When you need to produce a video for your business, where do you start? Adobe After Effects is one of the best animation apps, but it takes time to learn.
Instead of learning a new program, you can use a template: simply drop in your own logo and information. In this round-up, check out professionally-designed After Effects projects from Envato Elements and Envato Market that you can use for your company's video, no complex animation skills required.
These templates are all easy to customize for your own use but, just in case, at the bottom of this page you'll also find a tutorial on how to use one.
6 Top After Effects Templates for Business from Envato Elements (Unlimited Downloads)
Envato Elements is all-you-can-download library for creatives. On Elements, you can download everything for a single flat rate.

Let's see three of the best corporate After Effects templates on Envato Elements.
Corporate Trend could work perfectly as an introduction to your growing company and the team behind it. Use the pre-built video assets that animate your team to life to introduce your next great idea.
Think of The One as an advanced PowerPoint template, but far more advanced than anything you could pull off in Microsoft's app. The assets and graphics in this package are ideal for supporting your speaking points.
Simple and straightforward, this After Effects template is ideal for your corporate video. It uses a mix of photos, graphics, and transitions to set the tone for a professional but punchy video. Replace the placeholders with your files to create a strong start.
Corporate logos should be simple and straightforward. This template helps you quickly show your logo as the front bumper to your corporate presentation. Just update the template with your logo, tweak the color effects to match, and you're on your way to a great corporate video.
Corporate slideshows are perfect for your next event. Use it to show photos of employees in action to set the tone for a presentation. It's ideal to display on a large screen at a networking event, for example.
You might be amazed by just how much typography can do all on its own. By mixing and matching text and charts, you can tell stories easily. Use it for a data-driven video that can show growth or future forecasts, for example.
