Thank you all for taking the time to contribute here. The feature request I submitted some time ago is still there and we have implemented some improvements but not all of them yet. We understand that the Legacy Titler cannot go away if there are still bug gaps in a lot of users' workflows. For now, let me clarify some things to make sure you understand you available options right now.
(1) Gradients - gradients for Shape layers are already possible with Pr graphics. This includes multiple stops, angle control and opacity gradients. Simply select a shape, click on Fill in the EGP, and then use the Gradient fill pulldown in the upper left of the Color Picker. You will then see UI that will let you set Color and Transparency stops as well as a start, end and mid point for your gradient.
(2) Layers with texture fill - textured fill is possible by means of our EGP masking feature. Put an image (still or video) under your Text (or other) Layers as a Clip Layer in the EGP. Select the top Layer and then check on Mask with Text (or Mask with Shape) and you will now have a layer that has a textured fill. (see attached screenshot) Put the two layers inside a Group in the EGP and the masking will not affect layers outside that Group.
Note; You can make your own Gradient for Text by using the same basic steps I just described for Texture fill. Just use a Shape with a Gradient fill as your underlying Layer instead of a clip Layer.
These are all good requests, thanks for sending them to us. Most of these we've heard from our Japanese community and other users before, but to be sure we have them covered can you clarify some things?

(2) Scene features - what do you mean by this? Please explain, with a screenshot if needed.
(3) Multi shadows - can you please send me a real world sample of some titles with Multi Shadows? We recently added multiple strokes so I'm not sure whate else is needed for multi shadows.
Thanks in advance. I'll make sure stories are in place for the remaining things you need to be free of the Legacy Tilter for good.

In that case, please help me understand just what it is you want to do.
It sounds like maybe you want to be able to paste certain attributes (like a layer's position or scale) including any associated keyframes from one graphic layer to another. Is that correct?
If you have transform keyframes for things like position or scale, you should be able to copy/paste those between layers. But you have to do your copying and pasting within the Effect Controls Panel (ECP) for it to work.
I am unable to repro this in Pr 12.1.1 x 10. Can you tell me a bit more about what you are doing?
Here is what I did:
1. Use the Text tool to make a new Graphic + Text Layer in the Program Mon (PM)/Timeline (TL)
2. Apply Gaussian blur by drag and dropping onto the Graphic in the TL
3. Make sire the graphic is selected, go to the Effect Controls Panel (ECP)
4. Find the gaussian blur (turn up its blurriness) right click > Copy
5. Repeat step 1 to make a new Graphic + Text
6. Back in the ECP > Right Click > Paste
The Gaussian blur is pasted in (with correct blur value) and not other Text or other effects are pasted in with it.
Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. We’re investigating.
Pr Graphics have fully supported Arabic input since Pr 12.0 at least. If you are using that version of Pro (or earlier) and you still see a problem with Arabic input, can you please tell us exactly what steps you are taking and what the results of those steps are? Screenshot images and other specifics help.
An AE mogrt has to be designed to support Right to Left (RTL) initially. Ones designed for Left to Right (LTR) cannot support RTL. This sounds like a request to make Arabic mogrts available in some way, like via Adobe Stock. It does work if you have an Arabic mogrt to start with.
Is this happening only with AE mogrts?
If so, it needs to be created in MENA/Indic in AE.
How to enable other language support:
1. Go to OS System Preferences > Keyboard > Input --> Add Arabic (or whatever other language(s) you want to the list.
2. Once your system is enabled for > input source, you will see an input source control button on the right side of the OS's Main Menu bar --> Change that to Arabic (or whatever input you want to use)
3. Back in Pr, go to PrPro CC menu > Preferences > Graphics and enable Text engine: "South Asian and Middle Eastern" (see note 1 below)
4. Add a text layer, then choose your Font in the EGP. Example: Choose Adobe Arabic font from the Font menu (see note 3 below)
5. Start typing in the PM
1. Open Windows Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Language --> Add Arabic (or whatever other language(s) you want to the list.
2. Once your system is enabled for additional language prefs, you will see an input source control button on the right side of the Windows taskbar --> Change that to Arabic (or whatever input you want to use)
3. Back in Pr, go to Edit menu > Preferences > Graphics and enable Text engine: "South Asian and Middle Eastern" (see note 1 below)
4. Add a text layer, then choose your Font in the EGP. Example: Choose Adobe Arabic font from the Font menu (see note 3 below)
5. Start typing in the PM
Note 1: Ligatures and Hindi Digits can be unchecked, also paragraph direction can remain Left to Right, but you can change it to RtL if you know the script you want is an RtL language.
Note 2: You may need to sync fonts like Adobe Arabic or Tamil, in which case you need to reload your project before you'll see them int he Font list.
Does that make it work for you? If so, I'd like to close this request because it's already possible and has been since graphics 1.0 (PrPro 11.1). If not, can you please provide me some more info about how you are unable to input Arabic text and see it in the Program Mon?
Thank you for taking the time to submit this, Jarle. The way I read this, it is a request for a new built-in Render and Replace / Quicktime preset in Pr, and not necessarily specific to Graphics, correct? If so, I will try to get this routed to the right group internally. Did you also submit a request for this on the Beta site? It's fine if not. I just need to identify one work item for internal use.
What exactly did you mean when you said, "When I click "add to library" and select a library"?
I'm guessing you were in Pr's Essential Graphics panel > Browse Tab, and then you right clicked on a local mogrt and chose Copy to Library ? <Library name>? But I'd liek to be sure you are not in some other interface area.
Also, was thew mogrt you clicked on a local mogrt on your system, or was it perhaps a mogrt in a Library or on Stock?
Finally, are you sure that you have read/write privileges for whatever Library you are trying to copy your mogrt into?

