Media Replacement used in multiple comps in a Mogrt

I would like to replace one still in a After Effects project that is used in multiple comps, to save as a Mogrt.  I have set up a menu that uses one of 12 comps at a time. Some of the comps use the same still, but I need to be able to use Media Replacement for that still while in Premiere.

I cant figure out how to make the ONE media replacement change in ALL of the comps.

Select the still you want to use as the replacement inside the Project Panel. Hold Alt/Option Key and drag over the old still frame inside the project panel. All the instances of the old still will be replaced with the new image. Be sure that your new still matches size and resolution to avoid problems.

 

ANother way to do it is to select the old still and go to File > Replace Footage > File. Then select the new still and it will be replaced inside your project.

Jose, I'm in After Effects, trying to add the ability to add 1 still (graphic) to the Essential Graphics Window, so someone in Premiere (using this new Mogrt) could change 1 still, that's in multiple comps with 1 Media Replacement. I'm having trouble pointing all the still to each other.

Can you place the image in a precomp and then use that precomp in all your other comps?

That didn't work Mathias,  but thanks for the suggestion.

I can do what I'm trying to do with text, by using an expression to tie all the text layers together. When I add the source text to the Essential Graphics window (Which will eventually be editable in the Mogrt in Premiere) that works great.

The problem is, I can't figure out how to point a Still (graphic) and tie THEM together, so I can add a Media Replacement (for that still) to the Essential Graphics window (Which I want to be replaceable in the Mogrt in Premiere) So the still changes in Multiple Comps.

I hope I'm explaining this enough, because it sure is hard to write what I mean. (HA)

What exactly is the problem with the precomp approach?

Say you used the image 6 times.

Then you could right-click on the image file in the project panel and choose "Replace with precomp (used 6 times)" and after you did that, the image is just used one time (namely inside the new precomp that this command created). Then you can add this image in the precomp to the Essential Graphics and when you change it, it changes inside the precomp and hence also inside any other comp using this precomp.

I tried that.  When I exported it as a mogrt, and opened the mogrt in Premiere, and clicked on Media Replacement, it only changed the one that I dragged to the Essentials Graphics window in AE.  Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

It works with text because I can use an expression to tie them together, but not with a graphic.
