BUG Importing AE Essential Graphics & REPLACING videos the timing is lost.
BUG. When replacing a video in Premiere pro 2021 via the essential graphics panel, the video does not start at the timecode as was set in AE
Wow! A hidden treasure! :)
Now that we have that part clarified... I have great news for you! In the case that you don't want to go and change the AE design itself, you can do all kinds of fancy things in Premiere itself!
Simply double-click on the Media Replacement Thumbnail in the EGP in Premiere after you drop the new media in-- this will open up a hidden sequence where you can do anything you want in that sequence! You can add effects (I added Ultra Key in the example in the attached image), and you can retime! You can even make another edit with multiple clips in the time allowed by the "time container" of the MR Control. The danger stripes on the right in image 2 show you how much time you have to fill.
Hope this helps!!
Hey Dacia! Okay, I understand now. The replaceable footage must be slided to the point the video will start... Thank you for the clarification! Of course, it's pretty difficult to rematch all keyframes & effects to the placeholder composition of the footage, especially when this comp is nested within other comps and also slided in time... I think a quick workaround in Premiere Pro essential graphics panel would be to be able to also slide the footage's timecode both directions (not only positively) and so easily fix the starting point of the replaced video... This could be a feature request! Thank you very much for your help!
The image you shared shows that the Media Replacement layer starts at time 0:00.
That's why the footage you replace is starting at the beginning of the Mogrt.
If you move the beginning (In-Point) of this layer to where you have your CTI, then the media in Premiere will begin at this point in time instead of at the beginning of the Mogrt.
Again, it can't be trimmed... it has to actually begin at a later point in the timeline. It should look like the image I shared that says "Real In-Point" and not have a faint layer color to the left of the CTI.
Hey Dacia, no, the original video is not trimmed. (check attached image) Neither the layer containing it. Also, no "trimmed layer warming" appeared.
It goes well to Premiere Pro and plays at the correct starting point, but when media is replaced with another video, then it starts at the beginning of the sequence and so when it appears later in the sequence, only the last frame is visible & frozen (because it has already ended it's duration)..
Is it possible that the Media Replacement Control layer is trimmed, meaning that the In-Point for the layer that was used to create the Media Replacement Control was moved and there is a faint hint of the layer color to the right like in the first image? Did you see a warning like the 3rd image attached here when you exported the Mogrt?
Trimmed layers are not supported and Premiere will consider the beginning of the original media the start for the replaced media.
If you move the real In-Point for the layer, then the off-set should work in Premiere when you replace the media.
Hope this helps,
