Which preset pack is right for me?

There are three big packs. All are awesome. Which one to buy? Lets take a look at what is each one good for.

 

The Most Handy Motion Presets

This is the most popular pack. It’s a selection of the most useful motion presets. The selection is based on the most frequently used animations in promotional videos. Of course, the usefulness varies from project to project, but in general, it can cut the time of getting it done to a half, a third or even more.

This pack is for you if:

  • you are producing promotional videos
  • if you have often tough deadlines
  • if you need to be able to do changes quickly

Technical details

The presets can be used with any type of a layer (image, shape, solid, composition, etc.) The most of animations are done using basic transformation properties. Some animations generates Null objects to keep the anchor point at it’s original place and to make combining of presets possible.

Authors Note

This is my favourite pack of presets. I think I use these presets the most often. With this I can focus on more creative & fun stuff, rather than doing the same “scale up” or “come from left” all over and over again. That also means that I could take more jobs.

 

 

 

3D Motion Presets

If you are working with 3D layers, camera, and would like to create a dynamic animations with a lot of movenemt, this might be the right pack for you.

This pack is for you if:

  • you are producing promotional videos
  • you are working with 3D layers and you like using camera layers
  • if you have a tough deadline
  • if you need to be able to do changes quickly

Technical details

Works with any 3D layer (text, shape, image, composition, etc). The presets can be customised with sliders. Animations generates Null objects to keep the anchor point at it’s original place and to make combining of presets possible.

Authors Note

When I’m working on a 3D video in AE (2D images as 3D layers and camera), I like using these presets because it’s easy and non destructive to make changes. If I would use keyframes in all the simple animations and then changes would be way more difficult. And it’s quick!

 

 

 

2D Text Presets

It’s a selection of 1000+ presets for 2D text layers. It covers the most of the 2D text animations. From the basic text transitions to more complex stuff.

This pack is for you if:

  • you work with text layers
  • you like animating individual characters, words or lines
  • you want to save some time on animating text
  • you want to experiment & try various of different animations on your text

Technical details

The presets works with text layers only. The text is animated using one or more animators & range selectors (a special perperties of text layers) of which every value can be customised.

Authors Note

I use this pack generally for titles. It’s easy to look up a preset by animated properties, plus I can additionaly adjust everything. Creating a text transition using animators & range selectors are often time consuming (if you are not a skilled veteran).
