Graphic templates are one of the best things to come to the Premiere Pro world. With templates one can now use someone else’s creation as a starting point for their own effects and edits. No longer do you have to continually reinvent the wheel. If you want a sports intro, a social media call, or to save something you built, you now have the ability. With these graphics you can even build menus to edit them later on! Today I am going to show you how to import graphic templates in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Importing Graphic Templates in Premiere Pro
- Download a template to use. I use Envato Elements to find a large selection of ready to go graphic templates!
- Go to the Essential Graphics panel.
- Go to the bottom right of the panel, and find the square with a + button.
- Click on this button and it will bring up an explorer window to find your graphic.
- Find the template you have downloaded and double click on it.
- Now you have imported it.
- You can go to the search bar at the top and search for the name of your graphics template.
- Once you find it, click and drag it onto the sequence.
Editing Graphic Template
Now you have it imported and you are ready to go. To edit it, just click on the imported graphic while it’s in a sequence. In the Essential Graphics panel you will now find a set of parameters you can edit. (If you don’t see them, go to the top and hit the “Edit” tab).
Depending on how the graphic was created, you may be able to edit animations, text, or some other feature of the graphic layer!
