If you’re feeling brave why not break down the layers and effects, to find out how to create a soft shadow effect in After Effects, yourself!

Perfect for wedding, drama and vintage videos

To create a more traditional, elegant, typographic style it’s important to be restrained with your use of effects – less is more. A subtle soft shadow technique allows for a distinctly understated result. A far cry from the brash 3D text and elaborate, kinetic movement used in marketing-led productions, this technique is more suited to thoughtful, gentle communication.

Looking for a fantastic template in this style?

We use this soft shadow technique in our amazing Complete Traditional Wedding Pack template.
