Good morning,

I have lots of different essential graphics:

  • some I bought
  • other I made via AE

Would you know a way to organize it, in folders or libraries.

to organize in a clean way?

Thank you for your help,

J.

PS: I tried different ways, but could not find a good solution.

I found a solution as I further research (trial/error)

one can:

  1. open "library" panel
  2. create a new library
  3. on "essential graphics" panel
  4. right click on essentia grpahics item > copy to library > choose library (just created in the library panel)

No folders like the previous version, but good enough for now.

You can use multiple Libraries, you can use Local Folders. And both.

Select which you want available in the browser in the EGP, and of course choose which are showing in the Library panel separately from the EGP, so you could have 2 different groups showing at any one time.

Thank you for taking the time to answer and sorry I have not answered earlier. I am still having issues organizing my libraries but I will first experiment a bit more before taking to much of your time with trivial question.

thanks again for your help

Ask away anytime. Adobe does have some material on using and organizing Libraries. Search the Help for it.

So did they get rid of folders? My essential graphics panel looks like a huge mess and I don't want to use libraries because that shows up in other programs that don't need them like photoshop and then it takes 20 years for it to open because it wants to load up libraries

No, they didn't remove the use of "local folders". In the menu for the EGP (three little bars icon) you have the option to manage folders.

You can plop mogrts in folders on your computer, then use "manage folders ..." to add them to the dropdown list of "Local folders".

You can show individual folders in the EGP browsing view.

I do not have this option and I'm using the latest version of Premiere, that is why I asked.

They are organized by folders when I look in my program files, but show up as a jumbled mess in Premiere with no way to change the view

Thank you

I've since 'copied' my stuff into libraries where they can be organized, but found it daunting and a waste of space that gigs and gigs of data is just duplicated instead of sourcing it from the main file

Thanks for including a screenshot. Since you said you are using the latest version (Pr 13.0.3), the shot you took makes me think you are just not clicking in the right place. You want to find "Manage additional Folders..." in the hamburger menu at the top of the EGP. Like this:

EGPManageAddlFolders.png

That menu item will open a dialog which will let you Add a folder from a local or network drive. Once one or more folders have been added, a pulldown will show up next to 'Local' in the EGP Browser. This pulldown will let you filter to show mogrts within one or more local or network folders, like this:EGPLocalPulldown.png

I believe using CC Libraries + tagging your mogrts with keywords is the best way to keep your EGP organized and find things quickly. If you can't or don't want to use Libraries, then use the Manage Folders feature that Neil mentioned and still use keywords to filter your results.
