Step-by-Step Tutorial In Creating Text Graphics

In this tutorial, we will create animated text and titles in Premiere Pro using the motion graphic templates provided by Digital Products 669 here. Those are also known as “.mogrt” files and they are easy to use.

Once you’ve downloaded the files pack, extract the contents of the zip pack so we can now start editing.

Adding text graphic template files to Premiere Pro

1. Adding .mogrt files to Premiere Pro
When you’re already in Premiere Pro, look over the essential graphics panel where you will already see some available templates within Premiere Pro, but the one we’ve downloaded will give us more options and cooler effects.

There are 2 ways to add your .mogrt files in Premiere Pro: the fast way and the slow way. First, the slow way. In the screenshot above, you will see a button with the “+” icon on the lower right of the picture. Click that, then go to the directory of your .mogrt file and select which one you would like to add. It is the slow way because you can only add one .mogrt file at a time.

Fast way to add mogrt files in Premiere Pro (For MacOS)

  • Click the “Go” in Finder.
  • Hit the “Option” key on your keyboard then choose the “Library”.
  • Once it opens the folder, click the following: “Application Support”, “Adobe”, “Common”, “Motion Graphic Templates”
  • After that, copy the folder of your .mogrt file into the “Motion Graphic Templates” folder.

2. Using .mogrt files in your project

Once you’ve added your desired .mogrt file to Premiere Pro, you’ll just simply need to select the text effect that you want and drag it to the timeline. It acts the same way as your other media files; you can trim it, cut it, and so on. You can also change the colors, fonts, positioning, and everything.

To edit the selected template, just make sure to select the motion graphic file in your timeline, then you can customize it using the different options under the “Essential Graphics” panel. From there, you can start customizing and creating your animated text.

There are actually many customizations that you can do to the motion graphic templates. You can change the color themes for your branding, you can change the speed, fonts, remove the background, and so on.

Once you’re already done with the video and you’re now ready to export it, you would just need to export it the same way as you would normally export your videos. These text graphics perfectly go with some sound effects which you can also find in Envato’s website here. You can now create animated titles and text graphics in Premiere Pro. Enjoy!
