What is it?

Flourishes are decorative plant elements, which have been used in typography and design for centuries. The Growing Flourishes template for Adobe 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!

  • Drawable - Create new growing flourishes by drawing paths with the Pen tool.
