I'm making a lower third graphic that I exported as a .mogrt (from Ae v17). It has a solid rectangle that I applied a Multiply blend mode, and a Fast Box Blur (so it would have a feathered outer edge) and it animates out horizontally to the right, text pops up, then the text goes away and the rectangle collapses back to the left to disappear. I set up the text and the rectangle to be editable in the Essential Graphics panel. Everything works great when I test it in AE, however when I import it into in Premiere Pro CC 20 via Essential Graphics, the rectangle is fully visible the entire time and doesn't animate. Any thoughts?
And that rectangle is created and animated how exactly? You left out the most critical info.
I created a solid layer then drew a rectangle mask on it. I applied the blur to the rectangle mask, then animated its X scale between 2 keyframes.
If you've set the rectangle to be editable in Premiere, then you would have to do the animation in Premiere. (Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're doing.)
I exactly have the same problem. The animation I set with the rectangle (coming in from left to center) in After Effects does not show up in Premiere (Essential Graphics). The rectangle simply shows up without any animation.
It's not possible to provide any assistance without more details.
1) have you used any Expressions?
2) how are you animating your properties? Transform>Position or Effect>Distort>Transform>Position OR something else?
I created a solid layer then drew a rectangle mask on it. I applied the blur to the rectangle mask, then animated its X scale between 2 keyframes using transform position.
I have since figured out a work-around (not sure it's the best solution):
To have keyframing in a MOGRT, then you need to apply the keyframes to individual PreComps. And, if you want to be able to resize the bar’s length in Premiere, then use the Transform>Scale (or any other Transform setting like position) from the Shape Layer’s Contents Transform Rectangle setting and not the Comps Transform settings.
I have the same problem.
If I just put the source text into the mogrt everything works beautifully, but if I put position, scale or any other movement related items intot he mogrt I lose the initial animations that I entered on the masks.
Struggling to find a solution.
I've tried to use a null layer to control text position, scale, opacity etc., but no luck. Could be a bug in AE or Premiere.
Looks like I'll have to open the AE project in my Premiere comp and then change details and parameters in AE each time I want to use the template.
Mogrts are nice, but sometimes you want to tear your hair out.
You seem to misunderstand how keyframed properties work with MoGRTs in AE and PPro. Keyframed properties have keyframes at specific points in time while a MoGRT which exists in the Essential Graphics Panel (EGP), has properties, these properties do not show where keyframes exist. Hence, as part of the product design, keyframed properties without Expressions become largely unusable when placed in the EGP.
The only way to work around this issue is to learn/apply Expressions to these keyframed properties such that you can still affect the initial values related (value, time, speed etc) to the property. HTH
