Festive Storybook Opening – Overview

Once upon a time there was an enchanting, festive storybook intro for your video production!

Quickly and easily give your Christmas production a fairy tale introduction and ending with these charming, rustic transitions. The 3D storybook, with editable text, opens to reveal your video footage and then closes at the end to perfectly round-off your sequence.

The aged wood and antique lamp give the scene a Gothic appearance as the flickering, atmospheric candlelight evokes warm and cosy fireside storytelling. Perfect for those cold winter nights, just add the mulled wine!

Where could I use this?

Perhaps this would be perfect for a school nativity play, winter wedding video, or even photos of a magical vacation.

The project is set up to hold up to 5 minutes of video, though this can be extended very easily.
