Is there any way to preview the animation of the various motion graphics templates in the Essential Graphics panel? No way to know what the templates contains and/or does.
Drop 'em on a sequence & play them ... only way to do it.
Thanks, Neil. Too bad the only option is sooo 90's.
Remember this EGP is in its infancy ... it's not a finished tool, probably will always be expanded, realistically.
So ... feature request away, as they've actually had design engineers on this forum (very rare) asking for the requests for this ...
There are a few new things they discussed in the "rollout" demo at IBC a few weeks back, so some things will change whenever the drop the next release. Don't know the full list.
In 2020 is still the only way, right?
Some do have a preview when hovering from left to right.
2022 and still no live previews for essential graphics?
There are a couple of things you can try. One is to hover and scrub over the graphic icon in the Essential Graphics panel. Another is to click the "i" icon and open the graphic in its own panel. Click on the graphic and press the Space bar. It will play the graphic back if your system is powerful enough. Does that work for you?
Quick previews of AeMoGRTs in PPro, assuming you are talking about AeMoGRTs, requires the MoGRT Developer to create/render the preview and to then link the Preview to the MoGRT file. At this point in time, the EGP in both PPro and AE do not support previews created in this manner, or any previews created and linked to a MoGRT. Additionally, you will have to use a third party tool such as AepToMoGRT (from aeScripts)
to create and then link/embed the Preview File with the MoGRT. Lastly, since the EGP does not support such previews, you will have to use AeViewer https://aescripts.com/aeviewer/
to view the preview. On the PLUS side, AeViewer provides lots of features such as organizing MoGRT in Folders, in the OS.
AeMoGRTs have received an exceptional performance boost in PPro V23 - up to 2x render speeds. I've even developed feature-rich AeMoGRTs that perform in realtime (under a vast variety of settings) in PPro - https://www.toolfarm.com/buy/broadcastgems_essential_mogrts_pack/
AE Viewer is free? Cool!
AeViewer is free. There's an AeViewerPro, which is a Paid version. And speaking of free, here's a free MoGRT from the Essential MoGRTs Pack - Animated Shape
Lots of features and plays back in realtime!
Animated Shape MoGRT - FREE
NOTE - an excessively large shape may hamper real-time preview
