Having Trouble Creating a Bar Graph Template for use in Premiere Pro

I'm having some difficulty creating a bar graph template that I just made in after effects.

 

There doesn't seem to be an option to set a keyframe in my after effects template so I cannot change the graph over a period of time in premiere pro. In after effects, these are the settings I have so far. I don't see an option to set keyframes in after effects when I want to drag it into the essential graphics box. What am I missing here?

You'll need an Expression to accept input via slider and then to animate the value.

Here's an Expression

//KF01 is your start value
KF01 = 0;

 

// KF02 is the value linked to its slider
KF02 = thisComp.layer("Controller").effect("Bar 01")(1);

 

// starTime defines the starting time of the bar's animation
startTime = 1;

 

// endTime defines the ending of the bar's animation
endTime = 2;

linear(time,startTime,endTime,KF01,KF02)

------------------------------------------------------

You will of course drag the Slider Control, named "Bar 01" in my example, into the Essential Graphics Panel.

 

 

The image below shows HOW to set up one bar -

Do take note that this is a rather simplified Bar Graph. A more robust Bar Graph will allow for negative values as well as a number to normalize values so that a graph containing bars with extreme values between the highest and lowest values can be accomodated in a visually elegant manner. HTH

Without any info on how you actually create the bars nobody can tell you much. Those cropped screenshots are useless.

I watched this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0amv44UwAwg&t=4s&ab_channel=SonduckFilm and to create my bar graph.

 

This is how the bar graph looks like:

 

contentcreator30_0-1601484905197.png

I used the pen tool to create the first line, then duplicated it and increased the stroke width to create the bar graphs. Then I added in trim paths into the bar graph. Next I created a null object and then went into effect -> expression control and added in the slider control to the null object. Then I went back into the trim paths and clicked on the end stop watch and parented it to the slider. So now the slider controls the trim paths. Then I duplicate the bar graphs and under expression, I changed where it says bar one to bar 2, etc. Then I set keyframes for the sliders in order to animate the graphs. 

 

This is what the expression says thisComp.layer("Control").effect("Bar 5")("Slider"). Where it says Bar 5, I substituted that with whatever bar I was working on.

 

Is there any other information that you need?

There are many ways to do this and it'll take a long time to explain it in a forum unless you have a very specific issue. I suggest you head over to Adobe Stock and download one of their free MoGRTs – I'm pretty certain I've seen at least one Free MoGRT on bar charts. You can then look into how the author created and animated their bar chart.

My issue is that I cannot create keyframes with my bar graph once I drag it into premiere pro. I can only set one specific point with the slider control and it remains that way in premiere pro. I would like to be able to animate the bar graph so that it goes from zero to say 50% over the course of the bar graph animation.
