Do you edit or compose videos? With software or online?
Great! Now you will see where you can download completely free editable video templates to boost your video editing and compositing projects! Free video templates can be a little tricky to find, but we’ll get this solved in this post!
Just to make it clear, a video template is a video sample that works as a start point for you to keep editing and custom the way you like. Cool, right?!
Templates save a lot of time as they have special effects such as text, transitions, 3D animation and even background music.
In this post you will see where to download free video templates that work with popular video editing software (such as Premiere Pro and After Effects), you will also see where to get free video templates for online editing (no software required, you edit and download the template right from the website).
Let’s get started!
You can download more than 4,000 free video templates on Velosofy for video editing software such as Vegas Pro, Filmora, Blender and Panzoid, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Final Cut Pro and others.
The templates for Vegas Pro are in the category “Sony Vegas”, which is the old name of this software, when it was owned by Sony. Today, Vegas Creative Software is owned and developed by MAGIX.
The download page will require you to wait a few seconds before you can complete the download. Some templates are hosted on MediaFire, so the download button will redirect you to a MediaFire download page, that’s how it works.
Some of the templates will redirect you to Envato Placeit, where they can be edited for free. In this case, you really need to edit the free template and play the full video slide before you can download it for free.
Some of the video template categories in Canva that you can pick templates from are: Birthday, Educational, Reviews, Health, Food, Fashion, Travel, Funny Meme, Slideshow, YouTube Intros and YouTube Outros.
Just one thing you need to be aware of is that Canva offers tons of free media, but it also works as a subscription service. So you may find some templates that are paid, which means you can edit them, but you can’t download your edited version without paying.
However, with a little bit of research inside Canva library, you discover many great free video samples to use, so don’t give it up just yet, try it out first!
Another great source of free video templates is Videezy. In fact, this website has free templates and free video footage too. So, on Videezy home page, type “template” on the search bar and search it, then it will filter more than 2,200 free video templates as a result.
You can also search for templates for a specific video editing software by typing something like “template after effects” on the search bar to filter After Effects templates, for example. You can preview every template on the download page.
Videezy offers Premium paid templates too, so when you see a green label with the word “PRO” on the template thumbnail, that’s a paid template.
You also have the option to filter the results even more with search filters on the left side of the screen: Best Match (for the keyword you typed), by Newest (upload date), by File Type, by Resolution (SD, HD720, HD 1080, 4K, or Ultra HD) and by Format. Those search filters only appear when you search for a keyword, not on the home page.
You will see the filter “License type” on the search page too, with four different licenses:
- Creative Commons
- Editorial Use Only
