Top 3 free After Effects templates websites

Are you searching for “free after effects templates”?

In this post we will provide a list of the top 3 free After Effects template creator websites.

We must mention that this top includes only businesses that create their own AE templates.

If you search on Google, you will find many results and websites that offer free AE templates, but they don’t actually create them.

1.Our top starts with Rocketstock.
We like the variety of free AE templates they offer. You can choose from:

  • Logo reveal
  • Wedding titles and light leaks
  • Social icons pack
  • Text messaging
  • Christmas toolkit
  • Free fire efects
  • Free animated font
  • Free dynamic car gauges
  • Free circle bursts

They provide templates with a unique modern visual style.

The Free Messaging one, this style of animation has been used in movies lately, for example in the movie series “House of Cards”.

2. Fluxvfx is our second choice.

What templates do they offer?
Let’s take a look at the titles:

  • Lower thirds
  • Filmstrip
  • Particle pop
  • Photo negative effects
  • Pop out book
  • Circular frames

So there’s a lower thirds free package, a slideshow template and effects such as particle pop, circular frames or photo negative.

Just like we do, on all our templates’ pages, they provide details such as AE version, resolution, run time, text, video & image placeholders, music and any other features that might be useful.

We should also mention that they do not provide support for these free files.

We like that they offer you the possibility to download all their free After Effects templates in one package.

3. Last but not least, is a great place to find free After Effects templates

We have a wide offer of free AE templates, ranging from explainers to slideshows and backgrounds.
Let’s see some titles:

  • The Mini Explainer Template
  • The People’s Template
  • 3 Free animated backgrounds for news
  • The Free Lower Thirds
  • The Free Slide
  • The Light Show
  • The Colorize Free
  • The Christmas Snow

You can find all of them here, on our free After Effects templates page.

We provide details such as AE version compatibility, resolution, number of text, images and video placeholders, file size, music and plugins, color versions and, on some templates, even the 1 click color changer.

The most important asset that you get when downloading an AE template from Bluefx (be it free or premium) is the video tutorial that shows you step-by-step how to use the template. It’s an enormous plus if you’re a beginner and even if you’re experienced, it helps you save time and edit the template faster.

We also provide useful information regarding the templates that can be edited in other application than After Effects (actually, two of our free After Effects Templates – the 3 backgrounds for news and the lower thirds can be edited in any video application such as Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut).
