A simple to use After Effects music promo template!
Facebook has just started allow videos to reach far more people than any other kind of post. That was the driving force for this template. It is simple to use, quick to change, fast to render, and sleek in design.
It features a turn table that spins. The record arm moves across the vinyl slowly, but normally. There is editable text with a drop shadow on the back wall. Also, a smooth modern lower third graphic for the artist’s name and track title.
When changing the one piece of album art both the record sleeve and the art on the vinyl auto populate. Standard art size is 1000 x 1000 or 500 x 500. This template is looking for the latter. It is extremely simple to scale anything larger though.
The project file has the original (and better) template that uses Mojo and a better drop shadow for the writing on the wall. If you want to do something similar I suggest watching this tutorial on drop shadows to get an idea of how to go about it.
However, there is a second template included that uses no third party plugs and an easily manipulated back wall text.
