    Hey so the last 2 days I've been working hard to learn how to create easy nice-looking video intro's as the ones offered on fiverr.
    I need a lot of video intro's for my personal videos and I don't feel like paying $5 for each 5-10 second video intro. It should be extremely easy to create such an intro.

    All I need is a logo and text reveal video.

    So I searched around on BHW, Google (lol), YouTube and various forums. I figured they use adobe after effects and videohive templates to create the logo's.
    I never used either before...
    I downloaded both today (+ lots of different intro templates) my problem is that after effects is such an advanced tool to use.
    I can't figure how to edit the templates and produce them into videos, even after watching tutorial videos on YouTube and copilot.


    Anybody experienced with this that could explain how it's done from the very beginning to the absolute ending? Or maybe make a full tutorial video?

    In return I could pay you some bucks or create some free video intro's for you? :)

    Just download after effects. Look through a few tutorials on youtube.
    Find a bunch of stock images and viola you're done!

    If you learn after effects well enough you might even sell your own fiverr gig making intros for others.

    Good luck!

    This is exactly what I did... As I typed in the first post, except replacing templates with stock images.
    Couldn't find a decent guide on how to edit a template and produce a video using after effects successfully...

    I did find similar templates, I just lack the knowledge to edit them... There don't seem to be any in-depth video tutorial that describe how to replace missing effects/plug-ins, how to render and produce the template and edit your own logo into them etc.

    Go to videohive and find templates that don't need any plugins, most of the sellers write this is their descriptions. Make sure the templates are compatible with your AF version. Its probably better to start with text only templates - then load the template in AF (file -> open project), and look at the left-bottom side of After Effects, under "source." These are the used elements - text, camera, solids, and so on... the Text layers are marked with the letter "T". Double click on a text element and then change the text(s) - once you are done, add the composition to the render queue (Ctrl+Shift+/). Open the render panel, change output module and "Output to:" Then click the "Render" button.

    At the front line.
    Most of these are done using After Effects and pre-made templates from sites like VideoHive.

    Thats BS. There are a lot of AE free or paid good tutorials available, but if u fail to follow them dont say you CANT find a decent guide. AE is not for everyone though.

    I agree with WPRipper. You just have to work hard so you will learn the basics of AE
    If you follow any tutoral that comes with a template you should learn what you need to edit a template in order to create your own videos.
    These tutorials are basically spoonfeeding you.
    what I am trying to point out is that hou should learn working and not to be taken by hand.
    That's my 2 c
    Good luck!

    You can use animoto to create videos automatically. You just need to provide the pictures and text to animoto.

    This was pretty useful in the 3-4 different templates i've tried I however can't find the "render" button.
    So I still don't know how to export my project as a video.
    When clicking on the export button I only get SWF and XFL as an option which ain't a video I can play I figured.
    I would like .avi or some video format I know of.

    You have to learn After Effects first, there's no other way around that if you plan on doing these yourself...

    Otherwise you won't have a clue on how to change and edit the templates to your needs.

    I've said it numerous times before when people ask about how to learn AEs... Andrew Kramer's Basic Training for AEs:

    My vote too for After effects. Learned from youtube tutorials. If you have trouble to find videos, pm me.
