With these FREE animated motion graphics templates for Premiere Pro, you can add some eye-catching animated titles to your edits — quickly and easily.
As you can tell, we’ve been all about these sort of gritty textured styles of animation and design lately. I feel like it’s a nice step outside of the clean, almost sterile corporate animation and design we see so often.
We’ve recently learned some new ways to incorporate some of that handmade stop-motion style texture and vibe into these motion graphics templates for Premiere. As we experimented with different looks and created different titles with these effects, we thought: Why not give these away for free?
With each of these FREE motion graphics templates for Premiere, we wanted to include as much customization as possible. Every single one of these templates has a whole slew of options inside of the Essential Graphics Panel. These options will give you the ability to create a vast amount of different, unique title animations, rather than just the ten stock looks included.
NOTE: To use these transitions, you must have the most recent version of BOTH Premiere and After Effects installed. They will not work without After Effects installed.
PremiumBeat has launched a new music subscription. You can now get more high-quality music at $12.99 per music track. Use more music along with this below free pack.
This pack of 10 FREE Texture Title Animations for Premiere includes the following:
- 10 .mogrt motion graphics template files for Adobe Premiere Pro
- A folder of fonts to install for the stock looks for the templates
- .ae project file for further customization and options
What Is a .mogrt File?
Mogrt is short for Motion Graphics Template. A .mogrt file is a single animation that was exported from After Effects. You can open .mogrt file templates in your Premiere Pro via the Essential Graphics Panel.

Use and Customize These Motion Graphics Templates
Although, technically, there are ten motion graphics templates included in this freebie, there are way more possibilities with them. Each one has the ability to turn backgrounds on or off and change the amount of texture. You can even remove all of the stop motion effects and end up with a much cleaner, more contemporary look.
You can mix and match different elements, change fonts, turn off various objects. Essentially, these can be used in whatever way you can imagine and the possibilities are pretty endless.
The Essential Graphics Panel
Each graphic will come with its own set of customization options. Make changes to your motion graphics templates (a.k.a. mogrt files) by dragging a template to your timeline (installation instructions below), and selecting it. After selecting it, you should be able to access the Edit tab of the Essential Graphics Panel (if not open, go to the Window tab and check Essential Graphics Panel).
Here, you’ll find all of the specific parameters available for that specific title template. Each one will allow for font changes (install the included fonts to get the looks from the trailer), color options, as well as style controls. The style controls will be different from graphic to graphic, but they should all be organized in drop-downs that’ll make it easier to find what you need.
As you will discover, you can turn off backgrounds, remove certain effects, or make some of them more prominent. Essentially, by playing around with the various options, you should be able to create a wide variety of animations with this freebie.
Using the Title Kit
Here’s an example of a template included in this freebie that I think has way more uses than you might initially realize.
This was initially a bit of an experiment that ended up working out pretty well. There are a handful of text animation styles that you find yourself using quite often. Sliding, dropping, rising, and scaling in and out. I thought: What if there was a .mogrt file that allowed you to create well animated titles with each of those types of animations? This ended up being the Title Kit.
Inside of this .mogrt, you’ll find a checkbox for each type of animation, and all the options you’d need to make it a standard text animation, or create this textured stop motion look. With this .mogrt, you can stack and mix and match the various animation styles by checking the animation style you want (and turning the others off), then laying one text element on top of the other. Endless options, all inside of Premiere.
How to Install These Free Motion Graphics Templates
These templates are extremely easy to use and install. Premiere has recently added some new ways to use .mogrt files, which is a welcome change compared to the old method (installing them one at a time, individually).
Installing Folders to Your Library
When you’re inside Premiere, you’ll first want to make sure you have the Essential Graphics Panel open. If it’s not, head up to the Window tab and make sure that it’s checked.
In the Essential Graphics Panel, you’ll notice a little hamburger-style icon right next to the tab name. Right-click on that (pictured above), then select Manage Additional Folders.
Select Manage Additional Folders.
Once there, you can click on the Add button and navigate to the folder where you’ve stored your transition .mogrt files, then hit the OK button.
Now, you’ll have the transitions added as a new library.
This way, you can easily and quickly add or remove folders from your .mogrt library to quickly select styles for various projects. Obviously, this is a much better way to keep your motion graphics templates organized than Premiere had previously available.
Dragging Directly into Premiere
Another method that’s now available — which is quicker, albeit a little less organized — is to just drag your .mogrt files directly into the Essential Graphics Panel.
However, doing it this way will add the files to your local Premiere Pro motion graphics templates folder, which will send the files in to mingle with all the other motion graphics you’ve installed (including the stock ones that Adobe ships with the software). I don’t like doing it this way as much, since it makes it a bit harder to find the graphics you’re looking for.
If you want to get a look under the hood at how this stuff was made, or make your own changes to the animations as you see fit, we’ve included the .ae project file so you can do whatever you need to with these animations.
Just don’t judge me for how I keep my projects organized. It gets a little messy in there sometimes.
Use Alongside Previous Freebies
This freebie kind of wraps up the unofficial “Textured Motion Graphics” saga that we’ve been adding to, over time, here at PremiumBeat.
We’ve been on a bit of a mission, lately, to create a whole package of options for motion graphics in this sort of stop-motion textured style. We’ve now got transitions, textures, titles, and animated fonts, all in this gritty, frame-by-frame style.
The hope is that you’ll download them all, mix and match them together, and create a cohesive and consistent look for your projects. Hopefully, between all of these freebies, you’ll find something that will fit your style and needs.
