Want to create a dynamic holiday greeting but don’t have time to figure out how to get the exact effect you want? Motion Graphics templates make it easy to add beautiful animations to your videos without having to teach yourself Adobe After Effects.

As our gift to you, we’ve selected Motion Graphics templates from Adobe Stock that can be quickly adapted for holiday greetings so you can spread some cheer in your videos this year. You can quickly change the templates to fit your style — whether you’re making a professional video, a year in review video, or a highlight reel of your cat ringing in the New Year.

It’s easy to add a Motion Graphics template to your video and customize it to fit the look and feel of your holiday greeting­, and we’ll show you how.

Motion Graphics templates can be opened directly inside Adobe Premiere Pro. To get started in Premiere Pro, download this free template from Adobe Stock and save it to your CC Libraries or desktop.

1. Download free Motion Graphics template from the link above. For fast reuse, save it to your Creative Cloud Libraries.

Try Adobe Premiere Pro CC for free here.

2. Open the Essential Graphics panel.

3. Drag the Motion Graphics template into your timeline wherever you would like it to appear in your video. You can place it on top of other content to create a transition effect.


To edit, select the “.mogrt” on your timeline and the Essential Graphics panel will switch focus to the “Edit” tab where you can access and edit the parameters to customize your graphic. We chose a palette of light blues and whites to create a Frozen-worthy greeting.

4. Now that you’ve customized your graphic, whenever you’re done with the edit, eExport the file in your favorite X format and you’re ready to share your video. (Ps: Did you know that Premiere Pro now supports exporting to Animated GIFs?!)
