The Butterflies template for After Effects includes seven 3D butterflies that you can animate. Each butterfly is pre-programmed to fly and behave like a real butterfly - all you need to do is tell it where to go!
This realistic, custom effect is perfect for enhancing your motion graphics and 3D scenes. By simply adding two position keyframes to your butterfly, it will randomly flap its wings, glide, twist, dip, and climb as it follows the 2D or 3D motion path. Customize the flight behavior using convenient slider controls. Then, when you're ready to land your butterfly, you can turn off the automatic wing flapping and give it slower, controlled wing flutters.
Compatible with Adobe After Effects, versions CS5 and all later versions (included Creative Cloud). Works with both Mac and PC. No plug-ins required.
Music in preview video not included.
Comps are full HD, 1920x1080. Each butterfly wing is 1080 pixels tall at 100% scale.
This template includes 7 species of butterfly, which you can animate in three dimensions in After Effects. Detailed instructions can be found in the template.
This template has been "universalized", so it will work in After Effects running in any language.
The Butterflies template is not a plugin. It's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because the work is already done and the user needs only to insert their content and make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.
