How to create lower thirds in Adobe After Effects

Lower thirds are always in huge demand. Knowing how to create them is an essential skill of every videographer and motion designer.

In today’s tutorial, we are going to create a clean and minimalistic lower thirds design in Adobe After Effects. I choose to create simple and minimal animation for a reason. I want to focus your attention on two major steps of almost every lower third’s design:

  1. Creation of the Track Matte for text
  2. Creation of the color control to provide the most convenient way for client to choose colors for the template
