Can I Edit Bursts?

Yes. BurstBox makes it very easy to customize each burst animation after it's created.
BurstBox makes each burst animation a precomp. Simply open it up and change contents easily.


Can I Add My Own Bursts?

Unfortunately not. But you can easily customize the animations after BurstBox makes them.
You can also contact me on LinkedIn or Twitter about possibly including your burst in the next release of BurstBox.


Can I Try It?

Yes! Use BurstBox for 7 days.
No end of trial period payment traps :)

Try it out for free & add some extra pop to your next project!


Is BurstBox Worth It?

BurstBox is a great tool for adding production value quickly.
Before BurstBox, the time it took to create bursts often wasn't worth the bang for buck.
It's nice to add pop animations in a second when I want them. 

And of course, it's extremely useful on projects like the promo video shown above ;)
If you're unsure if BurstBox is for you, give it try for free!
