Extensive After Effects Templates

I made a CS4 Template that should help you guys along if you'd like to use it.
Here's the download link:

I've separated the entire structure into:

Template Masked Wings
Template Masked Face (outline only)
Template Masked Eye
Template DJ Booth
Template Bottom Main Frames
Template Bottom-most Rectangles
Template Frame Outline 

Load your own content in, preferably something different for each of these presets.
Then open up one of the presets above, select the missing/replaceable clip on the time line, then option-drag the clip you want to see there.  Adjust for size as needed.
Your changes will instantly reflect in the TEMPLATE MASTER01 sequence, which is your master sequence.


If you put effects or distortions in your composition, it could cause the image to spill outside the frame. For an easy solution, I created this template mask, just put it on top of your composition and it cuts out all of the unnecessary pixels:







Also - here's a variation on this theme, a CS5 Template, created by VJ Peter Parker:

Enjoy!

And send me some video updates when you get a chance, our time is running short.

We'll be doing the full Shpongletron setup/test on Sunday night most likely.

  1. dude. well first off, awesome effing job. your work is amazing.... seriously. i have a question or two. i've been VJing for a while now, but i'm less into the deep technical side of things and more into other visual methods. so what i'm wondering is, after you use after effects to create your templates and whatnot, do you use modul8 to actually VJ with? or is there other software that is compatible? i have modul8 and i just bought resolume. i've never tried mapping before, but for out burning man theme camp this year, i've gotta learn. and quick. thanks so much!

  2. I use Zebblertron, which is a bit of custom software. But really you can do this with nearly any software. I just pre-make my footage to match the shape I project on precisely. The only "mapping" capabilities I have in Z-tron is four corner skew. New ones are getting added on, but that's that for now.

    See you at the burn!
