Branding videos on YouTube is important as interested viewers will come back for more and they will look for you, which is actually your brand. This is essential for building a large subscribed audience for your YouTube channel.
One way to produce such branding animation is to hire a professional motion graphic freelancer and let him do the magic with your logos and slogans. This is great if your budget is not limited to few dollars. However majority of people that just starting to implement an idea and creating YouTube content without any income don’t have much money to spend hiring motion graphic designers. These people should consider the budget way of producing branding intro animation.
The budget option is to buy a template with a logo branding animation for After Effects and hire a freelancer to render this template with your texts and logos. You can also download a 30 days trial After Effects software and do the template modifications yourself. If you are happy with the animation of your template, very little knowledge of After Effects is required to change just the text and images inside of the template. There are plenty of great tutorials you can find on the Internet to get familiar with this great software. Some of the templates come with brief tutorials as well but could cost a bit more.
Here is a sample of a simple, elegant and short After Effects template for your branding video animation. This template is synced to a logo soundtrack so you can choose to purchase the soundtrack as well as the template and put it all together. Soundtrack link is available in the description of the intro branding template page. Template is available for download at Pond5.com.
