Jarle’s Premiere Pro presets version 1.0

Jarle's Premier Pro presets

I’m happy to announce that my preset package for Premiere Pro CS6 is available for free download. All 63 presets are compatible with Premiere Pro CS6, and can be installed in seconds. You’ll get lots of Color Grading presets, including several “Looks” presets for Bleach Bypass, Teal & Orange, Sepia, Color Negative, Cross Process and many more.

In addition, there are LOG to LIN presets for Alexa, Canon Cinestyle for DSLRs and for Sony F3, some scaling tools for HD to SD, 1080 to 720 etc. and a few in the Miscellaneous folder.

Most of the presets have tool tips so when you hover over them you’ll get info about how to use them. For example, the “Anonymizer” preset says “Use on Adjustment Layer for Witness Protection effect. Put matte on Video 3”.

Make your own custom presets

The presets in this package are used in The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro. If you like them, please consider reading the book to learn how to create your own custom presets and use them for an accelerated workflow.

You don’t have to wait for the book to be finished. You can download a PDF version of the chapter on Color Grading in Premiere Pro now to learn how to do advanced color grading in Premiere using only the built-in tools.

The download link below is for the old version 1.0

Note: These presets have now been replaced by Jarle’s Premiere Pro Presets version 2.0 . I recommend that you go to the new post and download the new version.

    I just dll the first chapter of the book. Premium info. Thank you!

    Funny cos I’m an Grass Valley Edius user (80% time) but I use PP for commercials and promos.

    Keep the good work and I’m waiting foe the book …

  4. Dilini says:

    Hi Jarles, Thanks for all the awesome stuff that you share with everyone. Might sound silly, but I’m going to ask anyway. The colour presets, would it work with CS3

    1. Dilini, I know that most of them work in CS5.5, but never tried CS3. It wouldn’t hurt to try, though. If they don’t work, just delete them again.
      But you should really consider upgrading to CS6. It’s a whole new ballgame. :-)

  5. Phil Mastman says:

    I’m new to Premiere after 20 years with Avid and FCP. Thanks for this great set of presets… They’ll come in very handy!

  6. vashi nedomansky says:

    Thank you so much for your generous and uber helpful, time-saving presets. I am using them all day every day. Amazing!

  7. mattia says:

    Non so proprio come ringraziarti, sostituiscono a pieno le “Looks” del Magic Bullet!!!! Bravissimo!!!
    I do not know how to thank you, in lieu of a fully “Looks” of the Magic Bullet!! Very good!

  8. Alain Nasnas says:

    Thank you for this wonderful tutorial on color correction. Thank you for sharing your expertise with us. Personally, I learned a lot from you. Namaste

  9. Mike says:

    Where is the “bad reception and interferance.wav” that is suppose to be used with the bad reception effect?

  10. Dan says:

    Wher is this .wav file you speak of, to match up with the bad signal effect “bad reception and interference.wav” Thanks so much!

    1. Mike and Dan, the sound effects file that the Bad TV Reception preset is matched to will be made available when the chapter on Motion Graphics is finished. Sorry to keep you waiting.

  12. DC Reels says:

    The LUT converter alone was worth it but all the other add-ons are great too. Well done.

  13. Tobias says:

    Tusen takk Jarle!

  14. Sean says:

    Really great tutorial and set of presets! Was great help for my first few days at my new job:) Thanks soooo much!

  15. Vanlal says:

    Dear, Jarle.. When I import the Presets to adobe premiere cs3, An error occurs that says “Sorry, A serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere pro to shut down. We will attempt to save your current Project” What could be the problem, Please Help, I really need your Presets to edit our Music Video.. :(

    1. Hi Vanlal, the presets were made in CS6, so I would be surprised if they work in older versions of Premiere Pro.

  16. Josh says:

    Thanks for the bad t.v. preset, came in super handy in a pinch!!

  17. Joel says:

    Thanks a million.
    Great presets to use directly or work further on.

    BTW, they actually work without any problems with CS5 as well :)

  18. Vegasaur says:

    Hats off to you Jarles for your great work! Thanks for sharing your presets, very useful!

  19. Douglas says:

    Hi Jarle,

    Any hope this will work in CS 5? Or that we can make them work in CS5

    1. Hi Douglas, Most of them will probably just work in CS5 without trouble, as there were only minor changes between those versions when it comes to effects. Did you try them?

      1. Douglas says:

        Hi Jarle,

        I want to but as I was seeing comments about cs6 and non compatibility with earlierversions I said to ask 1st before trying them out.

        Downloading now!!!

  20. Jaris Dominguez says:

    sorry if this question is a little bit ignorant, does this work for MAC OS???

    1. Yes, Premiere Pro works equally well on Mac and PC, so the presets are cross platform.

  21. deftom says:

    Thank you very much ! A great work :)

    how to add preset in premier

    1. Please follow the instructions in the file named “How to install the Presets.txt”.

  23. George says:

    I’m getting a ‘File format not supported’ error message on import.

    I’m using CS6 on an iMac. Any suggestions?

    1. Did you open the Read Me file and follow the instructions?

      1. George says:

        Clicking on the icon automatically begins import to PR and then I get the error message. Is there a specific program you’d recommend for ‘Unzipping the file’ before import?

      2. I use the built-in one in Windows, and it works perfectly well – but any unzipping software should be OK. The presets are stored in a simple XML format.

  24. Pontus says:

    Hi Jarle,
    I am a Premiere Elements user. Can not afford the pro version yet. Can I use anything of this with my software?

  25. Imonitie says:

    Thanks a million for your awesome presets. I almost slapped myself for not knowing about your stuff for a long time; but now, I won’t be left out again.
    Please save my email and holla me whenever you got new stuff.

  26. mmt says:

    thank you so much! will try these out!

  27. Michele says:

    I followed the instructions, but unfortunately I do not see it in Premiere CS5 between presets … what a pity!

    1. Michele, it says pretty clearly in the post that these are for CS6, so I would not expect them to work in CS5.
