This AE project is mind blowing! The look and feel of the pop-up book shows high quality work has gone into creating this template. I could watch this animation over and over again! Very easy to use in AE with great tutorial support. The author Thomas is quick to answer any questions you may have. I would highly recommend purchasing this project and any other work produced by Thomas.

Incredible detail, customizability, ease of use, support and a quality, beautiful output at the end of it. Will definitely use for other projects. Thanks so much, an absolute bargain for what you get.
