Mogrt Media Replace bug
Today I downloaded a few MOGRTs from Adobe Stock, 2 have Media Replacement options. The Media Replacement hamburger menu gives grayed out selections, no option to replace the media.
let's fix that
There are a couple of ways to replace the media even if some of the options are not available to you in the hamburger menu. (Although "Replace from Finder / Explorer" should always open a dialog where you can navigate to your file and make a selection).
You can target the thumbnail in the control and do any of the following:
1. Drag and drop your new media directly from Finder or Explorer
2. Drag and drop your imported media from the Project Panel
3. Drag and drop your trimmed media from the Source Monitor
And if you expand the Media Replacement control your drop zone will be even bigger. See the attached screenshot.
Once your media is replaced, you can also double-click on the thumbnail to open the secret sequence for that particular Media Replacement control and add effects, trim, re-time, have more access to transform controls, or even cut a micro-sequence within the allotted time for that specific Media Replacement control.
Hope this is helpful and let me know if those things didn't work for you. Please send me links to the Stock Mogrts giving you trouble, what version of Premiere you're running, and what OS you're on.
Thanks so much,
