Essential Graphics (Graphics Templates) doesn't let me change the image source

Yesterday, I made an mogrt file to help me save some time. Long story short it's an animated picture that moves the same but the picture has to be different each time. And I also added some color controls to it. 
Made few versions, everything worked. Today, I update the Premiere Pro Beta and AE Beta and that file doesn't work anymore. Color controls are fine. The thing I can't replace, move or resize the placeholder image in PP anymore. 
I already tried to save it as new file on local drive and the library. Didn't work. 
Also I noticed that the graphic which was dragged down from the Essential graphics menu yesterday is still adjustable. 

Look at the picture below. Left is before. Right is today

Is it a bug or am I missing something?

Hi @coalapower 

 

I think I found what's tripping you up. You were changing out your media replacements in the Essential Graphics panel before you updated, and then updated to the new beta where we moved mogrt controls to the Properties panel and then you tried the Effect Controls panel to change out media. The Effect Controls panel as shown in your video, does show the media input control, but is not designed to work with media replacement.

You should be able to open up the Properties panel and

Hi @coalapower,

 

Sorry you're running into issues. Media Replacement inputs have the resize controls disabled at default until the Media Replacement is replaced...but if it's not allowing you to replace the image, that is bug territory.

 

Could you send me some information:

Could you also send me the mogrt and the media you use to replace so I can take a look?

 

Thanks,

Theresa

Hi! Thanks for your reply

Those are the versions I use now, where it doesn't work. 
AE beta 24.6.0 (Build 21)
PP beta 24.6.0 (Build 23)
Version I used yesterday (18 hours ago)has to be previous ones(?) I don't know exactly. I made that project yesterday and I do update beta apps everyday. 
I could not upload the mogrt file because of the limitations of this forum.

Thanks for sending that over. What OS are you using? (So far, no repro on my Win 11 machine)

 

Are you trying to replace via drag and drop from Finder/Explorer, project panel, or the hamburger menu?

If you have time, a screen recording also helps a lot to illustrate what you're doing so I can attempt the same way.

 

Thanks!

Oh sorry missed that. Yeah its Win11.
Drag and drop doesn't work even with the "working" one. Project panel doesn't work either. I have to do it manually. Like going into the "subsequence" when you double-click on the image in effects controls and then changing the image there in that subsequence. I don't know what is a hamburger menu, sorry. But that sounds fun

You should be able to open up the Properties panel and work as normal. Sorry for the confusion! Let me know if that does or does not fix the issue for you!

(Also the hamburger menu is the three line context menu (and meatball for the three vertical dots menu))

 

Cheers,

Theresa

Hi, Theresa! That is the case! Thank you! Also thanks for clearing up the hamburger one. Wasn't aware of that. 
Have a great day!

Is there a way for you to tell or show users this information because I just spent like an hour trying to find the essential graphics style drop down, and even searching videos, Reddit, youtube, etc I couldn't find this info

Hey @JENNIFER38075400lvan 

 

Thanks for your feedback! I agree that it's not apparent, and the team is talking about how we can better lead users to the new Properties panel to use their mogrts.

 

Cheers,

Theresa
