How to add different objects to the Media Placeholder in Adobe Premier Pro 2021+.

Let’s consider adding elements from a sequence to the Media Placeholder of any preset using the VHS Pack as an example.

1. Select items

With the left mouse button pressed, select objects on the timeline. It could be anything, videos, photos, text, and any elements together. 

2. Create a new Nested Sequence or Subsequence

Then right-click and select Nest. This will create a new Nested Sequence, and all objects will be moved to this new sequence.

If you want the objects not to be moved to the new Sequence, but to remain in the timeline, then select Make Subsequence instead of Nest… In this case, the selected objects are duplicated and placed in the new Sequence, the original objects will remain in place. 

3. Import a preset from the plugin

Import the preset from the plugin, and the new Nested Sequence can be removed from this timeline.  n

4. Drag and drop a Nested Sequence into the Media Placeholder

Now all that’s left is to drag and drop Nested Sequence from the Project pane to the Media Placeholder in the Essential Graphics panel.

n (If the Essential Graphics window is blank, make sure that the preset on the timeline is selected.)

5. Final

Done, the preset is now applied to the text and the shape.  n

Pro Tip: You can change the contents of a Nested Sequence or Subsequence at any time by simply double-clicking them in the Project panel and starting editing. All changes will automatically appear in the preset.
