2. 3D Text Box Animation Pack

This project helps you combine a three dimensional effect with with your own video footage or still images. I like this pick for its mix of lower thirds, titles, and general text overlays that will be animated on top of a 3D box as the backdrop.

With a high gloss look, this animation is an easy way to create a bold statement with your own text.

6. 3D Text Shapes Logo Reveal

One of my favorite things about this project is that it combines a logo animation with a 3D text animation. Simply add your own logo and your choice of text and see them both come to life with some serious depth in this project.

7. Wave 3D Logo & Text

Short and sweet, this animation would perfectly for the introduction to your video project. It's another great selection for pre-rolls that should include logo and text selections, and both are easy to customize. Again, the power of these projects is the ability to drop in flat assets and see them come to life in 3D.

8. Bold Titles

This animation project is a great addition to this selection for its groovy animation style. These retro effects are perfect for bringing your text onto a canvas in a way that will catch your viewer's attention. Whether you use these for a lower thirds, title intro, or overlay, the animation style is really a unique way to animate text with depth.
