Android by digitalproducts669

Let your app step into the spotlight with this bright, colorful and simple template. Featuring an iPhone X model, which isn’t overemphasized, this presentation makes your work the star. It features an impressive balance of imagery and text, as well as playful animations that will make it accessible to most people.

Application Promo Pack by Chechikov

The word to describe this pack would be “friendly”. Featuring smooth animations of both the text and the iPhone models, as well as a neutral color palette. It’s timeless.

Mobile App Phone 6 Presentation by FlyingPillow

The word for this one is “clarity”. With crisp animations and great use of colors and drop shadows, this template draws the eye intuitively to what you want the viewer focusing on. The way the app screenshots animate in partnership with the text is very well thought out. And, the choices available in the layouts on offer make this a fantastic bundle to own.

Prism // App Promo by rigsmotion

If your app is fun and targeted to a younger crowd, this fantastic template will be a great one to check out. It features beautiful combinations of bright colors that can’t help but elicit excitement. Its animations are playful and imaginative. And, it manages to keep things focused and clear when this could easily become too busy.

Smart Watch App Commercial by grey-duck

If you want an Apple Watch ad that more or less looks like it was created by Apple, here it is. At all times the watch face is front and center, with the text revolving around it. Because the actual template is relatively nondescript, and, indeed, very Apple, it’s really on your app demo to do all the talking.

Mobile App Presentation by andreypoleshko

This one’s a little basic, but very fun and quick. If you pick your colors correctly and have an app whose best aspects can be shown off in a pretty quick manner, this could work for you.

Pico // Photo App Promo by rigsmotion

While the iPhone model featured may be dated (it uses an iPhone 5C), this template feels very fresh. Each frame is beautifully animated and laid out. And, even with the older model in use, if you were to use this for your app, it’d come off looking very professional purely by the use of this template.

Dynamic App Promo 2 by DannySkinner

This is a quick energetic commercial that, if executed correctly, can communicate the purpose and value of your app in a quick, concise manner. It’s not super text heavy, so you’ll want your app to do most of the talking. But the flow and layouts ensure the experience of watching this will be a focused exercise.

App Presentation by DannySkinner

This template is a more corporate, text-friendly version of the previous template. It’s slower, with more ease in all the animations, and a great balance of showing off your app on the iPhone model and providing detail in the copy. Paired with the right music, it’ll make for an impressive walkthrough of your app.

Dynamic App Promo by DannySkinner

Super modern with a clean design and great options for customization, this template won’t suit every app but will be a great demo for some. Its most impressive feature is the 3D iPhone model, the detail of which will take your breath away. It possesses an energy and brightness that, if paired with the right music, will really communicate the fun nature of your app.

SmartAds – Smartphone Commercial v2.1 by animland

The color combinations and twirling animations of the iPhone models help the content featured in this template explode off the screen. The brightness of the backgrounds and contrast of the text against them offer an effective way to communicate the features of your app.

Modular App Promo by Pixamins

Light and friendly, this template offers a very “floaty” vibe. It’s a great template for lifestyle apps and will play great to the audience looking for something playful and inspirational. It features a robust set of layouts, a good selection of iPhone colors, animations, and fun, light text animations.

App Presentation Kit by Aquavitae

This template is really gorgeous and modern. The way each section floats on from one to the next is fantastic. The default color scheme is soft but clear. The way different frames of the app float up and swap around is simple and effective. And above all, it’s an intuitive experience for the viewer.

App Presentation by lipovatiyart

The flow of this template is nothing short of beautiful. It’s got a soft nature to it with a fluid sense of movement and animation. There are moments where certain parts of the frame feature lens blur. Even the background and some of the visual effects give off the sense of a liquid-like environment. Using a mix of icons, headings, and body text, the template gives you the opportunity to display information about your app in a clear way. This would definitely be fit if you were wanting your demo to seem modern, professional and really quite breathtaking.

Perspective Mobile App Promo by OVAL

This is a unique way to show off your app. It’s a slower, more gradual app walk-through aided by text bubbles that provide context. It’s very modern and neutral. Your screenshots and app demos will dictate the template’s identity more than anything.

