Adobe After Effects Pro

In this project, you’ll generate water waves above a background image that looks like an elaborately tiled swimming pool. Whatever background graphic you use, make sure it’s slightly larger than your viewable area. Because the wave-generation effect grabs pixels from outside the frame, it’s good to have plenty of extra pixels to work with. Our layered “Cass Spa” sample logo design in Adobe Photoshop, for example, is sized at 2200 x 1200 pixels for use in a 1920 x 1080 pixel composition in After Effects.

After Effects is one of the Creative Cloud apps. You can get Creative Cloud for free, including such widely-known software as Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Encode and other. You came here to get Adobe After Effects for free, however, there are options that are better than a free 7-day trial.

Working in the Standard workspace in After Effects, choose File > Import > File and import your layered logo design from Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop as Composition - Retain Layer Sizes. Enable the Create Composition option and click Open. In the next dialog box, ensure that Layer Options is set to Editable Layer Styles and click OK. Create a new composition (Composition > New Composition) and set its dimensions to 1920 x 1080 pixels. Drag the previously created Cass_Spa composition into your new comp, turning it into a precomp. This will crop the full-size logo design accordingly.

Every day there are more and more image, drawing, and animation professionals capable of making the most of complex and complicated software such as Adobe's. This time around, we want to talk to you about Adobe After Effects, the creative composition and animation application of this brand that has managed to become a standard in its sector. After Effects is the go-to tool for motion graphics, compositing, and visual effects. There are a lot of built-in animation types, each of which has its own subset of options, so creating unique titles and animated elements in After Effects is much easier than in Premiere Pro. Oct 16, 2019 Adobe After Effects is a digital motion graphics platform used to create either simple animations or intricate graphics sequences. If you ever hear of a “motion graphics expert,” chances are they’re proficient in After Effects. The program adds motion to layers and assets that you couldn’t do in Premiere.

Motion Graphics templates are a file type (.mogrt) that can be created in After Effects or Premiere Pro.

Motion Graphics templates allow a motion designer working in After Effects to encapsulate a complex After Effects project (.aep) into a single file with easy-to-use controls that can be consumed and customized in Premiere Pro.

Titles and graphics can also be created in Premiere Pro and exported as a Motion Graphics template (.mogrt) for future reuse or sharing.

The .mogrt file format allows motion designers working in After Effects to retain stylistic control of compositions, while providing editors working in Premiere Pro the ability to customize the motion graphic in the context of an editorial project.

The author of a Motion Graphics template in After Effects can make a whole range of properties available within the template, like the ability to make dynamic changes to text, color, and layout.

When the After Effects-created Motion Graphics template is opened in Premiere Pro, all those properties are revealed in the Essential Graphics panel. The editor can then adjust the content in Premiere Pro without time-consuming back-and-forth between the applications.

  1. To add a Motion Graphics template from the Essential Graphics panel, open Essential Graphics panel and click the Browse tab.

  2. Select the Motion Graphics template that you want to use and drag it into a video track in your sequence.

  3. The Motion Graphics template creates a track item in your sequence.

    • Premiere Pro could show media as offline until the template completes loading.
    • If the template that you added requires fonts that have not been installed, you can replace the fonts with the available fonts.
  4. Select the graphic in your timeline to edit it. You can customize and adjust the parameters of the Motion Graphics template in the Essential Graphics panel under the Edit tab.

Note:

Some Motion Graphics templates (.mogrt files) require After Effects to be installed.

Adobe After Effects Program

If the Motion Graphics template you bring in to your sequence requires After Effects to be installed, or if you do not have a compatible version of After Effects installed, you see an error message:

This Motion Graphic template was created in After Effects. To use this template in Premiere Pro, please install After Effects (trial or license) and retry. Learn more at adobe.com/go/mgt.

Error message when trying to use Motion Graphics templates

If you only have Premiere Pro installed on your computer, and not After Effects, when you try to open the Premiere Pro project containing a Motion Graphics template created in After Effects, you see a notice that says that the media file is 'Offline'. To work with this project, you need to install an After Effects license (trial or licensed version). See the note above on how to do this.

It depends. Many Motion Graphics templates do not require After Effects to be installed to customize them in Premiere Pro. However, some Motion Graphics templates use effects that are not supported natively in Premiere Pro and thus require After Effects to render.

If you are using the latest version of Premiere Pro but have an older version of After Effects installed on your computer, the media file shows as 'Offline' in the sequence, and Motion Graphics templates in your Essential Graphics folder could display a warning icon indicating that an After Effects install or upgrade is required. To use these Motion Graphics templates, install the latest version of After Effects (trial/licensed version) using the instructions below.
