Learn how to use and customize Motion Graphics templates in your Adobe Premiere Rush CC projects.

Motion Graphics templates are created by a motion graphics artist in either After Effects or Premiere Pro. You can use these professionally created templates.

Such graphic templates deliver an overall aesthetic with specific components such as titles, lower 3rds, bumpers, and closing credits. You can select an appropriate template from the ones available within the Title Inspector, or browse Stock for hundreds of other template options.

You can then change variables such as text, color, size, layout, or mood of the motion graphic template without changing the overall aesthetic.

Premiere Rush ships with sample Motion Graphics templates. You can also bring Motion Graphics templates into Premiere Rush from the following locations:

  • Local Templates Folder
  • Creative Cloud Libraries
  • Adobe Stock
