BREAKING: Free News Templates

Here are some free news templates I created for After Effects CS3. Now you can have realistic news crawlers that don’t make your movie look fake. Just be careful what you write, people will believe anything.

Instructions: Full HD resolution, just place on top your footage, resize and edit headlines. AE CS3 only. Although I included the PNG file with now headlines, so if you need you can add your own…

Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]

Andrew,

Firstly, this is beautiful. Second, I imported this into AE CS5.5. I am new to AE so maybe I am just being naive, or CS5 is too advanced??? but anyway, I rendered the movie as is, but the crawler doesn't crawl.

How can I get the text to move? Also,is it hard to get the time to update every minute? Obviously I don't have a Chyron machine but I like the simulation, as I am doing a faux new video so I can learn the makings of Premiere and AE by doing the green screen and the whole shebang.

Hey Andrew,

This is some really great stuff and would be perfect for our low budget movie. Would it be possible for you to grant us permission to use it in our film? Maybe you could email me something granting permission? We could give you a credit in the movie if that would be of any interest to you?

Thanks!

Just watched the new show FASTFORWARD. In scenes where fictional news shows are seen on TV sets, all are using both of the above Video Copilot presets. What I'd like to know is if Andrew was involved with this show... or if they just used the free preset from this site. I'm guessing the later. Very cool, though! Rock on!

This is awesome! I'm in need of this particular effect right now actually. Still I have to ask . .

Why only in CS3? Was there some ability that it offered that 7 could not do? I only ask because I had thought you said at an earlier time that you were sticking with doing things in AE7 because more people had it and you can always open older projects in newer versions of software.

Can some one with both convert this into AE7?

Nice One. I started work a couple of months ago in an upcoming African news channel. Its been a hell of a workload as there is lots of different programs and features all needing there little look. for the news though they required something abit more conservative and simple compared to your amazing Starship Troopers-esque graphic. The reason we keep it simple is because we have to live key the show on a V.T machine. So all in-house graphics can't be sophistacated as the machine is...well simple. And you have to code the animation into it. So I stay well clear.

Dude, I sooo needed this like a month ago, I have a show called the nightwatchmen chronicles wich entales some night time security guards just annoying eachother and there was an episode I did that took place as a news broadcast and I did my own template and it was no where near as cool as your templates. But now that you posted these up I hope you dont mind that I use them in future episodes. But in case you want to know, I do use on your text projects as my end credits platform for all my episodes. But either way thanks for these projects man they really come in handy. Keep up the bad a%$ work

you never cease to amaze us andrew...


im just a kid who never even know about AE until i googled "lightsaber effect" (out of pure curiosty) and now im hooked on AE! i havent learned much besides what i have gotten from you, and i feel like i can do a lot of things by myself now. (actually i recently bought a book, but you know :P ) adobe should pay you cuz these tutorials made me get cs3! rofl

thank you so much, you cant understand how much we appreciate your hard effort to pump out new tutorials all the time... thanks again!

Oh, by the way, just a little late night tip from me:
If you want the clock to work, rather than a standard static text, there is a effect called Numbers. (Effects>Text>Numbers). That effects creates a text which can do a bunch of things (including a functional clock). I think that's a great effect to use with these great templates, for the ultimate mind blowing realistic result.
