All it takes is sharp text with smooth animations to really grab a viewer's attention. Even if you don't know animation, you can use pre-built projects to create text animations.
My favorite part about these Adobe Premiere Pro projects is their ease-of-use. I'm not a full-time pro video editor, but these projects can make it look that way! Make sure to press play on each of these previews to get a quick look at what they can do for you.
Cool Text Templates From Envato Elements (Unlimited Downloads)
One of the best sources for Premiere Pro text effect templates is Envato Elements. For a single flat rate, you can download an unlimited number of templates that are just waiting for your customizations.
Here are three of my favorite Premiere Pro text effect templates from Envato Elements:
Glitchy text is sure to catch a viewer's eye with fast-moving, unpredictable effects. These effects feel right at home in sci-fi and futuristic video styles. Add them to your Premiere Pro project easily with this template.
If you want to give your Premiere Pro text effect some depth, you've come to the right place. This template might look "pre-animated" for the placeholders, but remember that you can update it with your customizations easily. Just type over the built-in option and watch it animate to life.
Comic bubbles have some of the most memorable text effects. Create those punchy "pow!" and "bam!" text effects with the help of this template. You can add any text to a comic style bubble for a bit of fun in your video project.

With resolutions all the way up to 4K, this pack will automatically resize and animate text. You don't have to animate these from scratch just add your own text choice over the placeholders and watch it come to life.

4. Text Message
Recreate a text exchange using this project. You can simply add your own text into the placeholders of this project to animate a back-and-forth conversation. The text messaging boxes will automatically resize to fit the size of the text you add. Even though the default view recreates the look and feel of iMessage or Messenger, you can change the color and style easily.
I love this project for its ease of use and deep animation options.
With 19 different animation templates built into the project, you can
choose from any of them for incredible text animation. As always, it's a
breeze to just add your own text to the project.
Note: works in Premiere, but requires After Effects is also installed.
Perfect for overlays or titles, the animations in this project are going to take center-stage. Just add your own text choice to the built-in text boxes and Adobe Premiere will handle the rest. With 20 different animations and 5 variants each, there's plenty of room for using this file on many Premiere projects without repeating yourself.
A call out title can draw attention to specific details or elements in a video. This project is perfect for creating those easily in Premiere to focus the viewer's eye on a portion of the screen. Call out titles bring those helpful annotative details to explain the video perfectly.
With 28 different styles for animating kinetic typography, this Adobe Premiere Pro project has a lot of value.
Note: works in Premiere, but requires the Essential panel.
This project would be perfect for a marketing or web design firm.
Just open it up and choose your own text that you want to animate as a
search term and you'll see it animated in a search box.
Every video editor needs an easy project for animating text as a title or lower thirds pack. No matter which one you use, I love the styles that are included in this project. Try them out to create impressive animations with text in just a few minutes.
