I'm running the latest version of Premiere Pro on my Mac and I'm trying to install multiple .mogrt files, but I don't have the "Motion Graphics Templates" folder. When I navigate to "Macintosh HD⁩ ▸ ⁨Library⁩ ▸ ⁨Application Support⁩ ▸ ⁨Adobe ▸ ⁨Common", the only folder I have is "Plug-ins". Any idea what this means and how to fix it so I can batch install these motion graphics?

Is that where your CC app says your local folder is located?

So I eventually found the folder. I had to right click on the Premiere Pro icon and then choose the "Essential Graphics" folder from the dropdown. The problem I'm having now is that when i copy/paste the .mogrt files into the folder, they don't show up in Premiere.

I believe you are looking at the wrong folder by your description of how you found it. That's the PP Program Files folder, ie: where the program resides. Typically you don't put user files in there.

Paste the below into File Explore and it will take you to the Common folder, you'll find Motion Graphics Templates in there.

%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Common

Omg  thank you!! Earlier today i accidentally unpinned this folder from my quick access. Im using windows so i wasnt sure ifit would work since you were talking to someone with a Mac but it took me rightto my Mogart folder that i had unpinned. You just saved me a boat load of time using useless google advice.

In your CC app, go to assets, files or folders and see where the Local folder is for Libraries.

You can also store mogrts in Libraries both local and CC, and I prefer Libraries in general.

If this helps, I had the same issue and had to do this to access the correct "Library" folder. See my file path below.

Temporary access to the hidden User Library

Method 1:

  1. From the Finder, select the Go menu at top of the screen, and choose Go to Folder.
  2. In the window that opens, enter ~/Library, and click Go.

Trying to unravel things for you a little...there are two main MOGRT specific directories you'll wantot be aware of:
(1) Your local MOGRTs folder (where Local mogrts get installed to in order to show them in the EGP Browser)
(2) Your MOGRT Media folder, where we put things like Clip layer media or aegraphics which are necessary for a mogrt you are applying.
