How to apply presets in Premiere Pro?

Adding a regular preset to the timeline

This way, you can add any regular preset to the timeline that is not a video transition, for example, footage, motion design elements, sounds, etc.

  1. On the timeline, move the time indicator to the frame where you want to add the preset.
  2. Select a preset in the Motion Bro plugin and click ‘Apply’. The preset will be added by the time indicator.

Adding a transition preset to the timeline

You can use this method to add a video transition between two scenes.

  1. On the timeline, select all clips and other layers you want to connect via a video transition.
  2. Select a preset in the Motion Bro plugin and click ‘Apply’.   

Setting the duration of a transition preset

Before you add a transition preset to the timeline, you can change its duration. To do this, expand the Duration Bar and select the appropriate animation speed by clicking on one of the marks on the duration bar.

    Hi I just purchased the preset and applied the transition preset onto 2 of my footages. But it just hangs and doesn’t loads forever. Is there a solution to this? On Premiere Pro

    Hello! when I add a transition to the timeline, for some reason the color of the picture changes at the moment of the transition, and then after the end it becomes the same. The applied transition brightens the picture, and I don’t use any color filters!

    Hey, when I try to apply transitions by selecting 2 clips that are next to each other on the timeline, the effect is wrong. I’m trying to use a warp zoom in and it does a hard cut to the second clip, then zooms into that same clip. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

    these transitions cut up clips in my project and leave my project a mess. I really loved motion bro 3. These transitions look great but cause too many problems.

  6. Stephen says:

    Is there an easy way to remove the motion blur effect between the two clips in a transition such as the Simple Transform “Pan Left”?
    Second question, can you adjust where the transition hits, e.g. 50/50 between the two clips, or a bias towards one or the other?
    Thank you
