Using MOGRT Templates in Adobe After Effect and Premiere Pro


Templates are a great way of increasing the production value of your project and with Videvo’s vast template library you’ve got lots to choose from.

In this tutorial we’ll take you through the various methods of how to import motion graphics templates (also known as .MOGRT files) into Premiere Pro and After Effects, which ever program you choose!

Using MOGRT Templates in After Effects

Installing .MOGRTs into After Effects couldn’t be easier, its practically a double click and open approach. First, unpack the zip folder from your chosen downloaded template asset. Launch After Effects and navigate to File > Open Project. 

A browser window will open, locate your .MOGRT file and click open. At this point After Effects will prompt you to import, click import. Now you’ll find your template files in the project panel ready to work on. 

This will open your template asset as an individual file to be worked on in isolation from your main timeline project in your chosen video editing software. This is great for personalising the timing and changing the general look of each template. 

Using MOGRT Templates in Premiere Pro

Method 1: For .MOGRT Motion Graphics files

Depending on your version of Premiere you can either click on the Graphics & Titles option in the toolbar and select the second option , ‘Install Motion Graphics Template…’ where you can find the .MOGRT file and click open.

Alternatively when in Premiere, select the Graphics workspace tab and navigate to the ‘essential graphics’ panel. If you can’t see this, go to ‘window’ in the task bar and check ‘essential graphics’ from the menu. At the bottom right of this panel you should see a little plus symbol, click it to add a single .MOGRT motion graphics file.

Method 2: Importing multiple .MOGRT files at once

To add multiple .MOGRT files into Premiere at once you’ll need to add them to your local templates folder which is also known as your Motion Graphics Templates folder. Where that is located depends on your operating system, see below for the relevant path: 


username/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Motion Graphics Templates


root://Users/username/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Common/Motion Graphics Templates

This Motion graphic templates folder contains all the templates within your Premiere Pro. Once located all you need to do is click and drag your multiple .MOGRT files into this folder. 

You may notice some sub-folders here, these are from previous versions of Premiere and so you do not need to place your .MOGRTs in these. 

Now when you open Premiere Pro, you will see these newly added .MOGRTs in the essential graphics window. 

For windows users, you can also try dragging and dropping a group of .MOGRTs directly into the essential graphics window.
