Easily create a custom animated world map using Adobe Stock animated templates.

Find a template on Adobe Stock

Search for an animated world map template inside Premiere Pro’s Essential Graphics panel.

To do so, in the menu bar, choose Window > Workspaces > Graphics.

Find your Essential Graphics panel and click on the Browse tab. Below that, select the Adobe Stock icon button. Search for a template in the search box. In this example, we used the term travel map to find animated maps with customizable locator pins.

You can drag your cursor across the thumbnail of the infographic to see the animation. Once you find one you like, click the shopping cart icon in the lower right-hand corner of the thumbnail to license the infographic from right inside Premiere Pro.

NOTE: You can also search for a template on the Adobe Stock  website. Go to www.stock.adobe.com and enter your search term. In this example, we used the search term travel map.

To limit your results to Premiere Pro motion graphic templates, click on the dropdown menu to the left of the search bar and choose Templates.

Next, click the View Filters button, and in the App list, click on the radio button next to Premiere Pro.

When you find a template you like, click the Buy License button, follow the prompts, and your animated motion graphic template will automatically download to your computer.


Import and edit the template in Premiere Pro

In the menu bar, choose Window > Workspaces > Graphics.

Find your Essential Graphics panel and click on the Browse tab. In the lower right corner of the panel, click the Plus button to import your downloaded motion graphic template.

Navigate to its location on your hard drive and select it.

Now that your animated world map graphic is imported, you’ll find it in the Essential Graphics panel, in the My Templates tab.

Drag it onto the Timeline to edit the template.