Mobile Presentation Kit by explozed

With a beautiful flow to it, and soft animations and colors, this template comes across as angelic. The smooth flips between sections of the reel feels effortless. There is a robust selection of layouts that feature good opportunity to present your copy describing features of the app. It’s gorgeous but won’t suit everybody.

Modern Mobile Display by Vivec

My guess is the structure of this template is inspired by commercials for the iPhone. The result is something that feels more focused on showing off the 3D iPhone model than the app. That said, if you have a product that can really shine by just being demoed on screen, this could well suit you. Using this template will be more or less like customizing an iPhone, right down to the logo on the back of the phone. If you’re into that idea, this one’s for you.

Phone App Presentation by Lugansky

This is a great option for a business focused app, with its professional color scheme, and straightforward approach to showing off the best functions of the app, text and transitioning between frames. It provides great templates, allows you to change the colors, and, like many of these templates, you can add customer reviews.

Colors – App Promo by Pixrate

This one does a couple of things. It features a treatment of color that’s very in vogue at the moment – really deep and really bright colors – against drop shadows, reminiscent of Google’s material design. But with its use of animated circles forming each background, it sustains an identity of its own. The flow and layouts of this one offer great ways to show off multiple aspects of your app in an intuitive way. Plus, the general look and feel of this are eye-catching and unique. Certainly, one to consider for any modern app wanting a bright, warm and clear way to show it off.

Cosmo l App Promo Kit by Pixrate

Want something futuristic and retro at the same time? Check out this template. It’s got a smooth flow to it and features layouts not dissimilar to many of the others on this list. But blend it with the right music and it carries a punch to it, that creates an energy appealing to a young audience.

Phone X // App Promo Kit by yura_fresh

Featuring the new iPhone X, this app promo kit offers a clean, simple look at an app. In my opinion, the second half of the templates on the white background which are clearly inspired by Apple, are better quality than the first lot. That said, mixing in the first bunch with the second and customizing the color scheme a bit will definitely make a good quality final product.

Minimal App Promo by Turbomonkeys

While I’m not a huge fan of the colors used here as a default, the flow of this template is very nice. It’s soft, minimal and would definitely suit apps focused on wellness, mindfulness and the like. The bunch of layouts included make it easy to explain the best features of your app. And the animations make things easy to follow.

Phone X App Promo by VisualSuperhero

This beautiful app template is colorful but careful in how much it allows on screen in any one frame. It uses transitions and animations between frames that capture the eye. But mostly lets the iPhone X screen showing your app, or a small text box to its side, do the talking. It feels fresh, exciting, and very efficient in its use of space and timing.

Modular App Promo by Hawyar

Although this demo, in my opinion, doesn’t show off the best ways to use the text in this template, or the best font for that matter, it’s still got a very fresh design and a good bunch of layout options. It’s tidy, with a great balance of color and white. And, it provides simple, but clear iPhone animations for you to display your app on. Pick the right music and you’ll have a great app promo.

App Promo Kit X by RwTemplates

This app promo kit features some of the most unique layout and animation options I’ve seen. You can have your screenshot fold out square by square on top of the iPhone X model. You can have multiple screenshots lean out of the phone like a Rolodex. You can even have multiple iPhone Xs crash down in a pile from above if you’d like. These cool animation options, mixed with a soft, professional, and modern template will make it both great quality and fun.

Phone X Promo by Imocean

Bright and fresh, this design, featuring an iPhone X looking model is very current and visually stunning. It’s certain to catch the eye with its bright gradient background that avoids being too overpowering. And the way it lays out your app screenshot with the supporting text makes this all a lovely experience. I highly recommend.

Conclusion

That should give you an idea of the many different ways you can showcase your new app through a product promo video template. We think we’ve included a robust selection of templates to choose from. But, if there’s one not on the list you’d like to suggest, please let us know in the Envato Forums.

Also, now that you hopefully have a template you’re planning to use, you’re going to be looking for a stock music track to go along with it. So, check out this list of the 30 best tracks for a crowdfunding video.

Good luck launching your new app.

Some of the best selling After Effects Templates:

Mosaic Photo Reveal

Create one of the most loved, but also pretty complex photo effects: A photo mosaic, using your very own images. You do need 100 photos to make the most of it, but the plugin also allows creation of an extended 3 minute version, all in eye-watering full HD resolution!

