    Hi Mike,

    You have 2 options.
    1. You can install the Mogrts in the Essential Graphics Panel and use the Rename option when you right-click on the thumbnail in the browse view. (see attached screenshot)

    2. You can open the .Mogrt natively in AE by using the File > Open command (that the only way to do it). This will prompt a dialog that will ask you where you want to "extract" the Mogrt files. From here... you can rename and re-export the Main Comps and they will have the name you want.

    Hope this gets you where you wanna go!

    Oh! Out of curiosity...
    Are you attempting to rename the Mogrts from the new Creative Cloud Desktop App or the Browser?

    I think it would be worth filing a feature request if so :)

    Hi Paula,

    In order to support localization of Mogrts for different places in the world, we had to create a Display Name (what you see in the app) that was separate than the file name itself so that folks who open the Mogrt in Japanese can see the Japanese name displayed and folks who open the Mogrt in Spanish can see the Spanish name.

    Unfortunately, solving that issue for many definitely causes some pain points for users who don't have to worry about serving international teams.

    But! There IS another way to rename your Mogrts without having to re-export them every time.
    If you:
    1. Navigate to the Essential Graphics Panel within Premiere itself
    2. Click on the checkbox that says 'Local Templates Folder" and
    3. Right-click on a thumbnail...
    Then you will see an option to Rename the Display Name of the Mogrt.

    The caveate here is that the Mogrt has to be saved locally.

    If you have Mogrts in your Library that need to be renamed, then:
    1. Filter the EGP view by Libraries
    2. Multi-Select the Mogrts you need to rename
    3. Right-Click on them and choose "Copy to Local" from the menu.

    After you complete the renaming process you can copy them back to your library. Its a bit of a back-and-forth for sure, but I think it will definitely save more time than having to re-open all of the individual After Effects projects and re-exporting them with the new name.

    Hope this is helpful,
    Dacia

    Hi Ole,

    Boy this one really has got me in knots.

    I first tried to remove any time-based expressions thinking that maybe that was the cause of some buggy calculations happening when stretching the clip in PR. But that did not get me anywhere.

    I then just started hacking away at the layers and getting to the core animation of the highlight box and even then I could still repro the bad re-timing issues with no problem.

    I finally just decided to create a new comp and copy and paste the layers to start fresh and thats when AE started throwing asserts which are like tiny red flags that something has gone wrong.

    Very interesting and more to investigate... but I was ultimately able to create a working Mogrt for you!

    It seems like the original Parent Comp "highlight_text_line" was corrupted. After creating a new comp and copy/pasting all the existing layers and then adding new Protected Regions, I am getting the expected timing in Premiere that matches a non-stretched version of the original Mogrt.

    I will circle up with devs to better understand the asserts I ran into today but there is a workaround for you for now.

    I've attached the new Mogrt and some video for you to check out.

    Please let me know if it works for you!

    Cheers,

    Hi Ole,

    Thank you for your patience with this! There have been a lot of projects on the stove.

    I took a look at the .AEPs for both Mogrts, and my main theory and the primary thing that stands out as a root cause of the retiming issues is that the GMAB_DR_STARTBOARD precomp is Time Re-Mapped in the Startskilt_Broken.aep.

    Its stretched to 316.5%. Responsive Time Mogrts use Time Re-mapping under the hood and you are adding another layer of re-mapping to that. I think this is what is throwing the timing off.

    There are no time-remapped layers occurring in the Toplogo_Working.aep. All layers are stretching uniformly, in other words.

    My main recommendation would be to make the Pre-Comp layer the length of the Master Comp to maintain consistent Time Stretch Values (100%).

    The other thing to note is that the only Protected Regions that are understood once the Mogrt is in Premiere Pro are the ones that are in the Master Comp. Any Protected Regions that are set in the Nested Comps are ignored on export as a Mogrt. This might actually be the real root of your issue because AE is able to process Nested Protected Regions while PR cannot.

    I need to rebuild a few projects to confirm this but I wanted to give you some information to tinker with in the meantime.

    Please let me know if my suggestion above does the trick for you,

    Cheers,
    Dacia

    Hi Ole,

    Thanks for sharing these files and bringing this to our attention. Would you mind describing a little bit more about the failure to guide what I'm looking for? Is the issue that one of the nested comps is not respecting the Protected Regions and not re-timing?

    Also are you on a Mac or Win?

