very professional! and nice colors
Very good work!
A good idea. Beautiful project. Good luck.
Cheers Slava, appreciate it.
Absolutely love this template Papacuppa even made it CS6 for me – Great Support thanks sooooo much!
Really nice Wish you many sales my friend!
Thanks byDimas, appreciated!
Is there anyway we can have the audio from the beginning minus the Envato?
I assume you mean the Envato logo in the intro sequence? If so, please watch this quick tutorial I created on changing placeholders – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrQw9hXXuzs
If you mean the Envato watermark in the audio track (http://audiojungle.net/item/determination/6832052), that is a separate purchase on the Envato marketplace.
If I misunderstood, let me know!
Other than that, happy holidays.
Hi I dont have trapcode… will it change much if I still want to buy?
All Trapcode sequences are prerendered so you won’t have any problems – no prompts for the plugin.
I had to state which plugins I’d used in the template when I first submitted it to VH. I can see why you’d assume it might be required though.
P.S. It was used for the atmosphere elements only.
Thanks! Downloading now….
Hi Again, I’m on cs6. there doesn’t seem to be a version for that in the download
Here’s the link for CS6 – https://www.dropbox.com/s/x2bmpldcpa4fkgz/corporate-retro-explainer-video-toolkit-CS6.zip?dl=0
For others reading:
This version is more popular than I thought so I’ll reupload the project to include CS6 within the next day or two.
Thanks for the speedy reply!
Nothing better to do right now.
I might edit out the link a little later because this is public. I’ll leave it up for a bit though. It’s just the executable file, not the project files, so just place in your complete template folder with the 12, 2014 and 2015 versions.
Any other problems, get in touch with me over at my website, 3dmybusiness.com / firstname.lastname@example.org
Worked perfectly! Love the template
Good to hear!
This is a great looking professional design. Not as “childish” as other explainer kits. Question: it says item “may not be property released”—are there elements that are owned or have copyright held by others?
Also—I assume all colors of icons/elements can be adjusted as desired?
Thanks for the compliment.
Knowing how strict VH are about licensing, I was extra careful when creating this template. Specifically, that’s the icons and photos you see in the promo video. Everything else is either created by me or can’t be licensed.
The project has a dedicated ‘licenses’ folder which goes into a little more detail than here, but to keep it brief:
1. FontAwesome icons
CC Attribution 3.0 Unported license: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
These clean icons are quite popular on the web exactly because the licensing is so lenient. One condition is that the creator receives attribution, which is very fair. (These are really popular in Themeforest themes!)
2. Pixabay.com photos
CC 0 license: https://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/deed.en
This website is a community-driven photo uploading platform. It’s set apart by the agreement to waive copyright upon upload. (This is actually one of my favourite sites!)
Let me know if you have any other questions as I know licensing can’t be a thorny issue.
Great. Thanks for the detailed response.
No probs! Sorry, yes, icons/elements can be edited as much or as little as you need. Some of the video tutorials walk through how best to use/edit the elements.
I’m getting an error opening the file. “After Effects error: File “w-large-dust-heavy.mov” cannot be opened, it may be an unsupported format. (86 :: 1)”
It happens on multiple .mov files in the project.
I have the latest QT installed so not sure what the issue is?
Hmm, this hasn’t been reported before but I have reuploaded the project a few times so perhaps those files were corrupted on the last upload.
Could you test these two sequences please via this temp DropBox link?
One is the default ‘w-large-dust-heavy.mov’ and the other is the same file converted in a relatively recent Quicktime player, ‘w-large-dust-heavy (Converted).mov’.
These both work fine on my machine. Depending on whether they work on your machine, we’ll troubleshoot further once they’ve been tested.
Let me know how you get on!
P.S. Perhaps test in the free VLC Player too, and also restart computer/AE.
Yes, both of those could be imported and opened. Here are all the files AE said couldn’t be opened, from the original project:
Ok VC, sorry for the trouble.
I’m uploading all the Atmosphere sequences to DropBox right now. It might take a little while I’m afraid, my internet is a bit slow where I am.
If you could send me a request email to email@example.com, I’ll send you the link when it’s ready.
Can I ask what software you use to unzip?
Thanks. Email sent. I used 7-Zip.
