Bug: Premiere Pro 2019 essential graphics > font missing
In Premiere Pro 2019 the font(s) used in self made essential graphics animations are not being honoured and replaced by the system default font, even though the font is recognised by Premiere Pro.
The latest update to After Effects should resolve this issue. Please make sure to try this with the latest patch released earlier this week.
@Danny GS If dynamic link is required, which it is in the workflow you described, this is not yet fixed and that there is an upcoming AE update to fix it.
Dany GS commented
This issue was not completely solved with the patch, if you import an AE project to Premiere Pro and use the master setting to modify the text, it will change to a default font, and nothing can be done to use the right font.
i already made some test from adobe font
and personal font and other font from different sources
premiere always replace the font with animation from after effect by the default system font
Big trouble for us and big trouble in workflow
the later update didn't resolve anything on that subject
and ??? somnole check that there is no more Ctrl Z ???? is it a joke ???
I'm very excited to let y'all know that the patch is ready for you! If you don't see the update for 13.0.1 in your CC App, use the hamburger menu and select "Check for App Updates" to trigger the availability of the new version.
I do want to note that this will resolve issue for Mogrts made in older versions of AE, except for Mogrts that require Dynamic Link. After Effects did not release an emergency patch in tandem so those will be resolved in the next patch.
Thank you for all of your patience!
I too am having this issue. I drag my MoGraph template into the timeline, and it displays with the correct typeface. As soon as I click the template to edit it the typeface changes to the default typeface (Myriad).
Those still working with 2018 in the office are fine.
Having issues using Gotham font set... all styles. Had to convert all projects to current CC'19 which made replacing linked sequences a pain but I got it working.
Also having this issue with:
only getting Semibold- and none of the other previously installed fonts - so all my subtitles need to be recreated.
Dacia Saenz, I have complete projects already built out with my previous custom Mogrt templates (using a locally stored font, not an Adobe font) that have deadlines on them. I don't have the time to go back through and create every graphic using a new version of my Mogrt. This is really frustrated and unprofessional to release a new version to improve workflows but it ends up harming my career.
I'm having the same issues as well, ever since I upgraded to Premiere Pro 2019 CC. Even though I have the Adobe type fonts (Bebas Neue and Source Sans Pro, for example) that match the Essential Graphics template, this new Premiere Pro version doesn't recognize them after I keep deactivating/uninstalling and reinstalling/reactivating them. I didn't have this issue with 2018 version and I created multiple videos with the "Bold"-labeled Essential Graphics templates with ease beforehand.
So sorry for the issues you are seeing and thank you for raising it to us. Would you mind trying a workaround for me to see if we can at least temporarily resolve your issue?
1. Launch the latest version of AE (16.0)
2. Go to Menu Bar and select File > Open
3. Choose your Mogrt
4. You will be prompted to select a folder to unpack the Mogrt to, please choose your location on disk
5. This will open the .AEP up
6. Open the Essential Graphics Panel and re-export the Mogrt. (save to Local Templates Folder)
7. Launch PR and add the newly exported Mogrt to a sequence
We have had success with the correct font displaying when re-exported from the most recent release of AE. Lemme know if you see the results that you need to move forward.
Hope this helps,
Same issue at my place of work, it's a font unique to the brand and it is being replaced with a default system font.
Issue only present in 2019 edition, not the last 2018 release.
I am having the exact same issue. Help!!

The only solution I've found so far is to re-export the motion templates from After Effects and re-import into Premiere.

Hi James, we experience the issue with all non-native fonts. You can download a project file over here with two examples: https://we.tl/t-c22TUOPx9J We're working on an iMac Pro with Mac OS High Sierra.
Dave Maynard commented
I am experiencing the same problem. In my case the font in question is not from Adobe Fonts, but rather a front installed on my PC.
Tobias Tesar commented
I'm not the OP but I can confirm the problem. It happened with any font I tested so far. Bebas Neue, Waukegan LDO are two fonts definitely not working, but by the looks of it, no font is honored when using a AE MOGRT from CC2018.
What is the name of the Font you are having trouble with?
Can you send us a simple .prproj which reproduces the problem for you?
Does it happen for other 12.1 projects with Graphics that use different fonts?
Please respond if you get this and are willing to help us debug and I will send you some private contact info.
