Create Animated Titles for Wedding Videos in After Effects
Learn how to design wedding titles for highlight reels in Adobe After Effects.
Weddings are perhaps one of the most stressful projects to shoot. There are more than enough key moments a video producer must worry about when shooting: the ceremony, the toast, the first dance, the cake cutting, and so much more. With a few of these in mind, the last thing a wedding producer is thinking about is usually the titles for the highlight reel.
However, you should take every aspect of your final project into account if you want to create a high-quality product. While, After Effects is typically not involved in wedding video production, there is still a great opportunity to create amazing wedding titles for your clients.
