Making video effects from scratch can be time consuming and technically difficult. Using a professionally made template is a great way to create something bespoke. The project file is your starting point and you can make adjustments to suit your video needs.
Premiere Pro video templates also give you some of the power of a motion graphics suite such as Adobe After Effects, but with the linear editing capabilities of Adobe Premiere Pro.
Envato Elements has thousands of Premiere Pro templates for you to choose from, all available as part of a monthly subscription. You can search via categories like “logo stings” or “titles”, if you’re looking for a specific type of template, or narrow your search even further by looking for particular styles – there’s an option for every possible type of video!
If you enjoy a touch of the traditional, try this parallax slideshow template with spreading ink effect. You won’t need any plugins to use it, and with 13 placeholders for both your text and photos, it’s the perfect size for most projects.
Getting to grips with a video editing suite can seem really daunting, but if you want to learn Premiere Pro then starting with our Premiere Pro course is a great first step. The course, from Envato Tuts+, is broken down into bite-sized lessons and starts off gently, helping you get to grips with things like file structure, as well as a quick tour of the main Premiere Pro features.
Once you’re happy with that, you can move on to lessons that walk you through importing and organizing your project files, simple edits like creating a sequence and how to make cuts, and eventually on to more in-depth processes: video, audio, and master clip effects.
Make your way through the lessons at your own pace and in your own time, and you’ll have mastered Premiere Pro before you know it, leaving you to enjoy the creative process and decision making, while the technical know-how comes as second nature.
Learning how to use an editing suite is great, but sometimes you have questions as you go along – you might be editing and suddenly think, ‘how do I do this particular thing?’ That’s why we’ve created our Premiere Pro FAQ, to help answer all those regular little queries that crop up while you edit your video.
If you use complementary Adobe suites, you may wonder how to get your files from one to the other, Adobe Audition files to Premiere Pro and vice versa. We’ve got you covered. In our Premiere Pro FAQ video, we look at common questions like how to use proxies for fast editing, how to work with captions, and how to export your own motion graphic template.
It may be that something someone else has thought of, hadn’t occurred to you yet and you may learn a useful new skill off the back of that!
