We DESPERATELY need a better way to organize objects from within Essential Graphics.
A few ideas for improvement: 1)Allow a way to hide/remove graphics that are native/included with PP. You can delete them in Common but they always come back.2) Allow for a bulk organizing tool for grouping together types of graphics. i.e. Lower Thirds, Call Outs, etc. The tag feature is way too cumbersome and time consuming. I have amassed several hundred graphics and tagging each one of them is just an enormously wasteful and inefficient use of time. A simple fix would be to create a bin system like the Project window. Create a bin, drag and drop. All done. Come on guys! this one is kind of a no brainer. Let us have it, pleeeeeeeeaaaaseeee!!
If you want to delete all of the Mogrts that come pre-installed with Premiere Pro (and AE), all you have to do is make sure that the .txt files in the Common / Motion Graphics Templates folder stay in the folder. (please see image attached)
If these are in that folder, then the "factory mogrts" won't be re-installed at launch.
You can add keywords to multiple mogrts at once, by selecting as many as you want in the EGP in PR.
There are also 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!
Thank you for taking the time to send these suggestions to us. In regards to the first request, there are already a couple of ways that you can remove your factory mogrts from your local system.
The first way is to delete them from within the Essential Graphics Panel's Browse tab. Make sure Local Templates Folder is checked on and then just right click on a mogrt, or a selected set of them, and choose Delete.
The second way is through the Common > Motion Graphics Templates which you have already found on your system. Delete any mogrt you want gone but DON'T DELETE the text files in there which have names like PrMogrtInstall13-0-0.txt. As long as those .txt files remain, the missing factory mogrts won't re-install when PrPro or Ae is launched. If you ever want your Pr and/or Ae factory mogrts back, simply delete the corresponding .txt files and the factory mogrts will re-install the next time you launch the app.
