It’s perfect for opening logo reveal and very useful footages.


I really enjoy this time of year and making Christmas greetings templates, so first of all thank you for this opportunity to get featured on Videohive.

For the After Effects template I want to nominate this one:

I think that particle animation (magic) in this template is nicely done, with beautiful ambience, smooth camera movement and with a little cinematic touch. It represents the magical spirit of Christmas in a very nice way and it can be very useful and easy to edit Christmas Greeting video card.

For the Stock Footage:

After checking a really lot of them, this one really stand out by my opinion. Cool idea and very well executed stop motion shot with nice details.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
