Helpful Tips on How to Use Templates
Here are some of our top tips for using templates:
- Templates are great as a starting point, but make sure to play around and tweak parameters to suit your project, creating something new that's fresh and exciting.
- Start with templates that don't require plug-ins. You'll find that with small steps you'll be getting the hang of it.
- Many template downloads come with a tutorial. It's fun to jump in head first and figure things out on your own, but ultimately these tutorials will save you time.
- If you're using many different templates across different projects, remember to be organized and keep them in relevant, well-labelled folders.
- Before jumping in to your project, try playing around with the template. Make a no-pressure test project to learn the ins and outs of the template before you have to produce your final project.
Have fun building new projects using these wonderfully built templates and building up your existing NLE tool-kit.
