Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves

With the Falling Leaves template, anyone can create custom leaf animations in Adobe After Effects. Leaves can follow a 3D motion path, making it easy to animate leaves blowing in swirls, or around 3D titles. Just drop a leaf image into the comp, then choose from 10 finished leaf animation presets. The presets can be customized with easy-to-use controls.

Included is an image library with a variety of leaves, flower petals, or dandelion seeds. Or, you can use your own leaf image. The leaves will realistically sway, fold, and spin in 3D as they fall or blow in the wind. Use them as autumn-themed transition effects, in your motion designs, or composite them with footage.

    • Compatible with Adobe After Effects CC 2019 (16.0), and all later versions. Works on both Mac or PC. No plugins required.
    • The main comps in this template are HD (1920x1080). You can change the resolution of the comp to 4K or other resolutions, and the effect will work the same. You may need to adjust the resolution of solid layers as well. The included leaf images range from 800 to 1300 pixels vertically.
    • The ten animations in the demo video are included as presets. Backgrounds are not included.
    • This template has been "universalized", meaning it will work in After Effects running in other languages.
    • The included leaf images are taken from and are released under the Creative Commons license, which allows for both non-commercial and commercial use, no attribution required.

    The Falling Leaves 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 insert their footage and make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CC 2019 (16.0) as well as all later versions of After Effects.

    Because the Falling Leaves template contains copyrighted intellectual property, the sharing or online posting of project files with or for anyone other than a client is prohibited. See the Terms and Conditions for more details.
