15 Awesome Analogue Templates for Adobe After Effects

Who knew that so soon after the (almost) death of analogue, we'd be desperate to reproduce its most charming quirks, digitally. We miss the glitching, the fuzzy lines and the questionable colouring. 

Fear not, analogue effects seeker; we've put together a list of Envato Market templates that will give you your pre-digital fix.

Analogue Emulation

1. The Ultimate Glitch Logo Intro

The Ultimate Glitch Logo Intro gives you a touch of old fashioned analogue distortion (think a bad signal’ which you can customise with your own logo or title.

5. Technicolor Process

This project is based on reproduction of the old Technicolor workflow and the main project doesn’t use any colour presets. The original footage is separated into individual colour channels and then processed steps identical to the original analogue process, in order to achieve the final, flexible result.
