I'm trying to put together a library of 'clips' and/or 'effects' to use in some upcoming training videos I am developing. Is there a 'best practices' that includes making each effect into a composition? Or are 'best practices' usually individually developed and there really isn't any such thing for After Effects.
My effects are things like:
- templated layouts
- Specific lower thirds fonts and colors
- outlines that draw themselves
- text blocks that swoop in and settle that can have their text updated per video
- color palettes or swatches
- intro videos
I am trying to reduce repetition. I could create these effects each video, but I would like to create an effect ( i.e., text block swooping in at angle x and changing color at arrival ) and then replace JUST the text each video so that the effect becomes something the viewer recognizes as part of my training series.
