We’ve assembled a collection of sci-fi After Effects templates most likely to induce awe and wonder and tried to pick ones that show a wide range of visual styles.
2017 was a banner year for science fiction and its popularity is at an all-time high. As a genre, it’s no longer niche and is now entirely mainstream. TV shows like Black Mirror and Electric Dreams play into contemporary culture’s technological issues and fixations. And movies like Blade Runner 2049 and the Last Jedi are like futuristic allegories for our time.
The science fiction aesthetic is so diverse and creatives working with the genre have a lot to explore. Some geek out to sci-fi with iridescent aliens, transforming spaceships, glowing technological interfaces, shimmery star fields or dark and dystopian landscapes.
Motion graphic designers working in After Effects, in particular, really know their sci-fi stuff. On Envato, the science fiction inspired templates are entirely epic, and in addition to just being so eye-mazing, they also demonstrate a high level of technical wizardry on the part of their authors.
We’ve assembled a collection of sci-fi After Effects templates most likely to induce awe and wonder and tried to pick ones that show a wide range in visual style too. These templates would work for a variety of project types like movie trailers, presentation introductions, transition sequences, and as clips in music videos.
Now go grab the popcorn (or light saber) and get ready to explore new worlds with this list of Science Fiction After Effects templates.
Dreamland is a cinematic film title sequence that’s like an epic journey through the Milky Way and nebulae. Like a passenger in Tesla’s car, the viewer is propelled through strange new celestial lands. The sequence has nuanced and rich color and the animation is quite smooth. Dreamland is accompanied by a grand score by talented composer Jeffrey Peterson. The project includes a pre-render version and original version and is in both 4K and Full HD.
Can a sci-fi intro be luxury? Epic Galaxy Titles appears so. Filaments of liquid gold rain out on a dark charcoal space backdrop. Epic Galaxy Titles also has a retro vibe and seems a bit 90s. The sequence has some interesting pacing tricks too, with variable time rates and some glitch effects.
The HUD Cinematic Titles take you on a tour of a smartly designed futuristic interface. The interface is nicely colored in bright red and blue and the interface is clean and modern. The HUD cinematic titles don’t overdo the sci-fi aesthetic and would be a good choice for a quality title sequence. The HUD Cinematic Titles are in HD and require no additional plugins.
