Top Free Premiere Pro Templates

Depending on your video project, you may not have the need or the budget to invest in Premiere Pro templates. If you’re just starting out or testing out a new video style, free Premiere Pro templates are a great way to go.

Mixkit has 100s of beautifully designed free titles and graphics for your Premiere Pro projects. And if you need more options, you can subscribe to Envato Elements for unlimited premium Premiere Pro templates along with other creative assets.

What is Premiere Pro?

Video editing app Adobe Premiere Pro has become a mainstay of the video designer’s toolbox – complete with all the features you need, including a clip editor, color correction functionality, audio programs and graphics software. And by taking advantage of some of the free video templates out there, you can make your video editing that little bit easier.

For day-to-day video editing, working with a tool like Premiere Pro gives designers the freedom to import video, audio and graphics and export new versions of video in high definition, in whatever format is needed for distribution. It’s quick to edit existing clips or edit audio within your video, add transitions between clips or polish existing content.

Premiere Pro is used by beginners (if you’re a newbie, check out this free Premiere Pro video course to get started) and veterans alike, and Premiere Pro templates can be a quick and easy way to produce your videos and keep a video series sharp and consistent.

Premiere Pro Templates

With this in mind, a stock library like Mixkit is an easy stop – featuring a range of stock video clips and stock music, as well as free video templates like Premiere Pro title templates.

For many more (millions) of assets to play with, the Envato Elements library also features ready-to-use graphics, photos, audio and video templates (including for Premiere Pro) through a monthly or annual subscription. There’s more on this later, but first, here are some of the top free Premiere Pro templates available to download from Mixkit.

Free Premiere Pro Openers

Drawing on hip hop and street-style vibes, the Glitch Opener is fast paced and dynamic. It’s perfect for building energy and emotion in video, and is especially suited to product launches or events promo content.

This super easy-to-use template in black and white features animated text and 20+ fast title changes – making it versatile and adjustable for both short and lengthier opening sequences.

In this template you can feel the old-school magazine influence, and the slightly cut-and-paste, collage effect is balanced with dynamic movement – coming together for an up-beat opener template, which comes with a mix of solid and moving background frames.

Paying tribute to the liquid animation video trend we’ve seen popping up in video, social and web in the first few months of 2020, this opener features smooth transitions between frames overlaid with impactful text. The subtle colors make for a seamless flow, and the stylish finish of the template makes it a great choice for fashion or lifestyle campaigns.

Free Premiere Pro Transitions

Ideal for a range of projects – think fun, active and outdoors themes – this Premiere Pro transition template is clean and fast-paced. With a young feel and a nature-meets-grunge aesthetic, this adaptable transition can fit a wide array of needs and work with various audio.

This simple template uses an inwards zoom with an edge blur effect, for a subtle but effective transition between clips. If you’re editing together a lot of different content or working on a longer video with a layered storyline, this is a great, paired-back option.

In a similar vein, this simple but impactful digital distortion provides an easy way to break up a series of clips – especially similar content – and also gives a playful ‘90s VHS vibe.

Free Premiere Pro Titles

With big, bold text, this template delivers high impact for projects with a strong tagline, with room for a header and subheader. Interspersed throughout your video, it can also be used for incorporating punchy quotes or breakout text – easy for everything from vox pop quotes on product endorsements to aspirational brand persona snippets.

Premium Premiere Pro Templates

If you know you’ll be looking to use a range of templates or combine templates together in your projects, it’s worth also exploring the Envato Elements video template library, which houses more than 2000 Premiere Pro templates. A few of our favorite premium templates include:

9. Dubstep Glitch Logo by Zorrin

For logo reveals, Dubstep Glitch Logo’s is one of the best. With a fresh and energetic sound and visual combination, it's both easy to customize and user friendly. You can drop the logo straight in, editing text and colours, making for quick and easy general brand or product and events promotion.

10. Creative Titles Package for Premiere Pro by motionshape

For titles, this Creative Titles Package is a handy one to have in your design kit – with 19 titles, 5 background patterns and 5 colour palette, all which can be used separately for unique looks. The modern design is simple and clean, using a minimalist approach to backgrounds and text, to make sure your own content is highlighted.

11. Clean Lower Thirds Pack by minimalmovie

Lower thirds, the phrase for describing a graphic overlay (often text) in the lower area of a screen, are a really handy way to introduce people or multiple elements or products. This pack features a suite of different styles, which work great for project presentations – and especially distribution across YouTube channels or company blogs.

12. Modern Broadcast Pack by ae-rocket

This package has everything you need in a one-stop broadcast pick up, and includes an opening sequence, news headlines, title and title animation, and lower thirds designs. It has a dynamic and colorful feel, but is perfectly suited to corporate video.
