Grunge Effects

Grunge Effects

The Grunge Effects template for After Effects converts your video footage into a stylized collage of dirty textures. The end result is an animated work of art with a grunge flavor. It's a unique and striking look that is sure to make an impression in your videos.

Included are five customizable presets, So you can just drop in your footage and render. Or, easily create your own filthy grunge effect by choosing textures from the included texture libary, or by using your own photos. All effects can be customized with easy-to-use controls.

    • Compatible with Adobe After Effects, versions CS5 and all later versions (including Creative Cloud). Works on both Mac and PC. No plugins required. (CS5 and CS6 users will notice a label on all customization controls that says "Missing". This does not affect functionality, and the controls will work as intended).
    • This template has been universalized, so it will work for users running After Effects in other languages, as long as they're using CS6 and up. The template may partially work in foreign languages in CS5, but with some errors.
    • Two versions of the template are included: HD (1920x1080) and 4K (4096x2160). The effects work great on photos, text, and graphics with transparent backgrounds, but it is not designed for exporting images at a higher resolution than 4096x2160.
    • The grunge effect comps in this template are 10 frames per second, giving them the choppy stop-motion look seen in the demo video. The reduced frame rate also speeds up render times considerably. You can change the frame rate in the "Composition Settings" panel, or if you like the look of a reduced frame rate, but need to export at a higher rate like 29.97fps or 25fps, create a new comp with the higher frame rate, and place the pencil sketch effect comp into that one.
    • Follow the suggestions on the Render Tips Page to optimize the speed of this template.
    • Music and footage placeholders in demo video are not included.
    • The file size is 353 MB. Please allow plenty of time when downloading the file.


    The Grunge Effects 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 CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.

    Because the Grunge Effects template contains copyrighted intellectual property in the form of its code and textures, 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.
