    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if any of you had any templates for After Effects (text templates), which were 5-10 minutes long.

    The ones that I've seen are only 1-2 minutes long and are mainly used for openers to a video.

    I'm looking for a template which I can make a short "text story" from..

    As always, all help is appreciated and rep will be given.

    I wouldn't be able to tell you accurately which template is filling your requirements.

    However, you can check this out and you may probably find what you need ;).

    Text story? I'd recommend using After Effects for epic intros and doing the rest in Sony Vegas, unless you want your story full of rotating angles and other complex effects. Vegas can do a relatively decent job at creating good story lines if you mix it up with images and good songs. The new Vegas lets you export it as a template for AE, so the project can be interchangeably edited.

    Whichever template you choose, you should be able to re-use it's text elements along with the pre-built text effects, to achieve a 5-10 minute video.

    In After Effects >> Right Click Comp tab where the timeline is and reset comp duration to desired length 5 minutes - 10 minutes.

    Edit your first few phrases / sentences til you are satisfied & then copy paste and change keyframes and throw on an adjust tint effect or something to alter the appearance enough that it isn't repetitive.

    Depending on the template, you should be able to change starting keyframes for each text effect and re-use these in your composition.

    Most templates, even the short ones that are 30 seconds in length can be re-purposed.

    (If you have several good templates on your hard-drive)

    In your After Effects project >Import>Other template.aep (by importing another AE project/template you can drag and drop all of it's comps onto your main timeline and access numerous variations of all the templates you have)

    This is what I would suggest if you need longer video and are intent on using videohive templates.