Google translate has a 3900 character limit, but I ran what I could through it. I think this is a request for the Legacy Titler to not go away, or for Graphics to have additional telop features added in order to bridge that gap. At least that's what the first several paragraphs seem to indicate. I'm migrating this to the existing request for not eliminating the Legacy titler so that all the votes and comments will count in one place.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I'm merging this to a related thread about not getting rid of the Legacy Titler (you know it's still there in the current Pr version (as of Pr 12.1.2 at least) right?). By merging things like this, we can keep all the votes and comments in one place where they can count the most.
@Joel Ferland You can make clip layers to insert your logos in the same way using Graphics > Rolls. Then you can position them wherever you want within the Roll and they will roll right along with the rest of of your text/shape layers in the same roll. You can make your program monitor bigger by just clicking and dragging the panel edges out. Or make it full screen by pressing "~" (without the quotes) and toggle back to your regular workspace using the same key whenever you want.
@morgan To make a roll, make a new Graphic + Text/Shape/Clip Layer(s) in Pr. Make sure the Graphic is selected, but its individual layers are not. Click on Roll in the EGP.
The animation of a Roll happens automatically. Duration and speed depend on how long your content is, how many frames the Graphic clip is, and what roll options you've set in the EGP. You can still edit your roll as much as you want after making it a roll so don't worry about finishing it all first.
I've made multi and mixed column rolls with many layers entirely inside Pr using text, shape and clip layers with pinning. But for really complex rolls, I've found it easier to design it all as one big psd/png file in Photoshop, then just add that image as a Graphic clip layer and enable that as a roll. That method makes it a little harder to edit back and forth between Ps and Pr after you make the Graphic, but if you don't care about that and you just want all the imaging and graphical power of apps like Ps or Ai for the actual authoring and design part before you go to Pr, it's a good way to go.
Finally, I have to disagree that Pr Graphics are largely focused on Ae templates. (read my previous response to Jason to understand the difference between aegraphics and prgraphics) If you just want to make Titles in Pr, that's what the Type/Shape/EGP and other tools are for. Making Titles that way does not need to involve Ae at all. If it seems like all the focus is on Ae, that's because a lot of users seem to prefer designing all their Motion Graphics in Ae even for relatively simple ones that they could easily do in Pr using Graphics tools and Effect Controls.
@jason ross For multiple lines of text in Pr, use the title tool, click in the Program Mon (PM), start typing, hit enter for a carriage return tot he next line. Or click and drag in the PM not make a 'Text in Box' so that you can just enter your text and it will wrap within the box boundaries.
Once you have the text you want, use the EGP edit tab to change your font, size, color and many other things for selected text or shape layers. If you are not seeing all that in a pretty intuitive way, it makes me thing that you are either not using the Essential Graphics workspace, or else you are using aegraphics instead of prgraphics. Ae graphics are what you get when you apply an ae mogrt in Pr. Pr graphics are what you get when you wither apply a pro mogrt or make a new Graphic + Layer using the type or shape tools. Ae graphics are much more limited in what can be edited in the EGP and the Ae user decides what to make editable in Pr at all. prgraphcis are always fully editable in Pr.
Thank you for your response @Jason Ross
We understand your frustration.
Any further feedback from others? Especially for things you might need regularly which you can only do in the Old Titler.
Fair enough. Thanks for the feedback. Can you tell us a little more about what you can't afford to lose if we were to remove the Legacy Titler at some point? Perhaps some of those who voted this up could chime in as well.
I'm having a hard time seeing what the difference is between your notWorking... and working screenshots. Can you explain the result a little more and ideally send me some simple steps that may allow me to reproduce the problem myself? Also, does it matter whether you are in a GPU (Metal, OpenCL, CUDA) rendering mode or software-only rendering?
Gradients (including opacity gradient) on shapes can be set up using PrPro's Graphics tools and from there can be exported as mogrts for use in Rush. You may also be able to find some Adobe Stock templates which use shapes with gradients. You cannot, however, set up your own gradients in Rush's Titles workspace.
Thanks, Annika. Just one thing to clarify... The Rectangle tool is actually nested under the Pen Tool by default. But once you change it is is sticky.
You can’t import mogrts using the Libraries panel in Pr or Ae. You need to export them to a Library or use the Install MOGRT button EGP and then Copy them to a Library from there. Also, you can’t use mogrts in AE so they don’t show up in Ae's library panel as enabled.

