Create with Premiere Pro Text Templates

From unfolding word-by-word text to text message pop-ups, animated text is everywhere. And it’s not as hard as you might think to incorporate this into your own video content, especially with the help of Premiere Pro text templates.

In a library like Envato Elements, you’ll find everything from simple, dynamic openers to 1980s inspired light distortions, and motion styles reminiscent of VHS and video games. Text effect options are really limitless and can convey a lot in a little – imbuing your text with emotions or connotations so the words themselves don’t have to.

When you need text templates offering a little more sophistication than free collections offer, there are hundreds of templates for Premiere Pro available with your monthly or annual subscription.

What Are Text Templates?

Premiere Pro text templates are pre-designed motion graphic files that can present your text in dynamic and exciting ways. Text templates are fully customizable—once you find something you like, you can replace the text, change the font, tweak the color palette, and update the animations to suit your brand or project.

Text templates can help video editors of all skill levels save time in production. Whether you’re looking for a clean lower third template to introduce a character, a motion graphic template to experiment with fast typography, or a compelling closing sequence, text templates will help you provide context and set the scene with ease.

What Is Fast Typography?

This trend harnesses the phenomenon of speed reading. So, how can you use fast typography in your own designs?

Fast typography continues to dominate video trends. In a climate where consumers are inundated with content, fast typography draws on audiences’ tendency to speed read and feeds the viewer words in a captivating way. Basically, this means displaying text word-by-word, or in small groups, where you can control the pace of reading by adjusting the speed.

It’s no surprise that video is the perfect place for this trend, and the need to match fast typography to the pace and style of video content has meant a boom in Premiere Pro templates to help you do just that. Whether you’re after a big impact, a sweeping ethereal feel, or kaleidoscope colors, you’ll find loads of ways to use fast typography.