    Thanks so much and hope to have some answers for you soon,

    Hi Pierre,

    What you're requesting is the ability for Mogrts to be able to Camera Track footage and then connect your shape to one of the null targets the 3D Camera Tracker creates. This is waaaaaay more complex than having the ability to keyframe parameters once you're in PR.

    I would suggest a new Feature Request for that.

    Hola y'all... there are some technical reasons why this hasn't been possible in Mogrts yet but we've got a workaround in the oven thats almost ready to share!

    I will update this channel in a couple of weeks or so :)

    Hi Shannon!

    Me again... I did some asking around and it turns out that this is intentional! The design and idea behind the Logo.png is a placeholder for you to swap out and replace with your own logo. Its kind of like those photos when you first buy a new picture frame. Who are those people anyway?

    There IS an editable text layer in the graphic though that you can customize by selecting the graphic layer in the timeline to pull up the editing menu or double-clicking on the text in the Program Monitor :)

    Hope this helps clear things up a bit.

    Hi Shannon,

    Oh geez! Its not you... its us! 🤣

    Looks like someone forgot to take that text out of the .png image layer that makes up the blue circles. Those words are burned into the image itself and so it is in fact not editable. This slipped through the radar. Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention so we can fix it.

    While I can't fix this one for you immediately, there are a ton of free Mogrts on Stock that might be good alternatives and you don't even have to leave the app. Just click on the Stock tab in the Essential Graphics Panel and you can search for a new style of *editable* mogrts.

    Or follow this link if you would rather peruse the selection through your web browser https://stock.adobe.com/search/templates?filters%5Bcontent_type%3Atemplate%5D=1&filters%5Btemplate_type_id%5D%5B%5D=6&order=relevance&safe_search=1&k=logo&search_page=1&search_type=autosuggest&acp=1&aco=lo&get_facets=1

    Sorry for the inconvenience!

    One more thought, Holly. Is it possible that the Mogrt you are using was not exported with Responsive Time? The fact that it won't stretch and that "Reset Duration" is not enabled points to it being a non-responsive time Mogrt.

    When you put the Mogrt on the timeline does the track item have little white triangles in the corners like in this photo?

    If so then it is not a Responsive Mogrt and will need to be re-exported from AE after Protected Regions are added to it.

    Thanks,
    Dacia

    Hi Manish,

    While we no longer support the folder view of the first version of the Essential Graphics Panel, we do offer a couple of ways to organize your Mogrts.

    - You can add keywords to your Mogrts and then filter the EGP based on those keywords.
    - Some users sort and filter their Mogrts via Creative Cloud Libraries.
    But, one of the lesser known methods, "Manage Additional Folders" can be accessed via the EGP's hamburger menu as shown in the screenshot.

    This allows you to create a folder structure on disk, external hard drive, or networked drive to sort your Mogrts by project or theme-- whatever suits your needs. You can add Mogrts directly to these folders and then use the Additional Folders dropdown view to filter specific collections in the EGP once those folders are mapped.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Christopher,

    Sooo... a little bit of context for why this happens... Keyframed properties that get added to the Essential Graphics Panel as a control, lose their animation on export to Mogrt land because the control can only represent 1 value at a time. Keyframed properties by nature have multiple values so its not technically possible for that 1 control to change values over time.

    The control in PR can only tell Tiny Inception AE (nested inside Premiere Pro to make Mogrts work) "make this Opacity 60" ... it can't tell Tiny Inception AE, "make the opacity go from 20 - 60 in 3 seconds from time 1 to time 4."

    There is a workaround that is possible with a custom expressions function that will allow users to connect Expression Controls to individual keyframes and that will allow you to change those values in PR. We're creating How-To content at the moment, but I will share links to the info to help you achieve this in the next month or so.

    Hang tight! Help is on the way :)

    Cheers,
    Dacia

    Yup! And you can "pin" the shape layer to the text layer to keep them in sync with one another using the Responsive-Design Position tools right below the layer stack!

    OOORRRR
    You could put both layers in a Group and then use the Transform tools for the Group itself!!

    Also... pro-tip if you wanna get fancy... you can make any text or shape layer a mask by checking the "Mask with Text (or shape) checkbox below the shadow control. This will only affect the layers below it and / or the layers within the group ;)

    Hope you go wild and have some fun!

    Hi Jesse,

    Awesome news... this already exists! If you scroll down to the "Appearance" section of the Essential Graphics Panel after making a text layer, you'll find an option called "Background."

