Access properties of Premiere Pro projects

Is it possible, in Premiere Pro, to define some sort of variables or properties and access these in a MOGRT?

 

I want to be able to define different things like topic of video, presenters name etc (just once per video project), me of the project, and have my different MOGRTs automatically read these variables/properties and use them in text fields etc.  In other words I want my MOGRT variables prefilled by something defined in my PPRO project.

All of the properties that you can edit in Premiere Pro are unique. You can't add a graphic to a sequence in Premiere Pro, change the name or topic in the sequence, and have that change reflected in the original graphic (MOGRT/Extended Graphic). The link between the Extended Graphics in the sequence (timeline) and the Extended Graphics panel is not two-way.

 

You can, however, copy and paste graphics you have edited to different places in the timeline and then edit the copy without affecting the original. You can also select any Graphic you have added to the timeline and drag it to the Project folder, or create a Graphics folder inside the Project Folder so you don't have to fiddle with Copy and Paste when you need another copy in a different part of the sequence. I do this when I'm cutting documentaries or training videos. It saves a bunch of time. You can even rename them. If I'm working on a project where the same individual needs a lower third many times, I'll edit the first graphic, add it to the Graphics Folder in the Project, Rename it, and then have easy access to it anytime I need it.

Thank you @Rick Gerard.

 

So there is no way I can specify in my Premiere Pro project (or sequence) that for example

MainPresenter = "John Doe"

VideoTopic = "Wine"

VideoTitle = "French Wines"

and have my MOGRTs use these "variables" as default value for specific text objects?

With my (paid) extension Automation Blocks you can write custom automations, which can also set attributes of mogrts.

You could write a custom tool, for example, which looks at all clips of all sequences of the project and if the clip has a particular name (like the names of the mogrts which contain the presenter and topic infos) it updates the mogrt parameters of this clip as you want.

More about Automation Blocks:

https://aescripts.com/automation-blocks-for-premiere-pro/

 

and here is a tutorial showing how to create custom automations which set mogrt data:

https://docs.mamoworld.com/automation-blocks/tutorials-pr/mogrtFromSpreadsheet/

In this example, the mogrt data is read from a spreadsheet, but you can also create a script which has its own user interface where you can set the data directly.
