Use Presets in Premiere Pro & After Effects to give your video editing and motion design projects unique color looks.
I use video editing presets often to quickly create stylized looks for color grading. They are a more affordable option than plugins for those on a budget. There are several FREE preset collections available online that will work in Premiere Pro or After Effects (they work in one application or the other, not both). These Premiere Pro and After Effects presets are a combination of multiple effects that you can use as is or modify to create your own custom looks.
In this post I’ll share a few resources for free Premiere Pro presets and how to install them on your system. Then we’ll tackle free AE presets, with installation instructions as well.
