Get the best film trailer video templates.
With customisable motion graphics templates, you can create an exciting film trailer or just a great video.
Film trailer makers don’t need to be motion graphics experts.
Whether you have a potential blockbuster on your hands or you just want to upgrade the look of a video for your YouTube channel, you can assemble exciting title sequences with motion graphics templates. Motion designers create these templates — also known as MOGRT files — in Adobe After Effects or Premiere Pro and convert them into single files with easy-to-use customisation controls.
After Effects and Premiere Pro templates can help you to create anything from a professional cinematic film trailer to an action-packed slideshow without building a motion graphics sequence from scratch. You can animate titles, add layers and set still images in motion. And you can save your customised template as its own video template to use later or share with others.
How to use free video templates in Premiere Pro.
First, you can experiment with the motion graphics templates that come included with Premiere Pro. Enter the Graphics workspace and explore the Essential Graphics panel to get started.
Select My Templates and scroll through transitions, overlays, animated title sequences, backgrounds and more. You can choose from templates built for sporting event coverage or even a sophisticated news background loop with a spinning globe.
Hover scrub (drag the arrow slowly across the thumbnail) to preview the template animations or try one out by dragging and dropping it onto your timeline.
Customise the text with your own titles, credits or taglines by clicking the text box in the preview window or adjusting alignment, font type and size, colour and angle in the right pane.
You can edit MOGRT files in your timeline just as you would edit other video clips.
Shop premium film trailer templates.
For templates that include more complex text animation, animated shapes, video footage and sound effects, you can explore the high-quality motion graphics templates available in Adobe Stock — and you don’t even have to leave the Premiere Pro workspace. Just click Adobe Stock instead of My Templates at the top of the Essential Graphics panel. Then type a keyword in the search box and hover scrub templates to see how they move.
Install and customise your template.
Once you find the perfect MOGRT for your project, it’s easy to install.
Create a library.
The best way to stay organised is to start organised. Create a library for your motion graphics templates in the Libraries panel in Premiere Pro.
- Select Windows › Libraries.
- Click the beefburger icon next to Libraries and select Create New Library from the pop-up list.
- In the text box that appears, type in the new Library name and click Create.
Add the asset to the library.
To upload a motion graphics template or any file, right-click the graphic from the Essential Graphics panel. Select Copy to Library from the pop-up and then select which library.
Add your text and customise its appearance.
Once you find it in the Essential Graphics panel, drag the MOGRT into your timeline. Click once on the graphic in your timeline and you’ll see sliders appear in the Essential Graphics panel. Type your replacement title into the text box. Further customise it by dragging the sliders to change the background image or the title’s position in the frame.