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

With almost 5,000 sales and a nearly perfect rating, there’s no doubt that your chances of succeeding in presenting your product, explaining a concept, or simply telling a great story, are quite high with this one.

Ultimate Earth Zoom 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.

Image: Classy Logo Reveal V2

You might not think that a logo reveal really matters for your business or creative endeavour, but a killer logo reveal can be as much a part of your brand as your logo itself.

Think about MGM’s iconic roaring lion. You’re more likely to picture the animated version, along with the roars themselves, than the static image.

Animating your logo reveal is a great way to help embed your product in your client’s minds and increase brand recall. It can also help provide consistency across your products, advertisements, instruction videos, and more.

Don’t think you’re tied down, either. Warner Brothers Pictures don’t rely on just one reveal style. Their logo reveals are often thematically linked to the feature (though admittedly, recall of the WB brand isn’t much of an issue when they’ve been around for over 100 years). It’s a great way to demonstrate how committed they are to their projects if they’re willing to change aspects of their corporate branding to suit.

For the opening of The Matrix, WB opted for a green palette and a CRT screen flicker to match the computer screens featured in the movie.

While for 2015’s Mad Max, they went with a rust effect to fit the post-apocalyptic theme.

A great logo reveal doesn’t need to be limited to movies and television. Video game and software companies also use logo reveals to great effect. Who hasn’t seen this a thousand times? (Yes, I’m still here, Netflix. Please stop prompting me every few hours.)

And graphics technology company Nvidia’s cool reveal is a staple of many game credits.

Blizzard Entertainment, developers of such games as Diablo, StarCraft, Overwatch, and the global success World of Warcraft, have used custom logo reveals for many of their releases as well. This excellent compilation of Blizzard logo reveals demonstrates how a brand reveal can vary and grow between projects.

Whether you’re producing video games, movies, educational videos, or advertisements, logo reveals are a neat way to tie together your branded content. It helps your clients to recognize and recall your brand later on, and tells them the content they’re engaging with is worth their investment.

The assets available on VideoHive can help you to easily add professional logo reveals to your project. Here are some of our favorites:

1. Light Glitch Logo Reveal

This After Effects project is one of VideoHive’s top rated projects. It’s perfect for any cinema title, corporate, film intro, YouTube Channel, website, movie… whatever you can imagine.

It’s easy to customize. Just drop your logo or text into the placeholder compositions and edit your text on the text layer. It’s very user friendly, and comes with a help file to take you step-by-step.

This project is suitable for CS5.5 and higher. It’s 1920 x 1080 full HD, and runs for 18 seconds.

The audio not included, but you buy it from AudioJungle.

VideoHive author stevepfx has a range of other great options available, so be sure to check the full portfolio.

2. Film Light Logo Reveal

This After Effects project is another detailed offering from author stevepfx. It is reminiscent of the Fox searchlight, and can be easily customized to suit your logo or theme. This style of branding reveal will be suitable for movie, television, or other cinematic-type projects.

All of stevepfx’s projects are easy to customize. Just drop your logo or text into the placeholder compositions and edit your text on the text layer. It’s very user friendly, and comes with a help file to take you step-by-step.

This project is suitable for CS5.5 and higher. It’s 1920 x 1080 full HD, and runs for 13 seconds.

The audio not included, but you can buy it from AudioJungle.

3. Classy Logo Reveal V2

This classy logo reveal has all the hallmarks of a Hollywood blockbuster. You have the choice to with or without the shooting star effects, and can easily change colors and shades.

It also has an easy black and white option, too.

This project is suitable for Adobe After Effects CS4 and above. It is full HD with 1920 x 1080 resolution, and runs for 17 seconds.

The audio is not included, but is available from AudioJungle.

4. Superhero logo

It’s always hard to go past a Batman reference, so I couldn’t let this gem go. This great Superhero reveal contains some distorted transitions between various superhero icons, ending with your brand icon. It is very easy to edit – you can even add the real superhero logos if you need – and also comes with the distortion audio used in the demo.

This Apple Motion 4 project is in full HD with 1920 x 1080 resolution, and runs for 10 seconds.

5. Quick Logo Reveal

This quick cartoon logo reveal is quirky, fun and unique. It will certainly stand out.

It will work with any logo, and though it’s only 5 seconds long it will stick in viewer’s minds.

