How to Use Essential Graphics
So the essential graphics panel in Premiere Pro here on the right is a great place where you can import a bunch of different motion graphics templates and store them and use them in your videos. But over time, like me, I have a bunch of mogrits here and I may have forgotten what I've titled them. Let me show you how it works. How do you import a mogrit?
How to import mogrt
For example, if you go to Envato Elements and you find this nice text message template pack and you want to import it into the essential graphics panel, this is how it works. After I download the text message pack, I'm going to open up my downloads folder and from the files folder, you can see that there's different folders with the different types of messages. So if I want to import these four mogrits, I can press shift and select all four of them and drag them into the essential graphics panel. But you can see they don't load up right away. You can't even see if they fully loaded. So I can search for the word text message to see if it will come up, but you can see it's not clear which one is which. And actually these are a bunch of older ones. So I might have to search for messages and search for the exact title, but it may not match. This is what I'm talking about, that over time it could be difficult to find the exact mogrit that you're looking for without having to first drag it in the timeline and preview what it looks like. This is why I recommend a free tool called AE Viewer.
The new way to use mogrts
Now AE, you're like, oh, is it just for After Effects? But it can also be used in Premiere Pro. So it's available on AE Scripts. It is by Motionland and you can just add to cart. It's completely free. You don't have to add any details. And once you install it, it will appear from window extensions. AE Viewer. So from AE Viewer, you can see all of the different folders that are on your computer. So if you downloaded from Envato Elements, you can go to the downloads folder. And for example, if I wanted to open up the purple titles that I downloaded, I can open up the purple titles folder here. And this shows a preview of all of the mogrits. And it also says that it's a mogrit file. So if I wanted to use one of these titles, all I have to do is double click and it will import into my timeline. Now, I do recommend you actually saving these on like a shared drive or something that you can access if you use multiple different devices.
Using it with Google Drive
I use Google Drive. So what I did is on my Google Drive for desktop, I actually created a mogrits folder and within the mogrits folder, I'm able to go in and organize them by folder. So here are the flame elements that I have here. And you can just easily access them from any network. So if I'm on a different computer, I can just open up Google Drive here. And if I wanted to import one of these flame mogrits, just double click to import it. And then that's when I can then go to the essential graphics panel and customize the mogrit here and do some editing to the colors, for example, if I wanted this to be a little bit more orange. So this is why I recommend AE Viewer because it's just easier to organize into folders.
Previewing videos and sounds
And by the way, I forgot to mention that from the downloads, I downloaded some camera overlays and you can preview video files and you can preview audio files too. I downloaded some sound effects so you can import and store things and access them from AE Viewer. It's almost like an upgraded media browser because you're able to actually import mogrits as well. And it just works really nicely. So you can pretty much view and import any type of file from AE Viewer. And I just find it's an easier way to organize my mogrits as opposed to using the essential graphics panel. You know, it becomes a little unwieldly. I don't know if that's the right word. It becomes more complicated.
So if you haven't tried and bought two elements for their motion graphics templates, I highly recommend it. You can sign up for a seven day free trial below, or you can use my link to get 70% off your first month. And it has more than just mogrits. You can download stock video, music, sound effects. And the best part of all is that it's unlimited and you can use it in any type of project, whatever that you can imagine. Also, don't forget that I'm giving away three licenses to elements.
