Need a better way of saving Essential Graphics
I do a weekly real estate show and exclusively use legacy title as once I type the homes address and price, I can name it and save it in a bin for graphics. Homes may be on for a week or two, then go away only to return for another week or two. Legacy title saves me time by not having to retype all the information every week or if I have a price change it's instantly updateable. Since Legacy Title is going to go away, I'm trying to figure out a work flow for Essential Graphics Panel and am not finding anything as convenient as the work flow with legacy title. I work with up to 400 different homes at any one time with 6-10 new homes added every week, being able to quickly call up the home and edit is important. Please add an easier way to save your graphics than you have now in the Essential Graphics Panel.
There are a couple of options that we recommend for helping folks keep their Mogrt collections organized.
You can always save your licensed Mogrts to CC Libraries, which now have the option to use sub-groups. Using sub-groups will require adding Mogrts to your sequence via the Libraries panel though.
Alternatively, if you want to keep things managed with a little more control over the actual files themselves, you can use the "Manage Additional Folders" option in the hamburger menu of the EGP. This allows you to move collections of Mogrts into specific folders and create custom pathways to those folders, locally or on a server. You can also choose to export Mogrts out of AE directly into these folders once they are set up. You can filter the EGP by whichever folder you need to focus on for that particular project.
Another alternative to return to having a more traditional folder structure is to install Premiere Composer.
Mr. Horse makes this really rad free plug-in that comes with a ton of free Mogrts, but most importantly has a panel that organizes your content, including Mogrts into a more traditional folder structure.
Mr. Horse is an incredible 3rd-party developer and has a long track record of making complimentary tools for After Effects and Premiere Pro.
Hope this helps!
