Adobe Premiere Effects

Use Presets in Premiere Pro & After Effects to give your video editing and motion design projects unique color looks.

I use video editing presets often to quickly create stylized looks for color grading. They are a more affordable option than plugins for those on a budget. There are several FREE preset collections available online that will work in Premiere Pro or After Effects (they work in one application or the other, not both). These Premiere Pro and After Effects presets are a combination of multiple effects that you can use as is or modify to create your own custom looks.

In this post I’ll share a few resources for free Premiere Pro presets and how to install them on your system. Then we’ll tackle free AE presets, with installation instructions as well.

#1: ProcAmp effect

This is an effect that is used to make alterations to the contrast, brightness, saturation and hue of an image in the video clip.

#2: Camera blur effect

This is achieved by changing the focal range of a camera which ends up in having the clip blurred. It will only blur the key frame that has been selected and not the whole image or clip.

#3: Channel blur effect

This effect is responsible for blurring specific channels of the clip individually. It can be alpha, blue, green or red channel which will be blurred singly.

#4: Compound blur effect


This is an effect that causes blurring of pixels as per the value of luminance. This means that the bright values of a clip will be blurred more than the darkest values. You can use this effect to simulate fingerprints and smudges.

#5: Gaussian blur effect

It is a blurring effect that makes the image soft and does away with noise. You will have the privilege of specifying whether the blurring will be done horizontally, vertically or even in both ways. The choice will all be yours to make.

#6: Sharpen effect

Use this effect to enhance contrast in sections of the video where changes to color occur. Never use it without highlighting the areas to be affected otherwise the whole clip will be altered.

#7: Unsharp mask effect

If you have a video file where the edge is defined by different colors, this effect will be good to improve contrast. It’s ideal in cases where colors are confusing to the eyes.

#8: Blend effect

This one makes good use of one mode to blend together multiple clips. You will first select the clip for blending but then disable it once the blending is over. There are different blending modes that you will choose one from.

#9: Broadcast colors effect

This effect completely changes the pixel color values once used. Video programs to be used for TV broadcasting use this effect in maintaining the signal amplitudes within the accepted range. You should be able to determine the specific sections of the clip that will be affected by this effect.

#10: Change to color effect

Free Adobe Premiere Effects

If you choose to use this one, it will make changes to the color that you select on an image accordingly. All the colors that are not selected will not be affected in any way.
