Premiere Pro Essential Graphics Templates

Motion graphics can help communicate complex ideas with ease. While in the past you may have had to brush up on your After Effects skills before executing this kind of content, the Premiere Pro Essential Graphics panel has made life much easier—using templates, you can now edit and customize motion graphics using Premiere Pro. 

Whether you’re creating giant typography for a brand video on social media, glitch titles for a dramatic film opening, or clean and minimal lower thirds for a documentary, there are hundreds of professionally designed Premiere Pro templates to choose from on Envato Elements. Sign up for a monthly or annual subscription today and you can experiment with as many as you like.

What Are Essential Graphics Templates?

Motion graphics are a type of animation, generally referring to the text-based parts of your video project. You’ll likely use motion graphics for your intros, lower thirds, and title sequences—or even just to bring to life basic infographics. Learn more about how to use Motion Graphics templates.

Like motion graphics templates, essential graphics templates use the file extension .mogrt and can be imported into Premiere Pro and customized through the Essential Graphics Panel. This panel allows you to work directly with pre-made templates composed in After Effects so you don’t have to jump between the two programs unnecessarily. Once a template has been imported, individual elements can be customized with an in-built control panel, rather than opening After Effects to edit.
