So, I am sure you guys remember the news flash about Rerendered merging with VideoHive… right? Well since then we have had a ton of the authors, and quite frankly amazing AE artists, port their files over from Rerendered.com into the VideoHive system. This means there are tons more files available on VH than ever before, and from many authors you probably don’t even know about. I have compiled a list of the 36 awesome pieces I liked the most, but I am sure there are many more to come!
Full Graphics Package 1
Here is a super useful package of lower thirds, bumpers and other handy templates. There are some interesting flowery growing elements too, which makes this project have a requirement of Trapcode Particular 1.5.
This is a simple explosiony style template with some stars and bright blue colors. Great for products or announcement graphics!
Block Spin Transition
This is a really fast moving animation comprised of two precomps, the first that breaks into cards, twists and turns, then forms back together to create precomp number two.
Everyone’s favorite title sequence. This is possibly one of the best renditions of the blob that I have seen as of yet, but you have to have Trapcode Particular and Trapcode Shine to get the effect just right.
Walls of Wood
This is a sweet looking animation that looks like you are inside of cabinet with a flashlight looking for text layers and finding them on different shelves at different levels.
RR Promo PKG
Very slick looking template, shiny surfaces and overall very nice polished look. The gold texture and color really works well with the blue background and the typeface used. You have to have Knoll Unmult for this to work correctly (for the lens flares).
A great template if you are creating some promos for a show, or a viral video with some characters that you need to introduce. Lots of moving elements and light sweeps in this one.
Torched Logo 1
This almost reminds me of RVD2 when the lightsabers burn the walls. This animates lines as though they are being burned in with a torch, along with embers and glowing residue.
A nice little project, more of an element instead of a template, this could be used to enhance a cartoon/real life video project, or just use it to add some depth to a mograph field you are creating. Uses Trapcode 3D Stroke.
This is really simple, but really well put together. It has a cloud at the beginning with a fade on the text coming in. This has Magic Bullet Looks Suite used in the project, but you can probably achieve the look without it with some knowledge of AE color correction.
This is a realistic looking polaroid photo type of animation, and you could implement footage or stills into each one of the photographs to make some interesting stop motion type animations.
Sci Fi Binoculars
This is a great overlay if you are working on a spy composition or promos or whatever… all you do is replace your footage where needed and you have all those cool spy stuff on those high tech binoculars like on James Bond movies.
To me, this just screams corporate. Looks like something I would use to quickly throw together some simple graphics for a corporate client wanting some graphics in a pinch.
This is a really awesome looking, green themed, futuristic looking template filled with 18 different places to plug in footage, stills or any other kind of media. No third party plugins needed.
Hard hitting, red and silver themed broadcast template that kind of reminds me of Iron Man at first, but can be really used for anything you want. Trapcode Shine and Trapcode Particular are required for this.
Particle Text/Logo Animation
This is a really shot template, which was made so that you can just copy the effect into you projects, it has a really cool looking sparkly reveal a and then flies at the camera. Requires Trapcode Shine, Trapcode Particular, and Trapcode Starglow.
Nature Fake 3D
Fantastic use of Trapcode Particular, using trees as custom particles, create a forest with some mountain pictures in the background and implement some text into the middle of the forest.
This is another one of those projects that is just a project, not a template. It’s an expressions based project with cascaded circular target board. The front layer determines the output of the sequential layers.
3D Floor Title
Great looking full template that creates a full room with titles and 3D cameras zooming around… this really is an amazing looking project. Requires Trapcode Particular.
This is a cool looking EKG/Audio Waveform themed template with some typing on effects resembling the Matrix kind of. Requires IL Text Typewriter and Trapcode Shine.
Another one of those drag and drop the elements projects, this has some cool looking gold Trapcode Particular and Shine based sparkling crazy stars.
Amazing street themed template. Lots of streetlights, street textures and street signs with tons of spots to hold video clips.
8mm Film Vintage
Not a template, but a look to put on your footage to give it that “Wonder Years” look.
If you like Video Copilot’s Evolution, this is a mini version of that (not from their pack) with 5 elements available for download.
Light Streak Title
Really quick title reveal with a blue streaky Trapcode Particular based flying particle emitter. Also uses Knoll Light Factory.
Video Card Drops
This is a cool simple project that looks like someone tossing postcards onto a table that can have either pictures or video playing on them.
Very cool use of an out of focus set of particles raining down behind your titles, creates a really nice looking title reveal. Knoll Light Factory and Trapcode Particular are used for this one.
Self Destruct Gauges
Who doesn’t love element packages? this one has a bunch of 30 second loops of gauges that are counting down to possible self destruct and annihilation times… awesome! Uses Trapcode Sound Keys.
This 51 second comp is great for slideshows or really any kind of display you want to use. Very futuristic, but also very modern at the same time… great project file!
Grass & Hair
One of the render heavy, mystical effects that you don’t see used very often is CC Hair. This project gives you some awesome parameters for creating different effects using CC Hair… especially grass! Very useful!
The next few files are going to be from Mr. Justin McClure himself, this one however actually reminds me of the wheat fields in 300. Really shows what you can do with still images. Uses Trapcode Particular and Knoll Light Factory EZ.
Hand Held Camera Rig
Another useful project file, and not a template, this provides a camera rig with slider controls attached to nulls so it is simple and easy to use.nulls
Bounce at Markers
Interesting use of an expression that makes certain things happen at marker points. This one uses a PSD ball to make it self bounce, and then was replicated multiple times to create a cool animation.
Dusty Clouds Fly Through
This is a really great cloud fly through, could be used as a visual effects, could be used for titles, or even slideshows, or as a transitional element… it really is up to you. Uses Trapcode Particular.
3D Text No 3rd Party Plugins
Everyone is always looking for the next new technique… this one is no exception. Simply its a way to get 3D editable type into your compositions without extra plugins or a 3D application.
Lower Third Flip Book
There aren’t many lower thirds on the list, but this one is really great flip book style animation that can be used for all kinds of different scenarios.
