Animation is becoming a necessary part of the video production process. We've launched a category for Premiere Pro Templates. Here are some of the best.
Expectations on video content creators are rising.
It's no longer enough to have your content beautifully shot and edited. Increasingly, it's expected that it will include elements of animation.
These skills don't come naturally for everyone. But they're becoming a necessary part of sustaining viewer attention.
Vox videos are a great example of this done well.
Each one seamlessly blends footage with animations that emphasize the content.
Vox, like a lot of publications producing this style of video, have a team that works on this stuff. That’s not going to be the case for most video creators.
So, with animated titles and graphics becoming more of a standard, what should you do?
For a long time there have been After Effects templates. These work well, but for filmmakers the program can be daunting to use. It also means you'll be going back and forth between your editing program and After Effects for each animation.
These are issues Adobe is attempting to solve.
The company recently announced a new file format called Motion Graphics Templates. These allow you to edit a graphic template entirely within Premiere Pro, Adobe's popular film editing program. Meaning, it's now a lot easy for filmmakers to include animation in their projects.
To give you a taste of it, here's our list of some of the best.
