Heatwave Titles is a free After Effects template that can be used to create super hot titles and intros for your video projects.

Heatwave Titles is a free After Effects template that features 7 editable text placeholders. It uses the After Effects built-in Fractal Noise settings to generate the heat waves effect.

The MAIN COMP contains 7 text layers. However, you can also increase the text layers by simply duplicating one and moving it forward.

Editing the text layers is very easy. Just double-click on a layer and type your own text to replace the default one.

How To Edit Text

You can also change the size of the text. Just select a text layer, and hit S on the keyboard to bring up the scale settings. Then increase or decrease the scale value to change the text size.

You can further customize the template by changing the background color. To do that, open the Background Comp, select the Background Tint layer, and go into Effects > Effects Control, or use keyboard shortcut F3 to open the effects control settings.

Under Tint settings, change the ‘Map White To’ settings to any color of your choice.
