These free animated lower thirds templates will speed up your editing process and give your video a polished, professional look.

Lower thirds are a crucial part of creating video and film. They are equally important to motion graphic designers and editors, plus everyone in between. They’re also important to the audience, delivering essential information that sets the scene and identifies the people on screen.

Until recently, animating lower thirds was a difficult process. Editors had to open After Effects and either work with dynamic links or render each lower third separately.

Now lower thirds are easier than ever. You can install these free animated lower thirds templates and and customize them natively in Premiere. Download the freebie and give them a try.

Once you have installed the templates you’ll find that each lower third template has its own unique animation and editable parameters within Premiere’s Essential Graphics panel. For those of you who want to choose your own fonts or make other changes, the After Effects project file is included.
