In this article we showcase ten professional templates from Envato Elements and Market that give you great colour grades, titles, transitions, openers, as well as lower-third options for your skateboard videos.
5 Top Skate Video Templates from Envato Elements
Youtube has changed the game for skaters and the skateboarding industry. By representing themselves skaters have the power to build their own reputations, companies, and careers—and to inspire others to do the same.
No matter your project, from branding a skate vlog to building a channel of skateboarding how-to videos, Envato Elements can help you save time while improving the quality of your final product; the templates here will all make creating skate videos a little bit faster and easier. A subscription to Elements gives a huge library of templates, stock video, and music, graphics, and courses to help keep your workflow moving efficiently and the quality of your work top-notch.
Here are five template picks from Elements to make top skateboarding videos.
1. Ultra Color
Ultra Color is a well organized template that consists of 100 LUT options divided into 10 tidy categories. It has a user friendly design allowing you drag and drop as well and he ability to preview the look without rendering.
The use of a lower third is a classic way to display someone's name. Inspiring Lower Thirds are well designed, stylistic, and minimal. This template has wonderfully simple in/out animations that grab attention without distracting from the skateboarding magic on screen.
When used in moderation and at the right moment Zoom Transitions can be the perfect tool to connect two clips that weren’t feeling right with a classic jump cut. This pack is loaded with fifty great options and features an easy-to-use drag and drop system. And watch the tutorial at the bottom of this page on how to use a related technique, speed ramping, that works perfectly with zoom transitions and skate video.
Titles will always be a nice tool to have on hand. Even in a skate film. Creative Titles offers 25 unique title styles to choose from, and with easy customization over the parameters you’ll be able to fit this in. I’d recommend it as alternative to using lower thirds.
Glitch Logo Intro is a great way to add a simple flair to your skate video. Just add your already existing logo, edit to your liking and you are off!
