[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]So at today’s exchange rate that’s £9.82 or as I like to call it Cheap as Chips and I hope you’ll agree it isn’t too shabby.

If you’re starting your own YouTube channel what could be better than a nice opener or maybe a clip to close your videos which displays your important details as the last thing the visitor sees.

The video explains the process and I’ll list the steps below.[/vc_column_text]

Visit Video Hive (part of Envato Market) and I’d sugest starting with a search in the After Effects Project Files – Openers.

Add a very broad term in the search bar and see if anything looks like it would fit with your company/organisation or your style.

  1. Select your video opener
  2. Purchase and download the file
  3. Download Adobe After Effects 30 day Trial
  4. Read and if possible print off help files
  5. Open .aep file
  6. Edit text and logo
  7. Render your new video
  8. Test the output.
If the video is set up correctly and you have the details it’s worth changing some of the elements within the video to match your colour scheme.

In the sample I changed the colour of the porthole and the flash to match the colours in my logo.

The file cost $14 or £10 and Adobe After Effects can be downloaded for a 30-day free trial.

If I was to make that opener for a client I would expect to charge about £200 and it should take no more than a day and a half.

Contact me for details.
