Analog Vu-Meter

Specs: 1920 x 1080 px, 40 kb
Expressions: universalised
Plugins: none

Synch this template with any audio file you throw at it within minutes. Left and right channels are supported separately. The expression controlled color management will help you to apply an individual styling. Import an image or video file and use it as background and if the peak doesn’t light up strong enough you can use an easy-to-use slider to amplify the signal. Use this template to add a cool 80’ies look to your next music video.

Download and customisation is available for a reasonable price and there are no additional royalty restrictions. You can use the template in whatever project you like, private or commercial. I only ask you to not resell or redistribute the template. If you would like to further support me, you can like, subscribe or follow me on my various social network accounts.


The customisation is fairly easy. Once you have opened the template in After Effects, you simply switch to the “AUDIO” comp and drag your audio file into its timeline. Back in the main comp, select the “AUDIO” layer and convert it to keyframes (“Right Mouse Button – Keyframe Assistant – Convert Audio to Keyframes”). All expression controls will automatically adapt to this conversion. Finally you can select the settings layers to make additional adjustments.

If you are unexperienced with After Effects, you might consider to order the template including the 1-hour personal training. If you are not sure about the compatibility with your After Effects version, feel free to send me a message to make sure that this is the right template for your needs. I am happy to help where I can.
