Moving on, let’s have a quick look at what the community chose as most popular over the last couple of months!

Best selling After Effects Templates

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 the creation of an extended three-minute version, all in eye-watering full HD resolution!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

For those of you that are into travelling, 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 travelling isn't your thing, you can still use this template to produce movie-grade location presentations including markers and annotations!

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.

Last but not least, wrapping up our list of bestselling items from 2017, this After Effects logo template converts any logo into 3D, adding customizable effect height and adjustable colour lens.
