15 Top Particle Effects Project Templates for Adobe After Effects (2018)

Electric and Eclectic: Particle Effects Projects for After Effects

The particle effect has a futuristic feel—tiny granules move and interact together to form an animation. These effects would feel right at home on the silver screen, but you can create them with Adobe After Effects on your own computer!

In this round-up, I’m sharing 15 projects that you can use to create this effect with your own logo and assets. Each of these projects gives you a big head start. Even if you don’t know animation, you can use these to create the effect easily.

Here are 15 of my favorite particle effect templates for Adobe After Effects:

1. Particle Transform — Image Animation Project
