Templates are an excellent way to give a production an immediate look or style without the effort of having to build the composition yourself. If you work out their price in relation to how much time it would take you to make a similar template, you can see they are excellent value for money. Colours, elements and the animation can be changed to fit logos or match company branding.
We will publish details of other Motion template libraries when we find them, but it looks like these guys have a pretty good head start over everybody. Huge thanks for offering up the prizes too.
