3D Flag

3D Flag

The 3D Flag template allows users to create custom, 3D flag animations in Adobe After Effects - no plugins needed!


Just drop in an image or video to convert it to a fabric flag waving in the wind, with 3D ripples and a 3D flagpole. The flag’s movement in the wind is customizable using convenient slider controls. You can go with the default settings and save time, or animate complex flag movements. Easily adjust the speed and shape of the ripples to simulate different flag sizes or wind speeds. Choose from multiple country flags, flagpoles, fabric textures, and sound effects - it’s all included!

    • This template is compatible with Adobe After Effects (v.17.0 and all later versions). Works on both PCs and Macs. No plugins required.
    • The template offers three different flag resolutions to choose from: 1000x500 pixels, 2000x1000 pixels, and 4000x2000 pixels. The widths of these flags can be adjusted, but the heights are fixed. The main comps are 1920x1080 by default, but the comps can be changed to any resolution or frame rate, and the effect will work the same.
    • Footage and music in demo video not included. All included images and sound effects are public domain, and can be used for commercial and noncommercial purposes, no attribution required. Sources:,,
    • This template has been "universalized", so it will work in After Effects running in any language.

    The 3D Flag template is not a plugin, so there is nothing to install. Rather, it's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because most of the work is already done and the user needs only to make their own customizations. This template is compatible with version 2020 (17.0) as well as all later versions of After Effects.

The animations you create with this product are yours and can be used for commercial purposes, but the sharing or online posting of project files with or for anyone other than a client is prohibited.
