    Hi Mike. Maybe that's part of the issue then? They are from both Envato Marketplace and Motion Array. After looking into it a bit more, it seems like there's two levels of mogrts: 3rd Party and Adobe Stock, with the former being limiting in their behavior and customization. For instance, the free Adobe Stock mogrts that come with Premiere seem to be editable within the program window, plus have useful names to search by. The 3rd party mogrts that I bought may look cool, but the previews are not animated in the browser window, limited customization, and impossible to organize. Would you say that's accurate? If so, I think Adobe needs to put some standardization in place for 3rd party mogrt developers.

    mogrt Organization

    There's NO organizational structure in the Essential Graphics Browser. For instance, I've got numerous mogrt files all labeled "title 1", "title 2", etc... and if I search on "Clean Lower Thirds" (a package that I bought), nothing comes up. So there must be a way to organize the titles into folders, but I don't know how. I see there's a Libraries function, but why not make a way to be able to drag/drop/organize into folders for each category?


    Usability

    When I stare at about 50 static thumbnails, many of which are totally BLACK, it makes me think that the EG browser is not up to being able to handle mogrts? How do I know what a certain title transition looks like without animation to see how it functions? Clicking on the file info doesn't help either unless you want to assign a key word. But the problem with that is how do you know what keyword to even assign to a black thumbnail with the name "title 01"? At least in AE, there's the presets browser that does a great job of showing animated effects so you know what to choose.

    Lastly, there's the matter of keyframing. Some of the built-in lower thirds have that functionality and you can edit right on the screen, but the mogrts seemed to be so locked down, that they are not as useful. You can't even change the font. Maybe that's the idea behind them?

    Anyhow, it seems like mogrts aren't quite "there" yet and should have waited to be rolled out in another version. Please tell me I'm wrong here.

    Thanks
