Data-driven Motion Graphics templates allow you to quickly and accurately customize bar charts, line graphs, and more, without manual entry or deep knowledge of motion graphics.

You can create these data driven mogrts in After Effects, or get premium and free mogrts on Adobe Stock. You can access them directly from the Essential Graphics Panel in Premiere Pro.  

Data-driven Motion Graphics Templates can contain three types of data:

  • Text
  • Color
  • Numbers

The author sets the data type for each column in After Effects, and the data types cannot be changed in Premiere Pro. When unmapped, the types translate as a text string for text data, a hot text slider for numbers data, or a hexadecimal value with a color swatch for color data (for example, #EE0473). Mapped data show as labels, disabled for manual entry. For more information on creating these Motion Graphics templates in After Effects, see Work with data-driven Motion Graphics templates

  1. In the Premiere Pro Essential Graphics Panel, under My Templates, find, and drag the desired Motion Graphics template into a Premiere Pro sequence.

  2. You can review the data of the mogrt by clicking Edit Spreadsheet data. In this spreadsheet-like dialog, you can manually change the data.

    Note:

    You do not need the original spreadsheet to view and edit the data in Premiere Pro.

  3. To replace the data of the mogrt, click and drag a .csv or .tsv file (that you created with a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel) to the Drop spreadsheet here section of the Essential Graphics panel.

    Note:

    Premiere Pro automatically maps a column in the mogrt to a column of the attached spreadsheet when the headers match. To map a column that could not be mapped automatically, choose the data from the drop-down list. If the column of the spreadsheet does not appear in the drop-down list, it is because the data types do not match. Mapping occurs on a column-for-column-basis, where one column can read the data from the spreadsheet, and therefore be locked for manual changes, while another column can be unmapped to make manual changes.

  4. If your spreadsheet is already attached and mapped to the mogrt, you can later update the data in the application of your choice (Excel, Open Office, or Google sheets). Once saved there, and you resume back to Premiere Pro, the mapped data in Premiere Pro updates automatically.

  5. Select Remove to disconnect the .csv or .tsv from the mogrt. The data is not reset, but unlocked for manual entry. To reset the data, click the Reset Parameter button in the Effect Controls Panel under Graphic Parameter.

  6. You can attach a spreadsheet to a mogrt even if a spreadsheet is already attached. However, if any column of the first spreadsheet is manually unmapped, the new data no longer maps automatically to that column, even when the headers of mogrt and spreadsheet match. If you want the columns to map automatically, remove the first spreadsheet before adding a new one.

  7. When you attach a spreadsheet to a mogrt, the Row Slider is disabled. To change the number of rows, you must remove the spreadsheet from the mogrt by clicking Remove.

    Note:

    The data-driven Motion Graphic templates adapt to the change of rows depending on the composition in After Effects, from which the Motion Graphic Templates are created from. If you do not see changes made to the row number reflect in the Program Monitor, check with the original After Effects project to see if there is a limitation in the Motion Graphics Template.

Supported and unsupported features

This feature lets you bind .csv/.tsv to a Motion Graphics template in a Premiere Pro project. It does not support the following workflows:

  • Other data formats such as .txt files
  • Streaming data from websites or services
  • Data over time or sensor data in Premiere Pro
  • .csv files created with Microsoft Excel in regions that use decimal commas. These regions need to use .tsv files in Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Note:

If you are working with .tsv files, created from Excel in German (but it impacts any language that uses a decimal comma instead of a decimal point), Excel saves the .tsv files as .txt files. Change the filename extension manually to .tsv before attaching it to a Motion Graphics template in Premiere Pro.

Alternatively, you can use other spreadsheet tools like Open Office or Google Sheets.
