AE Juice - Animation Presets, Motion Graphics, Templates, Transitions for After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Other Video Applications

AE Juice Content Packs for Creative Video Editors presented by TET.
Level up you video edits and animations with AE Juice's motion graphics and templates.

Some days you just don't have the time to create flashy motion graphics for your latest video or animation. For some of us it's more a question of our own artistic abilities being a little less than the awesome we'd like them to be. Whatever reason a resource like AE Juice's animation presets, motion graphics, templates, and transitions packs for After Effects, Premiere Pro, and other video applications can really make your work stand out very quickly.

AE Juice gives you access to an instant library of free, premade content elements and sound effects, which you can add to with additional purchases of various themed packs from their store. There are three ways to manage their content, all of which can be used in commercial projects.

The AE Juice Standalone Package Manager.
The AE Juice Standalone Package Manager makes it
easy to browse previews of all your pack contents
and to download and find just the elements you 
actually use - which saves a lot of storage space locally.

The Package Manager

If you have After Effects then simply install the AE Juice Pack Manager Plugin and you can access everything directly inside the program. If not then you can install the Pack Manager Standalone version (which I would highly recommend). 

This will let you browse preview thumbnails of all you pack contents without downloading the entire pack. Some of these packs are huge, supporting up to 4K resolution for each asset. By using the Pack Manager Standalone version you'll only download fully the files you actually use in your projects.

I made the mistake of using the third option, downloading the Animated Markers Pack, that I purchased, directly to my hard drive - four Gigabytes later... there's no way I'll be using everything in the pack at the highest quality but if you do want to store everything locally, the option is there.

Animated Markers Pack

AE Juice's Animated Markers Pack
Animated Markers.
As mentioned I purchased the Animated Markers Pack which features grungy, urban, street style animated elements as well as two animated alphabets. Almost all the elements are fully rendered, transparent video MOV files that will work in most modern video editors (and of course After Effects). I used them with the free, opensource video editor, ShotCut with no issues.

Can I Use This with Cartoon Animator or Moho?

If you're a Cartoon Animator or Moho user looking at this pack and thinking it may be cool to use some of these elements directly inside your animation projects, then Moho does support transparent MOV files. At this time Cartoon Animator does not. You can import the MOV files but the transparent areas will be filled with black.

If you have Reallusion's now discontinued PopVideo Maker software it's easy enough to convert the transparent MOV files to transparent PopVideo files (Reallusion's own transparent video format) which import correctly into Cartoon Animator, transparency intact. It's literally a case of opening them in PopVideo Maker and saving them as PopVideo files.

Alternatively you can plan ahead with your animations, exporting just the elements you need to compose your scenes, along with AE Juice's animated elements, in After Effects, or whatever video editor you use (which I'm told is a pretty standard workflow anyway).

Below is a quick demo animation I threw together using Cartoon Animator for the character, that I exported as a transparent MOV file. Then I composited the character and my two background elements from AE Juice's packs in my video editor ShotCut. It's worth noting that if Cartoon Animator did support transparent MOV files I wouldn't have needed ShotCut at all and the animation would've taken less than a third of the time to create.

Visit the AE Juice Website Store

While you can browse and preview additional packs available in store right in the package manager it's well worth browsing the AE Juice website directly. There you'll find full details of each pack along with examples of them in action.

I want it all Bundle - Tools for Video Editors.
The I Want It All Bundle includes plenty of
assets that can be used in other editors beyond
After Effects and Premiere Pro.
As well, on the website, you'll find package bundle deals with huge discounts, including the I Want It All Bundle Lifetime. You'll also find courses, workshops, constructors, and more.

Some packs are exclusively for use with After Effects, as they include AE project files that let you customize content to suit your needs, but don't let that put you off, there is plenty of content for none AE users.

I only recently discovered AE Juice but already the ease of use, through the standalone Package Manager, will mean that I'm very likely to source many of my graphic elements through their store

The manager makes it so easy to find assets with full animated previews and the ability to play sounds. It's much faster than sifting through folders of content on the desktop.

I encourage you to click the link, try out their Free Resources just to make sure they work with your preferred video editing applications, and then explore the huge range of content. There's bound to be something that will make your edits easier and will elevate your videos to the next level.

Should You Buy or Upgrade to MOHO 13? *Spoiler* Yes. Yes You Should!

