50 Top After Effects Projects and Templates to Watch in 2020

If you’re looking to create some fantastic video productions in 2020 then let us help you along with with 50 of our favourite Adobe After Effects templates!

In this article we’re covering the top After Effects templates for these categories: Broadcast PackagesElementsInfographicsLogo StingsOpenersProduct PromosTitles, and Video Displays.

The following templates are a mix of Envato Elements, where you can download as many as you like for one low monthly subscription and Envato Market, where you can pay as you go.

Broadcast Packages

Having
continuity across all elements of your broadcast is important: It looks
more professional, but it also makes it easier to watch for your
audience. A broadcast package is a simple way to make sure your various
graphics, text styles and animations have continuity and complement one
another.

1. Dark Fields (Broadcast Pack)

Dark Fields is
a cool and fast-paced broadcast package. It includes an opener, closing
credits, three animated backgrounds, lower-thirds, and much more. It’s
easy to customise and there’s a link to the music used in the preview.

Elements

Where
would we be without the people who create the things we just don’t know
we need… until we need them! No matter how great we get at titles or
lower thirds, creating specific graphic elements can just be too big an
ask, so it’s handy to be able to choose from templates that already
exist and can just be customised to suit.

One of my favourite ever templates, Audio Visualizer has
super-cute animations reacting to music. Just add your audio, logo and