It is compatible with Adobe After Effects CS5 or higher. It comes in both full HD at 1920 x 1080, and HD at 1280 x 720.

The sound effects are included!

6. Platinum Logo Reveal

If you’re after something a little more prestigious, it will be hard to go past this Platinum Logo Reveal. The platinum shine effect adds a high-class tint to any design.

This comes with 6 pre-made backgrounds, with new ones added in free updates by the author.

It’s a full HD video at 1920 x 1080, and the custom sound effects are also included.

7. Air Traveler – Logo Intro

The Air Traveller project is suitable for travel services or agencies, or anything with a global reach!

All monument images are included, but you can easily replace them with your own cut-out photos, so while this project is aimed at travel agencies, there’s no reason the style can’t be re-appropriated to suit your brand.

The background and colors can be changed to suit your own styles, too.

This project is compatible with Adobe After Effects CS4 and above, and extra plugins are already included.

Demo music is not included, but the music used, iSpy and Smooth Transition Logo, are both available at AudioJungle.

8. Form – Logo Ident

Form is the logo reveal design I think of when I’m thinking of logo reveals.

It opens with a closeup of a large group of particles which form the logo as the frame zooms out.

A smart and intuitive settings panel makes Form incredibly easy to customize, allowing you to switch between the light and dark versions, between logo or plain text, use your own background colors, even use the logo’s original colors for the particles.

This project is compatible with After Effects CS5 or higher. You’ll need a plugin called Trapcode Particular v2.2 to edit but the author has generously offered to covert this for free if needed.

The demo music track used is Elegant Logo by Cyrill_Luzin.

9. Minimal Logo Reveal

This short logo reveal is easy to customize. It’s another great quick revel that still packs a punch.

The project comes with two versions – a circle and a square – and is available in both HD (1280 x 720) and full HD (1920 x 1080) resolutions.

No extra plugins are required. The music is not included, but is available at Hi-Tech Logo.

10. Magma Glow Logo Reveal

This project comes with three logo revel animations with metal textures. This reveal simulates different metals with a hot molten core shining through.
Each of these animations is 15 seconds long. The project is full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution), and is suitable for CS5 and higher.

The demo soundtrack is produced by FruityAudio and can be downloaded separately.

11. Colorful Particles Logo Reveal II

The beautiful, elegant color particles of this logo reveal template could easily suit any brand or project.

The particle colors can be easily changed, and the template can be easily customized by just dragging and dropping your logo in. No extra plugins are required.

The audio is sold separately, and is available from Scoring Audio Geeks on AudioJungle.

Designer sachinjoshi has a range of other great logo reveals. Definitely check them out.

12. Fire Reveal

Fire Reveal is a modern and energetic design combined with powerful atmosphere and organic burning effect. This project is full HD (1920×1080) and HD (1280×720).

If you want a logo reveal that makes a powerful statement – this one’s for you.

Suitable for Adobe After Effects CS4 and above, but this project does require Particular v2.0.

The demo audio for this project is available at AudioJungle.

13. Hi-Tech Logo Reveal 02

One of the more high-tech sci-fi logo reveals on this list. This project takes you on a digital zoom through cyberspace to reveal your brand, and is perfect for program or game designers, or technology companies.

The project is compatible with CS5 and above, and runs for 12 seconds. It comes in massive 4k resolution (3840 x 2160).

No extra plugins are required.

The demo sound effects are not included, but are available from cleanmindsounds on AudioJungle.

14. Elegant Glossy Edge Reveal

This is another great prestige logo reveal. The project generates glossy golden edges against a dark background to create a dramatic, professional, premium logo reveal effect.

The project is compatible with Adobe CS4 and above, and comes in full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution.

The demo music is by AmethistLab, and is available separately on AudioJungle.

15. Adventure Titles

Finally, Adventure Titles is perfect for your big world projects. This reveal would not be out of place with projects like Indiana Jones, Ben Hur, or Assassin’s Creed.

If your business, brand or project would be at home excavating lost cities or travelling the world, this might just be what you’re looking for.

This Adobe After Effects CS5 Template creates a realistic sand (dust, powder) fly away effect.

There are six different looks and four different styles included, and can easily be customized to suit your needs.

The demo audio tracks are separate, but can all be found on AudioJungle:
