Free Slide – After Effects Tutorial Video
After Effects Text Tutorials of the video
Welcome to Bluefx.net. This tutorial is about my newest template â€“ Free Slide. Why do I call it Free Slide? Because it is free! If you are a Facebook fan, you can download this template for free. So let’s check it out.
You can see the image, with nice shadows. You can also hear the music; but don’t worry, the music is not included â€“ hey, it’s free! You can write your website address; yes, it’s free for Facebook fans; you are hearing the video tutorial, and as you see, the colors in the background can be easily changed. So let’s see the template. First of all, I would like you to download this font â€“ English 111: Adagio BT. Write in this code; check this box; and hit Download. After that, you’ll install the font, and you will have it here.
Now, on the Project panel, you can see that I have these folders; it’s the 00YouChange that you will need to change. This is the main composition; let’s make some room. OK, here we have two picture holders (you can use videos too). Here we have the first text, which is colored with this orange layer; double-click on it and change the text. OK, let’s see the animation â€“ it’s working, great! You can reposition the text if you want to, by adjusting these handles, or making it slightly bigger, or smaller, or you can even change the font if you want.
Good, let’s move on to the next part. This was the first text; then we have the second text. Same thing â€“ double click on the layer and change the text. Here we go to the third text, and finally, to the last text. This one is the web address; it’s quite easy, you have four text layers you need to change. Now, let’s see the images.
I’ll just drag in a couple of videos, so it’s more interesting. Open up, in the YouChange folder, the Picture 1 composition; double-click on it, and here we have this beautiful green layer that we will delete. OK, it’s gone; now let’s use a video. Drag it in, and resize it: Hit S and scale it down. If you are using a video, then make sure you start it here, at the Start Here marker, like this. Now let’s go to the Picture 2 composition; same thing, delete this layer and drag in a video. Let’s start it here, and scale it down. OK, now let’s go to the last picture, and here we’re going to use an image. Delete the green layer and drag in an image. Scale it down, like this. OK, let’s see the main composition: You can see the video, the second video, and the last image. Here comes the web site. Great, we’re almost done.
Just one last thing â€“ click on this Orange layer, called Color. You have the Effect palette here, and select the Fill effect, click on this color spot, and start changing the color. See? It’s that simple. The background color changes. You can use this gray color, if you like, or something like this colder blue. OK, I think it looks great. Now let’s go to the rendering: Click Compositionâ€”Make Movie. I like to use QuickTime here, with Photo JPEG Compression set to Best quality. If you’re going to use audio, click Audio as well.
Now you render, and the video is ready. Thank you for your time, and I hope you enjoy the template!
