Here’s a template I originally put together for my own use but thought I’d share it since it’s pretty useful. This AE template has six different luma matte dissolves that you can use as they are or modify to your liking. Just import the AE project file drop the comps into your timeline. You can also render them out as movie files to use in the NLE of your choice. There are both 720 and 1080 HD versions included, along with a quick reference chart.
Here’s a video preview:
