If you are looking for free motion graphics templates for Premiere Pro, check out our list of 12 free high-quality MOGRT templates, which you can download in no time.
Mogrt, which is short for Motion Graphics Template, is a massive time saver for beginner and pro video editors. A .mogrt file is an animated template built and saved from After Effects. Such a file has several suppored parameters and effects enabled for use in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Such motion graphics templates allow pro After Effects users to save animated elements and reuse them in Premiere Pro. The templates are also handy for Premiere Pro users who don’t use After Effects, but who need more advanced elements in their video edits.
You can open .mogrt files in Premiere Pro via the Essential Graphics panel with a couple of clicks. Then you can customize the template by adjusting the available controls like fonts, colors, animations.
This flexibility makes mogrt templates powerful tools for pro editors and social media influencers alike. If you edit videos, but you are not familiar with After Effects or other animation tools, access to high-quality mogrt templates will help make your videos look more professional and more engaging.
Motion Graphics Templates vs Video Templates
Before delving into the list of free mogrt files, we need to explain the difference between mogrt files and other video templates.
In our list we only have true mogrt files. These are animated elements built in After Effects and exported for use in Premiere Pro. Because they are .mogrt files, they may only allow a certain amount of customizations.
Some sites offer video templates that are not necessarily .mogrt files. You can download free video templates for Premiere Pro on sites like Mixkit, which are Premiere Pro projects (but not templates). For example, a free video template like this is an exported PP project with all the pieces included. When you open it, you can see all the elements laid out in the Premiere Pro timeline.
Sometimes, the project may lack a piece or two.
