Dissolves Pack 01

Dissolves Pack 01 reference-small

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.

Calendar Flip Template

This is a template that I put together from a couple of past projects where I needed to animate flipping through the pages of a calendar.

Here’s a preview of the default animation, which you can of course change to suit your needs.
