  2. 2. INTRO Ultimate Contact Sheet Slideshow After Effects Template Display your beautiful photography with the Ultimate Contact Sheet template- the stylish and modern de- sign is perfect for any project- wedding, fashion, corpo- rate, or everyday life! Each of the 50 photos is it’s own animated scene so you can easily edit the timeline to use just what you need. Every animated photo scene can easily be switched from landscape to portrait orientation- that’s TWO dif- ferent animations in one scene! Just turn on the cam- era layer you need- Landscape or Portrait- and the tem- plate does all of the work for you. The Blur & Focus camera effects are on a single layer that can be turned off or moved in the timeline- no keyframes to mess with! Customize the length of the 4 video scenes by moving ONE layer marker! Select your ‘freeze frame’ for the end of the video then move your layer marker to the place in the timeline you ‘d like the video to stop playing. Easy to customize and update if you need to swap out a photo- simply check a box to display the numbered labels for all photos so you can easily find and replace images.
