Motion Graphics Templates on Adobe Stock UPDATED 4/19/18

Overview

Adobe Stock's Motion Graphics templates enable video creators to add a polished, finishing touch to their video projects. These pre-built transitions, titles, lower thirds, and more, are created in After Effects, but can easily be downloaded and modified in Premiere Pro. These templates offer inspiration to video creators of all levels, and significantly reduce the time spent designing motion graphics elements from scratch.

Target Audience

Motion Graphic templates are useful for the entire spectrum of the video community. For novice users, templates provide high-quality, ready-made content to help their creative endeavors shine. Templates also showcase best practices, so that users can effectively explore options and build on their skills. For seasoned creatives, Motion Graphics templates serve as an efficient tool that saves time, and provide inspiration and exposure to new workflows.

Contributor Advantages

Our Motion Graphics are sourced from the world's leading motion graphics artists, and we're continuously growing our contributor community.

Exposure: As an Adobe Stock Contributor, your work will be showcased and made available to millions of Creative Cloud customers, including large brands, advertisers, publishers, enterprises, educators, filmmakers, and video creators.

Revenue: Plus, you can generate meaningful revenue from the sales of your templates, even as you continue to focus on your other clients and assignments.

Pricing

Our contributors receive a competitive 40% commission each time an asset is sold. Adobe Stock is not exclusive, but please allow one month before selling templates on other content sites.

What We're Looking For:

  • Lower Thirds
  • Titles/Text Overlays
  • Transitions
  • Backgrounds
  • Infographics
  • Social Media

Quick Specs

  • Templates must be built in After Effects version 15.0.1 without 3rd party plugins.
  • One single .mogrt file per template, small packs of content/options are fine as long as they stay within a singular category.
  • All fonts must be from Typekit.
  • No force-cap fonts.
  • No 3rd party plug-ins.
  • 3D Renderers are fine, but no Ray-Trace.
  • Expressions must be Universalized using MatchNames. The Expression Universalizer script can do this automatically for you.
  • Adherence to IP & Copyright restrictions and use of dummy texts.
  • Usage of photos/videos must be created solely by you, & people/locations in them require a model release.

Composition Settings

  • Dimensions: 1920 x 1080
  • Duration: 5-60 seconds
  • Transitions Duration: The comp length may be 2 seconds long
  • Framerates: use framerates between 23.976/24 to 59.94/60

Fonts

Fonts must be chosen from the Adobe Typekit Library. This provides a superior integrated customer experience as customers using Premiere Pro have full access to the Typekit Library and can use the same font throughout their project if they wish. Motion Graphics templates using fonts that are not available in Typekit will not be considered for Adobe Stock.

Typekit.com website where you can control installed fonts on your computer

3D Rendering (Classic, Cinema 4D and Ray-traced)

3D usage considerations:

  • 3D can cause a drop in project performance
  • Classic & Cinema 4D renderer projects are accepted
  • Ray-traced 3D projects are not allowed
  • Use 3D sparingly in order to allow for excellent user experience

Expressions & Scripts

Use Expression Universalizer 3.0 to enable expressions to cross languages and prevent errors.

Third Party Effects & Plug-ins

Third party plug-ins such as Red Giant, Video Copilot and Boris FX cannot be included. Elements that are necessary should be rendered and layered into the design. Care should be taken to keep any embedded videos as small as possible.

Artwork & Images

Graphic elements may be used only if they are original designs. Please note that image/asset replacement is not currently supported, so do not submit designs that necessitate an image or video to be replaced by the user.

Text References

Avoid the use of real names and references to identifiable people, companies, and locations in their templates, including the Adobe name, logo, or products. Substitute fictitious and generic names to represent individuals, company/logo placements, etc.

Examples:

  • Names: “John Smith”, “Jane Smith”, “Mary Doe”, "FirstName LastName"
  • Companies: “Your Company”, “Your Logo”
  • Emails/Websites: “You@Example.com”, “www.YourCompanyURL.web”
  • Addresses: “123 Street, City, State 45678”
  • Dummy Text/Paragraphs: “Subtitle text", "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing...”

Legal Requirements

Assets and contents within Templates

As with any other content submitted to Adobe Stock, contributors must wholly own all rights to the assets within templates, including any necessary licenses and releases. Don’t submit files that don’t belong to you (for example, photos which your spouse took) or which incorporate items that are not yours, such as content found on websites or through online search results.

Contributors cannot use any stock content in templates they submit to Adobe Stock. We also do not accept Creative Commons Zero (CC0) or public domain images. This includes modifying a stock image so it is no longer recognizable and using stock or modified stock for 3D textures.

Templates go through a review and revisions process by the Adobe Stock team for standards and quality, and are evaluated on the overall performance on both lower-end and typical machines. Motion Graphics templates should be well-designed, out of the box solutions that are simple enough to use without additional documentation.

To create a consistent user experience and to help all users adopt Motion Graphics templates into their workflows, we have implemented guidelines with regards to 'Mogrts' design. You will be sent this in-depth article with technical specs after sign up.
