Thanks for your suggestion. You can do this today using an expression control and hooking up different colors to stops on a slider, for instance, but I agree it would be cool if you could give controls for limited color selection with better UI than a slider.
How would you want the limited palette/colors to display in Premiere Pro? (Ex, would it be a drop down, color chips you can choose from, radio buttons, something else?)
Hi Bela, can you please share more about what you mean? Thanks!
Hey Micah, thanks for taking the time to share this. Couple questions for you...
1. You said: "when I make new instances of it in the premiere timeline, it displays one extra text entry field every time."
>> How are you making new instances? Are you duplicating/copy pasting it, or are you dragging in another template from the Essential Graphics Browse panel?
2. Does this happen with all Motion Graphics templates (.mogrts) from After Effects, or only some?
3. If only some, do all those mogrts use the same font and what is it? If you make a mogrt with a different font, does the problem still persist?
Thanks for helping us track this down!

Hi Jason, thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback. I would love to understand more about what has been difficult in learning/transitioning to Essential Graphics and what is daunting.
The idea behind it is that the new workspace/flow is familiar from other apps like Photoshop, and that you can do more with it than you could with the Legacy Titler. Here are a few documentation pages that I hope are helpful: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/essential-graphics-panel.html
We can't comment specifically on future plans but please know that we are listening and trying to understand the friction in moving to new tools. Please share any more details you can around what has been difficult in transitioning.

Hi Ricardo, thanks for sharing your feedback. I'm not clear on your workflow, can you explain it to me more?
What kind of clip are you trying to replace with an After Effects composition - a video clip, a graphic clip you created in Premiere Pro, or a graphic that started as an After Effects Motion Graphics template?
Some Motion Graphics templates from After Effects do require Ae to be installed on the same machine as Premiere Pro in order to customize them, for example, if they use certain 3D renderers, effects, or 3rd party plugins. In this case, that would be why you are getting that notification and it indicates that you need to either install or update After Effects to match the version of Premiere Pro you are on. You don't need to purchase a license of After Effects, you can use it in trial mode even after it expires.
Hope this helps and please let us know more info so we can better help you!

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to share this issue with us. Do you happen to know if the version of Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk you are using is a PostScript Type1 font? If so, there is a known issue with Type1 fonts where they cannot load into Premiere Pro 12.1+ due to a change in a supporting technology. We are working with that team to see if there is anything we can do about it, but in the meantime, you should be able to use an OpenType or TrueType version of the font, and transfer it to Typekit for management. If you have already licensed that font, you shouldn't need to pay for the license again.
Here's more info about Typekit's partnership with Berthold: https://blog.typekit.com/2013/06/06/berthold-types-partners-with-typekit/
Finally, if you can confirm that the version you have of Akzidenz Grotesk is not a Type1 font, then something else may be going on and it would be great to get more info as we haven't heard about any issues with OTF or TTF fonts.
Please keep us posted!
Hi BSG, thanks for taking the time to file a report. Can you clarify whether you are using new Type tool (with the "T" icon) and Essential Graphics panel, or if you are using the Legacy Titler? We haven't seen other reports like this from v11.1.2 so more info about what tools you are using and anything else about your workflow would be helpful. Thanks!
Hi Matt, thanks for taking the time to report this. The fix for 12.1.1 addressed the crash on startup issue with PostScript Type 1 fonts, but as you note, did not make those fonts available again for use in Premiere Pro/After Effects. We are aware that users would like to continue to use PostScript Type 1 fonts and are working with the team that provides this technology to see if there is anything that can be done on this front.
A little background on this - PostScript Type 1 is a font format that was introduced in the 80s and was superseded by OpenType in the 90s which enabled use on both Mac & Win. Type1 fonts have a file extension .pfb, .pfm, or .afm. OpenType fonts have the extension .otf. You should be able to inspect fonts on your machine using FontBook (Mac) or your Font Settings (Win) to see what kind they are.
To work around the problem use anything from the era of Open Type (mid-90s) or newer. Typekit Font are especially easy to add and manage and most of them come free with your CC subscription.
Here is an FAQ document to help you identify and move to OpenType fonts: https://www.adobe.com/products/type/opentype/opentype-T1-faq.html
Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us and we’re sorry for the frustration it’s caused. Hope this helps.

Thanks for taking the time to share your idea. So I understand your use case correctly: You are designing templates that can have different layouts or treatments, and you want them to be limited to one of these choices/layouts, instead of being able to turn them on simultaneously?
You can do this currently with a slider ,where the different options for layouts or treatments are the stops on the slider (ex: If you have a lower third that can left, right, or center aligned, you could create a slider with 3 stops for Left, Center, or Right).
It sounds like you'd like something more like a radio button or a drop down where the choice is exclusive? Let us know what your ideal solution would be!
Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. The drag-and-drop functionality to create Master Graphics is no longer supported, but you can still make your graphic clips into Master Graphics using the menu command (Graphics > Upgrade to Master Graphic). You can also assign a custom keyboard shortcut for this action. I hope this helps!

Hi Charles, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. Are you talking about the "Sports Text Background" template? I am not seeing the behavior you describe when changing alignment but I am seeing that the big grey box doesn't have any text entry capabilities. Let me know if this is the template you are talking about, or if you are talking about a different one.

