Abstract effects for video serve a number of purposes. They're perfect if you need to keep your style quite generic but still want to add visual interest. Depending on the abstract style you choose, they can make a project look edgier or more fun... abstract creates so many possibilities. 

Here are ten of our favourite After Effects templates with abstract effects. To make it easier for you to find what you want, we've broken the list down into template types like logos, title sequences and more.
