Free After Effects Template #3 : 2D Earth Animation

Here is my 3rd free After Effects Template. It’s a small ‘trendy 2D’ earth animation from a project i’m working on. You can use it for different purposes, for example as background for your titles or part of a longer 2D animation. Anyway, I had a lot of fun making this and I hope you’ll like it. I also put easy color controls so you can change all the colors with ease. Have fun !

Click here to download the template. (versions AE CS6, CC12 and CC2014)

Oh and one more thing… If you liked it please don’t forget to follow us on twitter, facebook and pinterest or just comment below.  Thanks!

    World map is from parallel universe I guess… There’s no Turkey or Black Sea on it.

    • The world map is cartoony and simplified, there might be a few countries/islands missing, sorry about that. You can easily change the world map if you want in the AE file

    What application do you recommend downloading this to? This was exactly what I was looking for to use in a commercial but cannot figure out the right application to download it to, in order to be able to use it.
