If Media Replacement is enabled within a Motion Graphics template, you can swap out specified media, such as a graphic or video clip.
Motion Graphics templates (MOGRTs) are the quickest way to to add customized graphics and animations to videos, without having to build them from scratch. MOGRTs give you the structure of an existing design and the creative freedom to customize it for your own content.
Use the slider in the image below to see an example of a MOGRT with Media Replacement. In this case the MOGRT allows the users to swap out two pieces of media: background video and the foreground graphic.
There are two ways to replace media in a MOGRT:
- Drag the media asset (graphic, still image, video) from the Project panel or the Media Browser and drop it on the thumbnail. You can also drag media assets from the macOS Finder or Windows Explorer onto the thumbnail. Premiere Pro automatically adds the asset to your project.
- Click the Hamburger menu next to the replaceable media thumbnail and click Replace from Finder. Navigate to the saved media location and select it. The MOGRT will update with the new media and the asset will be added to your Premiere Pro project.
After you replace the media in the MOGRT, you can use the controls underneath the thumbnail in the Essential Graphics panel to adjust position, scale and rotation and to add a time offset (such as, adjusting the start time of a video within a MOGRT) to your media.
Edit the video like you would edit any other sequence. Some edits you can do are applying effects, adding audio, or additional images on the timeline.
Depending on the sequence that you are working with, you may see diagonal stripes on the timeline. These stripes indicate that there are frames outside the in/out range of the original media.
Do you know you can also quickly and accurately customize bar charts, line graphs, and more in MOGRTs? Learn more on how to work with data-driven MOGRTs.
