Learn how to install and use Motion Graphics templates in your Premiere Pro projects.
Motion Graphics templates are a file type (.mogrt) that can be created in After Effects or Premiere Pro.
Motion Graphics templates give Premiere Pro editors the power of After Effects motion graphics, packaged up as templates with easy-to-use controls designed to be customized in Premiere Pro.
New titles and graphics can also be created with Premiere Pro’s Type and Shape tools, then exported as a Motion Graphics template for future reuse or sharing. For information on creating graphics, see Create titles and motion graphics.
Premiere Pro ships with sample Motion Graphics templates that were created in After Effects and Premiere Pro.
You can also bring in Motion Graphics templates into Premiere Pro from the following locations:
- Local Templates Folder
- Creative Cloud Libraries
- Adobe Stock
Install Motion Graphics templates
You can install a Motion Graphics template (.mogrt file) from your computer into Premiere Pro. When you install Motion Graphics templates, you copy it into Premiere Pro's Local Templates folder so that you can use it in any Premiere Pro project. It is also available in the Essential Graphics panel.
Navigate to a folder where the Motion Graphics template is saved, and click Open.
The template gets copied to Premiere Pro's Local Templates Folder and is available in the Essential Graphics panel.Note:
If a Motion Graphics template with the same name already exists, a dialog box appears prompting to either overwrite or cancel install of the Motion Graphics template.
If you try to install a Motion Graphics template that is incompatible with the version of your project, Premiere Pro notifies you that the template is incompatible. A Motion graphics template is incompatible if it is created with a later version of After Effects.
You can also install multiple Motion Graphics templates at once by dragging them from the Finder or the Explorer Window into the Browse tab of the Essential Graphics panel.Note:
Any Motion Graphics template that is stored in your Creative Cloud Libraries does not need to be installed, it is available automatically to use in Premiere Pro.

Select the template that you want to use and drag it into a video track in your sequence.
When you add a template to a sequence, Premiere Pro shows the media as offline until the template completes loading. If the templates that you added require fonts that have not been installed, you can resolve the fonts that are missing.
After adding a template to your sequence, you can customize it in the Edit tab of the Essential Graphics panel to modify its appearance.

- Choose color, source text, animation options from a range of choices provided to you by the template author.
- Edit properties such as fonts, font size, faux styles, and much more
- If the After Effects author has created templates with:
- Groups of controls: You can open and close your groups, and use the properties within the group.
- Controls for CSV (comma-separated value) and TSV (tab-separated value) spreadsheet data: You can change the data to the values you want.
- Replaceable media: You can replace images or videos with your own media.
The template properties get updated as you change the controls.
To change the duration of a Motion Graphics template, select the template in the timeline, and adjust the red arrows at the sides to increase or decrease its playing time.
Motion Graphics templates from After Effects that have been used and customized in a Premiere Pro sequence can be replaced with an updated version of the template. Hold Alt/Option while you click drag-and-drop the updated template onto the existing one in your sequence.
You can choose to have the template updated everywhere it was used in the project or limit the change to one instance. Where possible, your customizations are preserved.
