I seem to be unable to save my intro sequence as a template; I've made sure that the sequence is selected, but the option to export remains grayed out. I'd LOVE not to have to recreate this every time!

From the screenshot you posted, I only see video clips, and no titles. There must be at least one title to enable the Export to Motion Graphics Template export option.

Do you have the graphics clip itself selected? I have this happen occasionally ... but only when I've forgotten to select the graphics clip itself.

Yes, I've selected it so that it turns gray. Then when I go up to Graphics, the option to export is grayed out. Not sure what I could be doing wrong.

So, you have a graphic clip created by the EGP, you click on that graphic, and don't have the option to export as motion graphics template?

How about dropping a screen grab in your reply box?

Was your title done in Premiere or in After Effects. From the screenshot, I suspect a mogrt made in AE, which you can't export as a mogrt from Premiere sadly.

Hey LeahW29 – Let's add your .mogrt to AE! With After Effects open, use File > Open Project to open your Finder and select the .mogrt file you want to work with. Then use the toolbar at the top to go to Window > Essential Graphics to see all the controls for your .mogrt.

 

Let us know if this helps!

I have a similar issue. I purchased some motion graphic templates from Adobe Stock, which I edited, and now I want to export my edited version of the MOGRT files. When I select the sequence in my timeline, I am unable to select "export as a motion graphic template."

 

Has anyone had any luck in fuguring this out?

 

Thank you!

did you ever figure this out? I currently have the same issue. Bought a stock template from Adobe, edited it to the style of my videos, went to export it, and it is grayed out for export. I don't want to have to do this every time.

If this is a typical purchased from stock mogrt, with user controls and such, you would probably need to do that editing of it in AfterEffects, and then you can export it as a new mogrt.

 

I don't think Pr allows changing of the parameter panels and such.

I'm not getting this. I see the answer is to add a title but the only thing I see is legacy title and I'm getting the same greyed out "Export to Motion Graphics Template eport option. Did I add the title correctly? I see a lot of people with this problem but not many answers. Thanks.

Hi James,

Sorry. Did you click with the "T" tool in the Program Monitor? That gets a title started that you can eventually save as a .mogrt (Motion Graphics Template file). Let us know.

 

Thanks,

Kevin

Thanks for the reply Kevin.

 

I have one of the free Adobe Stock assets called Gradient Swirl Logo Reveal and put my logo into it. That's what I'm trying to export as a motion graphics template file. I did click the T tool but it just brought up a text cursor. 

 

Sorry I'm a bit of a newbie at this....

James,

 

Are you in the Graphics workspace? If not, you sholud be for graphics/title work now.

 

One thing that is crucial here, that so many don't know at first: those mogrts that come with options like this one does? That don't have the "normal" edit controls?

 

RNeilHaugen_0-1644279741446.png

That above mogrt you are using was clearly made in AfterEffects, see that you don't have the normal Edit tab options for elements of the graphic that you have on the one below?

 

RNeilHaugen_1-1644279877241.png

 

If the mogrt comes from AfterEffects, you need to open it in Ae, save the changes, and export from Ae as a mogrt. You can't re-save Ae-created mogrts from Premiere, it doesn't have the exact same bits to process them.

 

And the way you tell is by looking at the Edit tab. The top image here has only those specific paramaters given to the user by the creator ... in AfterEffects.

 

The bottom mogrt was created in Premiere, and has all the 'normal' Edit tab controls for size, placing, motion, font, colors & etc. You can create a mogrt in Premiere, save it. Make changes, and still be able to save it as a mogrt.

Hello, I am having the same problem. I downloaded After Effets to try to find the template in there but I don't know how to add just the motion graphic template to After Effects. Is there an easier way to save this Essential Graphic in my favorites to be used and easily modified in the future?

I am having the same issue. I am using a Title and a png graphic that I made in motion. Maybe I am only allowed one title and cant use an image. Would really like Adobe to get rid of this greyed out problem so I can use my logo and website in a consistent motion graphic and not recreate them each time.

You can't select things on multiple video tracks. You don't need to make them that way, put them in ONE track, in the same graphic/mogrt. Then you can save.
