Can't import .aegraphic file through Essential Graphics

I'm working with files created by another editor. He created an .aegraphic file that if I just import normally into Premiere shows up as nothing. It won't open in After Effects and after reading more about this file type it seems to be a converted .morgt file that works well when sharing projects and needs to be opened though the Essential Graphics panel. But when I go to browse to add a file through Essential Graphics it only lets me choose .morgt files - the .aegraphic file is greyed out (see screenshot).

 

File I want to import is called Highlight_Rectangle.aegraphic

The Essential Graphics browser window only gives me the option for .morgt files on that drop down menu.

 

Anyone have any idea how I can open this thing? Thank you!! - Kelly

Hi @Erickson22642791ynl3

 

.aegraphics were only designed to help collect all relevant media and assets in your project if you were moving it around. An .aegraphic lives in a .mogrt and the .mogrt file is the shareable and installable file. 

Under the hood though these are all .zip files. So if you find yourself in this predicament, change the .aegraphic extension to .zip and open the .aep in After Effects. Use the Essential Graphics Panel in AE to re-export the .mogrt file. You can choose to export it to your Local Templates Folder which Premiere will "see" natively. Of course, you can export to a CC Library ot any other folder of your choice as well. 

 

I would recommend you sort the Essential Graphics Panel in Premiere by Most Recent so you can see the newly exported Mogrt right at the top of your list. Do this by using the icon at the bottom left of the EGP that looks like 3 lines. 

 

Sorry for all the extra hoops. The person who gave you this file should have delivered it as a .mogrt. 

Cheers,

Dacia

Hi Dacia,

Is this still the best workflow for this issue? A client gave me a bunch of aegraphic files, and I'd love to save them in the Essential Gfx library.

HI @Adventure Drums

 

Oy! If the client can provide you with the .mogrt files, then I would definitely do that. Othewise, you're going to need to go through the many hoops of 

  1.  Change the .aegraphic extension to .zip 
  2.  Unzip the file 
  3.  Open the .aep 
  4.  Use the Essential Graphics Panel to re-export the project as a Mogrt 

 

There are some scripts that you can use to batch export Mogrts but I'm 99% sure you'll still need to prep the files by unzipping the .aep with steps 1-3 to use the script. 

Here is an example of one such script
