Use Motion Graphics templates on ZenBook Pro to spice up your Premiere Pro videos
Using Adobe Premiere Pro on the ZenBook Pro is a pure joy thanks to discrete NVIDIA graphics and a high-powered Intel Core i7 processor. To make sure you make the most out of this video editing software, we’re going to check out how to apply motion graphics templates in Premiere Pro. This way you can jazz up titles, backgrounds and more without having to learn After Effects from scratch.
With Motion Graphics Templates, you can load in animations sourced from your colleagues or direct through stock repositories, then tweak as needed. Motion effect files are packages as encapsulated .mogrt files, which are distinct from standard After Effects (.aep) project files. Even though you won’t need to use After Effects proper, you’ll still need to make sure it’s installed.
How to use motion graphics templates in Premiere Pro
- Click Graphics from the menu bar, then Install Motion Graphics Template…
- Navigate to the .mogrt file you wish to work with.
- If you’ve added files through Creative Cloud libraries, click the drop-down menu in the Libraries tab in the bottom-left, and select the folder where your effects are stored.
- Drag and drop the Motion Graphics onto the timeline where you want them to run.
- Select the Motion Graphic in the timeline and click Effect Controls in the top-left pane to edit template elements. Left-clicking the graphic in the preview pane will also open up these options in the Essential Graphics pane.
The options available will vary by template, but they should offer a full range of options for changing colors, text, sizes, and more.
As you can see, Motion Graphics Templates are very simple to drop into a project and can afford a lot of flexibility depending on your video. Many more are available directly through Adobe Stock if you don’t have your own graphic designer putting the templates together.
Once you’ve started using motion graphics templates in Premiere Pro on the ZenBook Pro, you’ll notice that they’re rendered quite quickly – in fact, up to 33% faster than the 15-inch MacBook Pro 2016. That’s because the ZenBook Pro has a ton of power at its disposal. Up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics processor will be doing the lion’s share of the work when it comes to these templates, but the Intel Core i7 processor will likely fire up Turbo Boost to 3.8 GHz, and make full use of its 6 MB cache when Premiere Pro is running at full tilt.
