- Creation VHS Effects has been updated and upgraded! The current version is compatible with Adobe After Effects, versions CS5 and above (including CC). The original version of the template works with CS3 and CS4, and is included with your download. The original version has fewer effects and presets, and no "Global Intensity" control, but it still produces great results! (Watch the original's demo video).
- Works with both PCs and Macs. No plugins required.
- Effects are customized with slider controls, so it's easy to adjust the intensity of the damage. A single "Global Intensity" control affects the strength of all effects together.
- Noteworthy effects that are not seen in the demo videos include a fast-forward effect (with "chipmunk" audio), an interlaced video effect, and an old TV effect (your footage placed in a 70s TV - see image below).
- Comps are HD, 1920x1080.

The Creation VHS Effects 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 footage and make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.