Replied! I’ll look into this more tomorrow but I might reupload the entire project, just to be safe.
can the some of the scenes be made longer or shorter in terms of duration?
Absolutely! Everything is editable in the template except the atmospheric scenes which are prerendered.
If you have a specific example, I can walk you through the steps if you’d like.
one last question, hows color editing? is it flexible to change colors of everything like background and icons and so on?
Please check out the following video tutorial on changing the background colour for this template:
Changing the colour of other elements will be easy once you’ve seen that video. If you’re worried about other functionality, there are about 15 short video tutorials that come with the item which should cover most of your questions.
hi, somehow i cant seems to download. is there a mirror link where i could download it from? dropbox link or google drive or something?
Thanks for the purchase! I’m not sure why you can’t download as I haven’t heard this issue from anyone else for this item. I think contacting Videohive is usually the way to go with this one.
If I can recommend anything it’s to avoid using the non-native file extractors like 7Zip/Winrar, but of course that’s once you have actually downloaded the file.
need help making some scenes longer. will need to display a hefty amount of text, and need the scene to be long enough for people to actually read the text.
[See included DropBox project for below instructions]
The simplest way to extend the video is to use time remapping on the top-level composition, where you have the ability to slow down the entire video, or just specific portions with keyframes. You can pre comp the entire top level by selecting all layers in the top comp [RENDER], right clicking and selecting pre comp. Then right clicking the new precomposed layer created, selecting Time > Enable Time Remapping.
You’ll see 2 keyframes appear, one at either end of your layer [currently 21 seconds long]. To extend the video by making it slower/easier to read, hit CMD/CTRL + K for composition settings, and extend the length of your video – e.g. 42 seconds to double the length of your video. Open out the timeline view and drag the second keyframe to the end, as well as extending the layer which finishes at 21 seconds still. This may not be the optimum speed for you, but it’s the workflow you can work with. Add additional keyframes for more granular control. [There are many YT tutorials that go into great depth about time remapping].
This also allows you to add more text to text pre comps and shrink/enlarge the text as needed. [See ‘Add Assets to Scene’ – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMGNB_o8Z0w&list=PLf6Rb-fKEql2CdR6Bt1GtKUgHCMVAkVu0&index=4
Alternatively, you can duplicate the same scenes in the project panel [CMD/CTRL+D on scene comps] and place them one after the other in your timeline. [See ‘Rearranging/Adding scenes’ – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRptZPhigQc&list=PLf6Rb-fKEql2CdR6Bt1GtKUgHCMVAkVu0&index=3]
Hope that helps!
Hope that helped. I’m taking the DropBox link down as I imagine you’ve accessed it by now.
It’s a worthy job, I wish a lot of good customers and excellent sales!
I purchased and downloaded this project; when opened it has hundreds of missing items (.png, .eps, .ai, etc). Did I forget to do something?
Howdy PeaGreen! Please make sure you unzip the template with native software, rather than 3rd parties like 7zip. This is generally the problem I’ve found with missing/corrupted files.
This upload version has been the same for many customers and problems haven’t been reported, but if you still have any issues, let me know and I’ll look into it for you.
Hey there Papacuppa!
Hmmm… I used Right Click > Extract All.
I opened up the CC2015 version; after your message I opened up the others to see if that made a difference… and I got the same result If I search for any of the files that are missing (for example “adjust4.eps”) they are not included in the download I opened.
Bleh. Sorry to be a bother, I see what you mean with no one else having this problem! Your help is GREATLY appreciated!!!!
No worries, we’ll get to the bottom of this!
I’ve just downloaded the same file from VideoHive and can find the icon you mentioned at the following path:
advanced-text-explainer-video-toolkit > LIBRARY > MEDIA (YELLOW) > ICONS > adjust.4.eps
Please see if you can follow that path. If the files aren’t there, I’d recommend a couple of things:
1. Try Right Click > Extract All Here (or other options that you haven’t yet tried).
2. If that doesn’t work, try downloading another piece of free unzipping software, perhaps Winzip for Windows, or Archive Utility for Mac (which I just used and confirmed works).
Huzzah! That did it, I just needed to re-extract it all. I probably bumped a hotkey that stopped the process the first time around Derp on me. Thank you so much for the fast response time and your help!!
Super project! I wish further promotion and more sales!
