    THANK YOU! I had a graphics template that seemed to be corrupted ("media pending") and kept crashing my project. It was a freebie so I had no idea how to fix it. Opening up the AE file and saving it made it useable again.

    Is it possible that this doesn’t work anymore? Seems like adobe has secured the templates because I can’t open the .aep file. It opens in premiere with a .prproj extension but i canoot change the font there. Also I cannot seem to find the purchased templates. Anyone have any ideas?

    Awesome! Exactly what I wanted. The problem I ran into afterwards is that other comps were missing inside that file. Not sure why. :/

    Great video! I used this method to import a responsive MOGRT made in Premiere into AE but it showed up as a proxy sequence that’s not editable. Any idea how I can bring it into AE and still being able to edit it and keep the responsive character?


    Is there a way to use a Motion Graphics Template in an older version of Premiere? I’m still running CS6. Thank you!

    Wow! Didn’t know that actually existed. Amazing tutorial. I recently purchased lower third templates but the containers were not responsive. This video really helped me resize them.

    How on earth do you do this using Windows, I see a few comments saying it was difficult but none explaining how, would be useful!

    I’m on a PC, not a Mac, and the strange thing is the file extention .MOGRT doesn’t appear with these files so changing them to a .zip is not working. Any ideas?

    Premier Gal, thank you so much for such an amazing channel and tutorials! I have a little problem tho. I did everything correctly until I exported it to Essential Graphics, and when I tried to use it, Premier gave me an error message and that the file is off-line. What would you think the problem is? thank you again for this great content! 🙂
