Best Lower Thirds Templates

If you're a video editor or creator, chances are that you rely heavily on lower thirds to communicate key information to your audience. Lower thirds templates have become a staple in any video toolkit, but it can be tricky to find the right lower thirds graphics for your project. Whether you need a lower third title for After Effects, Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro, we've curated a collection of the best lower thirds templates.

What Is a Lower Third?

Lower thirds are informative elements added to the lower area of a video. They’re designed to be visible, but not take away from the action of the video itself. They may seem like a simple ingredient, but used in the wrong way, lower thirds can be extremely misleading or confusing to viewers.

When used well, they can help your audience keep track of who is being interviewed on screen, or the theme or location of your segment. Lower thirds templates are typically comprised of typography, shapes, logos and colors as well as the size and position of elements and animation style.
