Looking to level up your video editing skills and workflows?
Well, we have some tools and features which can give you all of the experience points you can handle. No matter if you’re a total newbie to Adobe Premiere Pro, or a seasoned editing veteran, these extensions are must-haves for those looking to work faster and make their videos hit much harder.
From some different time-saving tools which can help with syncing your audio and video, to some high-end VFX plugins which can turn any boring shot into a spectacular one, here are our picks for the best Premiere Pro extensions which you should absolutely add today.
Right off the bat, we need to highlight our very own Soundstripe extension which is designed specifically for Premiere Pro and available on Adobe Exchange. Using the Soundstripe extension is all about helping streamline your video editing process as you can browse, purchase, and upload music and SFX directly in-app and with instant results.
Another great time-saving extension which we need to shoutout is one of many great apps and plugins from Red Giant. PluralEyes has been a must-have for high-volume video editors for years as one of the best ways to quickly and easily sync together your disconnected audio and video files.
For those who are most often working with separate video and audio recorders, you know the pain of trying to match up all of these files to get your good audio connected with the right video clips. PluralEyes makes that a cinch with the click of a button.

Moving on to some more stylish Premiere Pro extensions, the FilmConvert Nitrate plugin is quite helpful for helping video editors really make their videos shine with some beautiful camera profiles, film grains, film stocks and luts. FilmConvert Nitrate is available for both Premiere Pro and After Effects and is free to try — but requires an ultimately reasonably priced purchase for its full capabilities.

Another great offering from the Maxon Red Giant Magic Bullet suite, Colorista has been an industry mainstay as one of the best color correcting and grading extensions for Premiere Pro for many years.
While Adobe’s built-in color grading suite has certainly improved over the years, having an extension like Colorista with even more advanced and refined controls can help streamline and improve your color correction workflow significantly.
You can download the Colorista plugin here.
Finally, moving on to some of the more advanced plugins and extensions for Adobe Premiere Pro, we have BorixFX’s Particle Illusion which is a powerful particle generator that gives users instant access to tons of 3D particles, objects, and widgets.
Fast and easy to use Particle Illusion is built on fluid dynamics which allow editors the ability to quickly create photorealistic textures for motion graphics, visual effects and titles and lower thirds.

Hopefully these different plugins and extensions can give you a glimpse into just how much your video editing workflows can be improved. We encourage you to do your own research, check out plenty of different options, and ultimately have fun as you level up your skills.
