Hi there! My name is De Hann Ballesteros and welcome to my After Effects Templates site!

How I Got Started With Video Editing

After 10 years of experience creating videos, from Macromedia Flash, Adobe After Effects CS3 to CC, thought it might be cool to share some of my new AE projects files with you.

Originally I started out in Fine Arts, majored in painting, but soon realized that video editing was way more fun! Inspired by AndrewΒ Kramer (my AE Guru) and Gideon Shalwick (Online Video Blogging Expert) I decided to launch this blog to help AE enthusiast maximize their time and talent.

These Free After Effects templates are designed for you to just add your text, pictures, video clips, and render! As you already know video editing is a very time consuming process. So to help you save hours in key framing, conceptualizing, and installing needed plugins, these free AE templates will help you deliver cool video intros. These premade video intros are 100% royalty free license that allows you to useΒ these template in all types of productions, for worldwideΒ distribution, forever. There are never any licensing fees.

Currently I work from home. You can hire me for custom intros or other video projects via Upwork here.

    Hello De Hann,

    I’m never one to post comments, I’m more of the observer but I coming across your site and your videos on Youtube I just had to say THANK YOU so much for being so generous and allowing us, the world, to use your templates for free. Especially when most of us don’t have the skills to do what you do.

    Thank you so much for making and posting all these templates for free! I’m about to download one of your AE templates and already excited to see the finished results.

    You’re really the best, if there was an award we’d vote for you!!!!

    Thank you and stay blessed kind person πŸ™‚

    Don’t spam me with my email but i need to know how to input my words into the video, it looks cool and all, but when i download it or am about to it doesn’t have an area where i can insert names and stuff.

    • de@coolvideointro.com says:

      No worries, I hate spam too, I think most of the templates have help videos in the description area. πŸ™‚ or perhaps let me know what template doesn’t have one. Thanks!

  15. Jay White says:

    how much do you charge per custom after effects lyric video?

  16. Jack says:

    Love ur stuff, but i tot it is somethin easy like key in, click and pay ….

    I only know how to edit easy video using cyberlink power director. Im interested to use 2 of templates of yours as my video intro.

    Displacements – first 4 seconds intro
    Crazy particles – 6 seconds

    Anyway, Im a safety trainer. I plan to make video to educate workers to concern about safety and health.

    If it possible u make it for me and send me in video files, i wish to pay for it. Can you tell me the price.
