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Note: These presets have now been replaced by Jarle’s Premiere Pro Presets version 3.0. I recommend that you go to the new post and download the new version.

    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

    • 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:

  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!

    • 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.

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.. 🙁

  16. Josh says:

  17. Joel says:

    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

    • 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?

      • 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???

  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!

  28. Michael says:

    Hi Jarle

    i read your book about color correcting and of course i am using your tools. Log to Lin ist quite new to me and i find it confusing when i read about it in the internet. With your tools it seems so be pretty easy to unwarp the LOG to Linear and do after that some grading. But how come there is some stuff written about 3D Lut or the Process descriped here http://vimeo.com/83706944. Is there any benefit to apply any of these fancy program or do they just the same as the Log to Lin courves in your preset does? My S-LOG Material is recorded in ProRes 422.

    Thanks for those geat Tools anyway.


    • Hi Michael, 3D LUTs can do some things that a simple preset cannot do – like increasing or decreasing the saturation for just cyan colors only in the shadows, and so on. Unless yo’re aiming to make something look just the way your DOP saw it on his/her monitor – or you’re trying to make colors as close to natural as possible – then you don’t need a 3D LUT. In fact – a 3D LUT can destroy an image that’s under- or over exposed or where the white balance is off. So unless yo feel the need for 3D LUTs – and know how to use them, just use the LOG to LIN preset and go from there. In my productions, “correct” colors is never what I aim for – I just want the image to look good. 🙂

  29. Michael says:

    Thanks Jarle. So the same result can be achieved with both of these LUT’s but the “2D” needs more effort?
    I totaly agree with you about a good looking Picture.
    Thanks again

    We’ll these work for CC Premiere?

  31. arya says:

    I ask if there is a color presets for adobe premiere Pro2 ?, thanks

  32. Jorge says:

    Hy Jarle. Thank’s for the pack. I’m trying to install in Cs6 (Mac), but when I press the right button, the “import option” don’t appear. Have you some idea or different option to install this? Thank’s.

  33. Ayoshna says:

    Thank You so much they are exceptionally great!!

  34. Vics says:

    Downloaded and added latest version to presets, but when I add an effect to a clip the playback is really jerky. Does that mean my stem just isn`t powerful enough to use these or is there a workaround?

    • Hi Vics, if your system is under-powered and doesn’t have GPU acceleration it will struggle playing back many of these presets in real time. You can still use them, but may have to render the timeline to see them properly.

      • Vics says:

        Thanks. So am I right in thinking the playback will be jerky when I’m previewing/working on the project, but when I export it as a completed project it *won’t* be jerky?

      • Yes, this will only affect previewing while editing – not the exported video.

  35. Arjun says:

    Hi jarle i created a twitch preset for premiere pro cs3 would u mind uploading here

  36. ton says:

    Tkanks man! Im from Brazil, but we are connect in the world

  37. Harris says:

    Hi Jarle.. I’m using CS6 but can’t seem to import not drag to Look files in any folder.. What am I doing wrong?

    • These are not Look files. They are effect presets, and will be found in the Presets folder in your Effects panel after you’ve followed the instructions in the download.