    Click this and you'll get a nice rect behind your text. You can change the color, opacity and padding for it too ;)

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Brian.

    I'm going to try and reproduce on my end in the latest Beta and get a bug filed if the issue persists. Which, BTW, is available on Creative Cloud Desktop app for all users to go check out and give feedback on new features that haven't been released to the public yet... (if you're interested 😸).

    Hi Brandon,

    Can you describe your issue? Are their specific effects that are not working? Are you using a graphic that you made in Premiere Pro or a Mogrt that was created in After Effects?
    A screen recording of the issues you're seeing or a project / Mogrt file would be super helpful. :)

    Thanks,

    Hi Candace,

    You can scale any shape or shape as mask in the EGP by unlinking the scale lock and then keyframing either the vertical or horizontal scale separately in the Effect Control Panel.
    The shape paths themselves can also be keyframed in the ECP by selecting individual vertices in the Program Monitor.
    If neither of these things are what you're looking for though, would you mind sending over an example of what you're trying to achieve?

    Hope this is helpful,

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to point out that for the last year or so, users can quickly add a background rectangle to any text layer by selecting the text layer, then scrolling down and checking "Background" right below Fill and Stroke in the Appearance section.
    You'll have the options to change the color, opacity, and size of the box. You can use the Text Alignment buttons below the font menu to center your text within the box, and the Align tools to center the box itself in regards to the video frame.
    If you hold down Command/ Control while you're moving the shape in the Program Monitor, you will enable "snapping" which makes it a little easier to line things up as well.

    We also do have Rulers and Guides as well. There are handy buttons for each that can be added via the Button Editor below the Program Monitor for easy access, or you can enable them via the top bar View Menu. Guides can also be saved and shared through an import / export function.

    Hope this saves y'all a few steps in your workflow.

    Also Kris and others,

    There is a much easier way to get to the .aep inside Mogrts than going through the unzipping hoops.
    Launch AE and use File > Open to select your Mogrt. It will prompt you to choose a folder where you want to "Extract" the Mogrt to and voila!
    The .aep will open :)

    We currently have bugs filed on the issue where glyphs draw incorrectly after fonts get auto-sync'd on projects.
    The current workaround is to reload the project. This should work in both PR and AE.

    I have noticed that the new Creative Cloud Desktop has to be open for font sync to work, but I have not encountered the issue where fonts are simply missing until a re-sign in, Dominic. That sounds super frustrating. Its hard to get eng support on something without an in-house repro, project, or video that shows the issue, though. If you could send a link to a project where this is happening to you or a screen recording of what you're experiencing that would be super helpful.

    Apologies for the delays in your workflows,
    Dacia

    Hello All!

    I'm very excited to let y'all know that the patch is ready for you! If you don't see the update for 13.0.1 in your CC App, use the hamburger menu and select "Check for App Updates" to trigger the availability of the new version.

    I do want to note that this will resolve issue for Mogrts made in older versions of AE, except for Mogrts that require Dynamic Link. After Effects did not release an emergency patch in tandem so those will be resolved in the next patch.

    Thank you for all of your patience!

    Cheers,

    So sorry for the issues you are seeing and thank you for raising it to us. Would you mind trying a workaround for me to see if we can at least temporarily resolve your issue?

    1. Launch the latest version of AE (16.0)

    2. Go to Menu Bar and select File > Open

    3. Choose your Mogrt

    4. You will be prompted to select a folder to unpack the Mogrt to, please choose your location on disk

    5. This will open the .AEP up

    6. Open the Essential Graphics Panel and re-export the Mogrt. (save to Local Templates Folder)

    7. Launch PR and add the newly exported Mogrt to a sequence

    We have had success with the correct font displaying when re-exported from the most recent release of AE. Lemme know if you see the results that you need to move forward.
    Hope this helps,

    Dacia

    Hi Cameron,

    There was a bug introduced in 14.0.1 that broke Text Editing via Dynamic Link. This bug was fixed in 14.0.2.

    https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/39483754-dynamic-link-live-text-broken-in-14-0-1

    There is also an older issue where Dynamic Link with PR 2020 stopped working with minor versions of AE (17.0.0 and 17.01) and requires an upgrade to AE 17.0.2.

    Would you mind upgrading to a PR 14.0.2 and AE 17.0.2 or newer and let me know if your issue persists?

    Thank you and sorry about the headaches,

    Dacia
