Are you a video editor looking to acquire a new collection of effect presets? Perhaps, you’re a complete tyro who’s not sure how to get started using them? Either way, you’re in luck!

We’ve put together a comprehensive list of free Premiere Pro CC presets followed by helpful steps to create and edit your own. We hope all of your new freebies will help improve your workflows and make your video editing more efficient.

Part 1: Premiere Pro CC Presets You Can Download for Free

To ensure we’re all on the same page, Premiere Pro presets (or effect presets as they’re also called) are a list of saved effects used by editors when creating high-end resolution videos. While effect presets do come installed with Adobe Premiere Pro, using these default presets can get quite irksome (and boring to use) over time.

Part 2: How To Make Your Own Custom Presets

Basically, any clip that you can keyframe can become a preset for you to save and use later for any other project you may have in future. By this, you don’t have to edit effects and set the keyframes manually all over again.

The following steps will guide you on how to create and save effect presets made by you.

  1. Within Premiere Pro CC, select the video clip to which you have applied one or more effect presets settings. For example, ease in, ease out, corner pin, etc.
  2. In the Effects Controls panel, select the effect you wish to make a preset out of and then right-click.
  3. From the list of dropdown options, select Save Preset and type in your desired preset name in the dialog box that appears.

Choose from 3 preset types:

  • Scale: This allows keyframes to scale in proportion to the video clip length. They’ll pretty much scale to however long your clip is instead.
  • Anchor To In Point: In contrast to scaling, this preset type is saved so that the first keyframe effect is added at the original distance from the In point of the clip.
  • Anchor To Out Point: Instead of retaining set distance from clip In point, this type keeps keyframe effects relative to the Out point position of a clip. Other effects are added in relation to this point with no scaling.
  • Once you’re done, click OK and there it is; you have your own first preset!

To make use of your own modified preset, open the Effects panel. Then expand the Presets folder to reveal a drop-down list of your saved presets. Select and drag your desired preset on to video timeline.

If you desire to modify any preset you create by changing its name, type or even description, you just need to select the Effects panel and right-click on the preset you wish to edit and then select Preset properties. The same dialog box that popped up when you first created the preset will appear again, and then you can make your desired changes.

Of what use is it if you can’t share your creative work with people for appreciation or even for money? If you want to share your presets, follow these steps listed below.

  • In the Effects panel, select the Presets folder and right-click on the desired preset.
  • Select Export Presets.
  • This will take you to your files folder in your computer where you can save your presets for future access or sharing purposes. In the options where you select Export presets, you can choose Import Presets instead (in case you have a desired collection of presets that you want to retrieve and use in Premiere Pro).

Using these free Premiere Pro presets gives you a better and easier way to create captivating videos. With all these new freebies to work with and steps to create your own, you can rest assured that your efficiency is about to increase big time!
