Features

Made with drag-and-drop simplicity and the ability to quickly adjust your message box size, color and opacity, Text Message Kit gives you the flexibility to design your messages exactly how you want them.

Take your text messages to the next level and create your own message design. Easily add 3D depth to any messages, as well as a subtle overshoot when your images animate in – it’s the little details that really make the final results stand out.

It’s a really great kit to use. So easy to customize, user friendly. I used it for a short film, and I had like 150 text messages to make. Would’ve been impossible without this! Huuuuge thanks, and I would recommand 100% to anyone who needs to add visually appealing text messages in their projetcs. Thanks again!

A simple and elegant template, very easy to customize once you get used to the controls (or immediately if more familiar with After Effects). The video tutorials demonstrating ideal workflows were great. Thomas, thanks also for replying so quickly to my emails! That really helped. This was well worth the money.

Amazing, you have my 5 stars !

I find it very easy to use and the tutorials included were very helpful. I emailed the author to ask for a recommendation to preview the composition faster, and he replied fast and was able to help me.

This template is taking you by the hand and showing you every detail you can change, it’s easy & flexible perfect for the newbs 😉