Thank you for your submission. Please help me make sure I understand you correctly:
You would like to have the the ability to convert a corner vertex into a curved one by clicking on it with the pen tool in a modified, like you can with the Anchor Point Tool in Illustrator?
Thank you for letting us know about this. Someone from our Digital Video group will be reaching out to you soon for more info.
I cannot reproduce this locally in Pr 14.0 x 572. Can you provide any additional steps or other info?

This is a good request, well thought out. Thanks for making it. I'm merging it with the existing media replace topic in the Essential Graphics section so that we can keep all the votes in one place.
Do you mind if I move this to an existing request for the same thing over on the Pr Product / Essential Graphics space? It helps to keep the votes in one place when we can.
Thank you for the good suggestion. I merged your request into and existing one so that votes and comments can be consolidated into on thread.
Thank you for the fine suggestion, Zach. I am going to merge this into an existing suggestion for the same thing so that we can keep track of the total number of votes and comments in one place.
Also, if possible, please fill out this survey on loading media into mogrts: https://adobe.allegiancetech.com/surveys/GMHAJS/
Thank you for your submission, Eduard.
For Graphics in Premiere Pro (including ones that were Exported as MOGRT), video or still media is added to Graphics in Pr as clip layers. You can remove and re-order clip layers directly in the Essential Graphics Panel (EGP). You can add new clip layers to the EGP via drag and drop from the Project panel to the EGP Layers pane, or choose Graphics > New Layer > from file... to import media and add it as a clip layer. Then you can re-export he Graphic as a new MOGRT if needed, or just save the project with those changes.
For MOGRTS that were authored in and exported from After Effects, we recognize the need for a feature to allow users to replace media from within Pr. I can't say much about if or when that will happen, but we understand your use case and value your feedback.
Just to be clear, when you say "graphics" do you mean aegraphics (Graphics you get by applying a mogrt which was authored in Ae) or prgraphics (Graphics + Layers you made in Pr or got by applying a mogrt which was authored in Pr)?
What you're seeing is compression artifacts. Most major compressed video codecs are perceptual. These codecs have to choose which details to preserve, and the green channel (which corresponds roughly with the Y channel) preserves much more detail than blues and reds. Perceptual codecs like H.264 have always been much worse on text than images, and particularly on text with no green channel.... like bright red text. (RGB 255,0,0)
For more info, see my post on page 3 of this community forum thread:
The image attached by the Original Poster of that community forum thread is no longer in that location, so I can't see what the bad result looks like. Also, I'd need some kind of media and probably a screenshot of export settings to have a chance of repro'ing it myself. If anyone can provide me with those things I'll be happy to try it out on my own systems.
Q: Why doesn't the Show Guides toggle key shortcut work globally, no matter what pane is active, on the Program monitor, where Guides live?
A: The short answer is because that's how shortcuts work in Pr. Either it is a global shortcut, or it has to be coded into each panel that wants to support it. It is a reasonable feature request that we add support for the shortcuts to the Timeline. I can get that submitted for you.
Thanks for explaining your workflow. I understand that you use the Timeline to select the clip you want to move, but don't you then have to go to the Program Mon to move it toward a guide anyways. It's either that or changing hot text in the ECP or EGP, right? And the latter would not let you snap to guides anyways. Or, if you really don't want to click into the PM a lot, try using the Keyboards Shortcuts for ProgramMonitor focus, which is Shift + 4, or you can map your own.
Thank you for your feedback. A lot of shortcuts don't work globally because if they all did there would be a lot of collision. There are a couple of shortcuts that you should know about when using guides:
(1) [Cmd/Ctrl + ; ] this is the default keyboard shortcut for turning Show Guides on and off. You can also map your own shortcut in the KBS dialog.
(2) Program Mon > Button Editor has buttons for Show Rulers and Show Guides that you can add to the Program Monitor controls
I realize that neither of these offer the global access you're asking for, but they'l at least save you time of going into the View menu each time. Just hit the the Show Guides shortcut each time you go into the Program Mon, which you have to do to directly move your selected clip around anyways.

Thanks for taking the time to share your request. Let's see how it does in votes here.
If you move the project and media and then open it in Pr, does it relink the mogrts automatically? If not, then there may be a general relink bug with mogrts.
Unfortunately there is no way to increase the text size for UI controls. Under application Preferences > Appearance there are minimal controls for Brightness, Highlight Color, and Focus Indicators. It's not exactly what you want but it might help.
