Each of our templates comes with a video tutorial walkthrough that assumes you have some basic understanding of After Effects. While you don't need to know how to design within After Effects, it would be helpful to know the fundamentals of manipulating the program.
We cannot teach you how to use the program ourselves, but there are numerous resources online like YouTube and Lynda that have plenty of tutorials for novices.
As with anything, it depends on the skills level and the type of template you’re working with. Generally speaking, we estimate it to take a couple of hours to set up a template if you a pro user and up to a day to customize and render a template from scratch for a beginner After Effects user.
Each of our templates comes with a tutorial walkthrough that will show you how to modify the text, images, or video within the template. If you wish to customize the template further, we strongly suggest you seek out websites that focus on After Effects tips and advice. A few of our favorites are Adobe's After Effects Forum, AE Tuts+, Creative Cow.
There are three potential "missing" messages that you may be seeing:
Missing plugins: Although some templates use third-party effects that don't come standard with After Effects, these plugins have been pre-rendered into the templates. If you run into missing plugins, please choose the Pre-Rendered version of the project.
Missing files: This message usually appears if the zip file hasn't extracted properly. For Windows users: try right-clicking the zip file and choosing "Extract All." If that option is not available, try using a different extraction program to unarchive the file.
Missing fonts: Occasionally, artists use specialized fonts in templates. (A download link is usually included with the project.) After Effects will simply change the font to one already installed on your computer. Sometimes, you may need to restart After Effects in order to activate the font.
Our templates can be opened and edited with Adobe After Effects software. All our templates are compatible with After Effects version CS6 and up. Vdeesign templates come with a step by step video tutorial instructions to help you edit and customize each template specifically for your project.
