12 Celestial Bodies

Individual comps containing the earth, moon, sun, galaxy, solar system, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter (with Europa), Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Each planet has a custom atmosphere, and each comp features a sun and star background.

Easy Customization

Customize your scene with easy-to-use slider controls. Adjust your planet’s size, tilt, rotation speed, rings, atmosphere, and lighting. Choose from multiple star, nebula, or galaxy backgrounds.

Camera & Light Interaction

Pre-programmed lighting allows for camera and light interaction like a true 3D program. Change the 3D position of your sun, and the light and shadows on your planet adjusts accordingly. Likewise, orbit your camera around, and the lighting updates realistically.

Lens Flares

Five beautiful, customizable lens flares, taken from the Creation Lens Flares template. Attach a lens flare to your sun, and customize it using slider controls. The lens flares are great tools that you can use for many projects to come.

Custom Title Animations

Six animations featuring 3D text, displayed throughout the solar system (as seen in the preview video). A 7th comp combines all the title animations into one seamless 50-second animation. Customizing the titles is a snap.

Finished Space Animations

15 additional comps covering the individual celestial bodies. These comps are ready-to-export, complete with camera motion, lens flares, and unique backgrounds. Every animation from the demo video is included. It’s 15 stock footage clips for the price of one!

360° star background, high-res space photos, and space music (from preview video) also included!

The Space Effects Collection 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 make their own adjustments, then render. This template is compatible with version CS3 as well as all later versions of After Effects.
