Essential Graphics Media Replacement controls
The media replacement feature in MOGRTs is a game changer!!!
I would like to see the ability to set a few media defaults in After Effects so the Premiere user doesn't have to. Specifically, I'd like to be able to set the media to "Scale to Fit" by default in After Effects.
Also It would be nice if Expression controls kept their parent name when dropped into the Essential graphics widow in After Effects. Currently, I have to name the control in the effects panel and then give it the same name a second time when dropping it into the essential graphics pane to create the MOGRT.
So happy you like the new feature, William!!!
We are pretty stoked too!
Soooo there are new scaling preset options to Media Replacement controls in the EGP as of 18.1 but there is a bug when exporting the mogrt where Scale to Fit changes back to Scale to Fill 😿
We're working on a fix and I'll update this thread when I have the Beta build nailed down.
As far as custom names being honored on drop in the EGP... I HEAR YOU!! It's definitely in our backlog, and a much-needed improvement. Ima keep the pressure going on me end and squeaky wheel this one with devs.
Thanks so much for the feedback!
