  3. Use only A-Z, 0-9, hyphens, and underscores for file/comp/asset names


  • No 3rd party effects/plugins

Maximum of 50 different style comps:

  1. Less is preferred
  2. Do not cross categories in a single template (Ex: A broadcast pack with title, transition, and lower thirds)
  3. Cross-resolution in a single template is allowed only if the same style is represented between several resolutions (Ex: A template with the same style in HD, square, vertical, and 4k)

Please note: Multiple resolutions of the same style count towards the maximum of 50


  • Do not use real personal names, Adobe, Adobe Apps, or other brand names in Project Panel, or text.


1. All assets must be created by the artist

  • Do not use copyrighted logos, licensed stock content, and/or free/CC0/public domain content

3. No audio

4. Media must be linked and not missing when opened
