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.
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.
- If you saved the Motion Graphics template to your Creative Cloud Libraries — Click on the dropdown menu that says “Essential Graphics” and choose “Libraries”. Use the second dropdown menu to navigate to the CC Library where you saved the Motion Graphics template.
- If you saved the Motion Graphics template to your computer — Click on the icon that looks like a folder with an arrow pointing to it (next to the menu that says “Essential Graphics”). Locate the Motion Graphics template you downloaded and click “Open”. Double-click the folder in the library that says “(insert file name).”
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?!)
