This review will breakdown the two main components of Motion Bro; the storefront and the Motion Bro plugin. This review will not cover individual preset packs.
Motion Bro Marketplace Overview:
Motion Bro hosts a wide range of presets. Including:
If the preset pack isn't free, each is priced very reasonably for the value you receive. One of our favorite packs is the Toko Graphics Pack. This pack has over 2000 ready-to-go presets for the price of $55, which is roughly 36 cents per preset.
Motion Bro Plugin Overview:
Motion Bro supports the latest version of Adobe After Effects or Premiere Pro. You can manually install the plugin or install it through the Adobe Exchange for a one-click install.
Installing the Plugins
Motion Bro allows for hassle-free installation of any preset pack. Within the plugin window, simply select the folder you have the files in. Once loaded, all your files will appear in the plugin window and are ready to use!
With many of the packs containing well over 500 elements, a good UI is a must. Motion Bro has a very efficient UI, with live previews and exceptional sorting. This allows you to easily navigate the hundreds of presets that may be in your library. When you find the one you like, simply drag and drop it onto your timeline.