MOHO 13's New Character Set. Smith Micro released MOHO 13 , their all in one, 2D animation studio, this week. The question is should you buy or upgrade to the latest version? Obviously I've already spoiled this in the title, so the actual question is why do I think you should buy or upgrade? To be clear, I'm only talking about MOHO 13 Pro. If you're considering MOHO 13 Debut be aware that you're missing out on some of the new features, and a lot of existing features that are only available in the Pro version. Debut is fine if the budget doesn't stretch to Pro, but, if you never want to be disappointed about not having a feature, it's Pro or nothing! The other thing I need to be transparent about is I'm not, by any stretch, a frequent MOHO user/animator. However I took the time to learn MOHO 12 Pro fairly extensively, blogging about my process and sorting out 104 free MOHO training videos into a logical viewing order in the process. I think I ha

Review: CrazyTalk Animator 3 vs Moho Studio Pro 12

Reallusion's CrazyTalk Animator 3 or Smith Micro's Moho Studio Pro 12. Which of these 2D animation applications is right for you? Regular readers of this blog will know I'm a strong supporter, and fairly proficient user of CrazyTalk Animator since version 1. It's a great piece of software for producing 2D animations from purchased content quickly and, with version 3, is easier than ever to create animations from your own art. Lesser known is that I first purchased Moho Studio Pro 12 (then known as Anime Studio Pro 9) back in October of 2012 and have been upgrading it to the latest version ever since because I believed in it as an application for creating great 2D animation to TV quality standard. As such, it's a much more complex application than CTA3 that I only got around to learning properly late last year. I'm still in the process of blogging my progress . Despite this I feel I've learned enough of Moho to compare it to CTA3 to help you determ

Can You Learn Reallusion's Cartoon Animator 5 for Free Using Their 137 Official YouTube Video Tutorials Sorted Into a Logical Learning Order?

Or you could just buy The Lazy Animator Beginner's Guide to Cartoon Animator . While Reallusion's Cartoon Animator is one of the easiest 2D animation studios to get up and running with quickly, learning it from all of the official, free, video tutorials can be more overwhelming than helpful. With more than 137 videos totaling more than 28 and a half hours of tutorials, spread across three generations of the software (Cartoon Animator 3 through 5) it's hard to know if what you're learning is a current or legacy feature that you either need to know or can be skipped. Many of the official tutorials only teach specific features of the software and don't relate at all to previous or later tutorials. As a result there are many features either not mentioned or are hard to find. To make your learning easier, on this page, I've collected together all of the essential, official, free video tutorials and sorted them into a learning order that makes sense. Simply start at

Make Disney/Pixar Style Characters with Reallusion's Character Creator and Toon Figure Bases

The Extraordinary Tourist Classic Coat outfit created using Reallusion's Toon Designer for CC3. I've talked before how I've wanted to get into 3D Disney/Pixar style character animation since I first saw the animated cutscenes for the very first Tomb Raider game back in 1996. It's why I initially bought Reallusion's iClone 3D studio app as soon as I could afford a computer that would run it. But then Reallusion released their 3D Character Creator (CC) for iClone and I wanted to create my characters with that (and I did try with Bat Storm ). But the focus of CC was realism, even with ToKoMotion's stylised body morphs . Now with Reallusion's Cartoon Designer bundle for CC3 which features two packs, Toon Figures , and Toon Hair , designing Disney/Pixar style 3D characters just got a whole lot quicker. The two packs are the bare essentials for creating Toon style characters. Five body morphs (2 male, 2 female, and one adolescent body morph that w

TimeBolt: Fast Video Editing for Anyone Creating Online Courses, Podcasts, or Vlogs.

I resisted making tutorial videos for a long time because I don't like editing. Specifically I don't like editing me teaching as I step students through a process during a screen record. I have a tendency to insert long pauses not just in the middle of sentences but between multiple words in the middle of sentences as my pace matches what I'm doing onscreen. This makes for very long and very slow paced video tutorials. To counteract this I have to edit out all the pauses. This can take hours, or even days on particularly long tutorials. For example, when I created my main course, The Lazy Animator Beginner's Guide to Cartoon Animator , I literally injured the thumb on my right hand, operating my mouse, as I spent weeks taking out all my pauses (seriously, I had to wear a thumb brace for a few weeks to fix the pain). Recently I came across TimeBolt , a very affordable, fast editing application with the featured purpose of removing all the pauses from your video (and even

Creating a G3-360 Head From a Single Photo in Reallusion's Cartoon Animator

Source Photo from Generated Photos . Ever since Reallusion introduced the G3-360 Character Head into Cartoon Animator 4 I've wanted to see if their 360 Head Creator tool could be used to create an animated head using a photo. Part of the reason I've never given this a shot, until now, is that I just assumed it would be difficult, and require a lot of photo editing to blend out the sprite edges. It turns out, creating a photographic G3-360 head is not that much more difficult than creating a cartoon head, and can be done using a single photographic image using my own G3-360 head rigging system . While this article isn't intended to be a full tutorial, I'll run through the basic steps of how I achieved my photographic G3-360 head, shown in the comparison below, of a Cartoon Animator Morph-based head on the left, and my G3-360 head on the right. Pros and Cons Cartoon Animator's morph-based head system is ideal for animating photographic faces. It uses a semi 3D wire me
