How to create motion graphics

Let’s start with the basics, creating a simple text that we can animate. From the ‘essential graphics’ panel we can add texts and shapes. Of course you can create your own custom look for all of this. You can then animate this with the crop and transform effect for example.

Creating loops in Premiere pro

You’ve created an animation with your motion graphics but you want to loop it… Is that possible? Sure! Simply duplicate you clips in the timeline and place it behind eachother, you can do that for as many times as you want. Then you can select all those clips and nest them. This way you can still reposition, resize or shorten the loop.
