Adobe's flagship non-linear video editing program is a powerful tool, but it's also a bit intimidating for new users. A template can be a great way to speed up your learning, and they're a quick way to produce professional-looking results even if you're not an experienced editor. Here are ten quick and easy Premiere Pro templates from Elements, Envato's subscription service (offering video projects, graphics, stock audio and music, images, and more—everything you need to create great video projects).

How to Add Audio to Adobe Premiere
Here's a tip that anyone can use: all templates benefit from adding a well-chosen backing audio track. The right music paired with a video project is sure to be noticed.
Luckily, Envato Elements now includes almost 10,000 audio tracks as part of the subscription. All of these tracks can be used as part of the flat rate membership.
To add a clip to Adobe Premiere, start by downloading an audio clip from a licensed source like Envato Elements.
Then, open Premiere. Find the project panel on the left side and drag-and-drop an audio clip into the panel to add it to the available files.
Now, drag-and-drop that audio clip from the project panel onto the timeline.
That's it! Now your audio will play in the project. You can always adjust the length of it to match the video timeline.
