Flourishes are decorative plant elements, which have been used in typography and design for centuries. The Growing Flourishes Collection template for After Effects brings these classic designs into the 21st century with a library of custom, "growing" flourish elements. These elements thicken and bend as they grow, and can be combined to create beautiful and intricate animations.
Also included are five finished title animations - simply plug in your text and they're ready to export. Or, build your own designs with the included vines, grasses, leaves, branches, and other elements featuring smooth, natural-looking growth. Best of all, they're completely customizable!

The Growing Flourishes Collection template is not a plugin, so there is nothing to install. 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 make their own customizations. This template is compatible with version CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.
