September 2018: Top Free and Paid Presets, Plugins, and Products for Premiere Pro.
If you regularly visit our News page, updated every weekday, you would have realized September was a HUGE month for what we call “Premiere Products” — products for Premiere Pro. (See how we cleverly combine the “pro” in Premiere Pro with products?) Maybe it was because IBC 2018 was in September, maybe it’s because of back to school, or maybe it was just a good month for generosity. Whatever the reason, here’s the list of Premiere Products, free and paid, that you definitely should know.
NOTE: We are not affiliated with anyone on this list. All products on this list have been either completely or partially vetted.
Free Premiere Products
Premiere Handy Tools
Premiere Handy Tools is a free Premiere Pro extension that reduces multi-step workflow tasks to a click of a button. It's a simple 3-button panel that can easily be docked in your current workspace. Read our blog post on Premiere Handy Tools to learn more about its features, along with an interview with the developer, Julien Chichignoud. We highly recommend reading the post, especially if you have any interest in coding your own Premiere Pro panels.
10 Free Track Matte Transitions
These 10 free track matte transitions come from Olufemii Tutorials. We featured these transitions in a post on how to use track mattes in Premiere Pro. In it we explain what mattes are, what the “track” in track matte means, and how to use track mattes as transitions with the Track Matte Key effect in Premiere Pro. We also review the transitions themselves and show you what exactly you’re getting in the pack. Download the transitions below and come back to our post if you get stuck.
5 Free Transitions
This free preset pack contains 5 transitions: Stretch (shown below), Bloom, Luma, Pixilation and Drawing. Learn how to install them and use them in the video tutorial above.

Free Flash Transition and Twitch Transition Packs