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to share this feedback. We are aware and tracking this issue. Thank you!
Thanks for your input on how to improve the browser and the details on how you are organizing your Motion Graphics templates.
Hi Simon, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. Have you tried using keyword tags as a way to organize your templates? Is there a reason why this workflow doesn't meet your needs?
There's another thread requesting more flexibility for organizing/navigating Motion Graphics templates in the Essential Graphics panel already here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/33933886-make-the-essential-graphics-interface-options-flex
If this thread covers your request, I'll go ahead and close this one.
You can still use your Creative Cloud Libraries and limit your search to Libraries or navigate to a specific Library with the checkboxes and drop down menu. I'm guessing however that your request is about the folders which are no longer visible in the new design - is that correct?
We are tracking a feature request to have the folder names you set up on disk act like keywords/tags you can enter into the Search Bar. So if you had a folder called "Morning Show Promos" you could enter that into the search bar and the contents of that folder would be displayed.
There is also another Feature Request we are tracking which requests the return of folders, icon/list view, and sorting options: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/33933886-make-the-essential-graphics-interface-options-flex
If that request I linked above covers the same things you are looking for, I will close this feature request and we'll track the other one since it has quite a few votes already. If not, let us know what additional functionality you're hoping for.
Hi Jan, thanks for your feedback.
Re:1) The new browser is search-based so you can add tags to your Motion Graphics templates in the "Info View" and use that as a way to find and manage them as a collection. In the Browser, hover over a Motion Graphics template and click on the "i" icon. Use the keywords section to add your tags. The browser will use both the title and the tags to return results when you enter something in the search bar.
You can also use your CC Libraries in the same way it sounds like you were using folders and navigate to specific Libraries to find a particular set of Motion Graphics templates. You can right-click on a template in the browser and choose to Copy to Library then select the Library. Use the checkboxes under the search bar to then navigate to that Library.
All that said, your request to bring folders back is noted.
Re:2) Can you share some more information? All the .mogrt files you have installed should be visible in the Browser unless you have a filter or search term active. More info will help us figure out what might be happening.
Re:3) When exporting a .mogrt from Premiere Pro, you can now choose to include a video thumbnail, which will allow you to hover scrub any animations in the EG browser. If you have any of the sample Premiere Pro templates installed such as "Angled Presents" or "Bold Title" you should be able to check out what this animation looks like.
All .mogrts you preview and license from Adobe Stock from the Essential Graphics panel will also include a video thumbnail.
We are tracking a feature request for adding video thumbnails when exporting Motion Graphics templates from After Effects.
Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback, Derek. I am also not a particular fan of Minion Pro ;)
Since you are familiar with After Effects, does the way they handle remembering your last font selection meet your needs, or do you need the additional control of a preference? If you need more control, any more details would be helpful.

Got it... couple follow ups:
1. Did you know you can export a mogrt to a specific Creative Cloud Library directly from Ae/Pr as part of the Export Motion Graphics template step? That might save you going to the web to organize them... you could just save them directly to the "Lower Thirds" or "Title" library.
2. Is there a reason why Creative Cloud Libraries can't continue to fill this role for you?
3. Do you like the way you can navigate to a specific Library from the dropdown menu in Essential Graphics today?
4. Do you want to let your editors manage their own system for categorizing or do you want to categorize for them and just make it easier for them to navigate to that category?
Hi Doug, I want to make sure I understand you correctly.
You can use keyword tags to do this. In Premiere Pro, you can click on the (i) icon to enter the info view for a Motion Graphics template, then add or remove keywords like "Lower Third" or "Full Screen" or even "David Jones". Then use the search bar to find it based on your keyword(s) and relevant results will be displayed.
Are you asking for folders in the Essential Graphics browse view, or something else?
If the existing workflow is not sufficient, please let us know what additional capabilities you would need.
Thanks for the info! Quick question - let's say you make a Motion Graphics template in Ae that has multiple variations of an animation or layout, controlled via expressions with a checkbox or slider. What would you want the video preview in Premiere Pro to be?
1. Would you want it to be just one of those variations, like the default settings, made into a preview?
2. Would you want to generate your own preview video (ex: so you could show the variations within the mogrt) and attach it to the mogrt when you export it?
3. Something else?
Hi Doug, this is possible in Premiere Pro v12.1 for Motion Graphics templates that were authored in Premiere Pro (Export Motion Graphics template > Include video thumbnail) or licensed from Adobe Stock within the Essential Graphics panel.
We are tracking this as a request for mogrts that are designed in After Effects, is that your use case?

Thanks for taking the time to share your suggestion, Kjetil.
It is possible today to batch export mogrts via scripting.
If you were hoping to do this outside of scripting, can you say more about the full workflow you envision here?
Hi there - thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us! I'd love to know more about what features of the Legacy Titler ("old text-tool") you are missing.
With the new Essential Graphics panel, Type tool, and shape tools in Premiere Pro, you can adjust the appearance and color of text and shapes (textures are not currently supported though), animate them, set up responsive design features that let you preserve animations and spatial relationships between elements. You can export graphics you design in Premiere Pro as Motion Graphics templates, which you can use like title presets across projects. You can also set up Master Styles for a particular project and parent individual text layers or entire graphics to a style. You can also copy/paste graphics created in Premiere Pro into After Effects and take them to the next level.
Have you tried the Essential Graphics panel and Motion Graphics templates? If not - here are some links to get you started: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/essential-graphics-panel.html
If you have tried it and found it lacking, what do you think is still missing from the Legacy Titler?
Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. We’re investigating.
Thanks for the update, Hasan. We're investigating this now and I will share an update once we know more.
Hi, can you clarify a bit more? Since this is in the Ae forum I presume you are talking about creating Motion Graphics templates in After Effects' Essential Graphics panel, but struggling with deleting the previous version of the template and managing your templates with the Essential Graphics panel in Premiere Pro? More details about in which applications and which steps are difficult would be helpful!
