This is awesome. I have 2 questions, likely related: 1: In Ppro, within the Essential Graphics panel, how do I know the name of the AE project that created the template? And 2: Say I've put 20 copies of the template on the Ppro timeline, then the client wants to change something that requires a change to the AE file. Do I just remake the template within AE and overwrite each use in Ppro? Or is there a simpler method? Your help is much appreciated!
I ran your questions by Caleb, the author of the article as here are his answers: 1. I’m not sure that this is possible. 2. I don’t think this is possible, but you could very easily copy and paste the values between the old and new graphics. The EGP should be typically be used after graphics have been finalized, but clients can be tricky sometimes and want changes later down the road.
Thanks for the tutorial. Is there any way you have been able to control the in and out animation using (slider/checkbox) Essential Graphics? I have been trying find the best solution to pass along a preset with editable controls for the in/out animation. Please let me know! Thanks
Hi Chris, I just sent you an email to introduce you to the author Caleb. He'll be able to field your questions from here.
Hello, this is definitely a time saver and allows great collaboration, but I'd like to know if there are limits to the essential graphics panel? like, is it time sensitive?
Time sensitive? I'm not sure what that means, but there are limitations. A big one is that you can't update footage layers with new footage. You can only update properties like position, scale, colors, etc... You also can't add new keyframes so you'll need to know expressions to give the editor control if needed.
Hello. I have the same issue. AE states that this project has 132 missing files.
Sorry about that! We put a fix through to correct the file so you're all set to re-download it. If the issue persists, please make sure that the files are all collected in AE and connected.
Good morning! When open the project in Ae gives me errors and missing files... :(
