.PRTL File Extension
What is a PRTL file?
A PRTL file is a video title created by Adobe Premiere Pro, a professional video editing application. It contains the text and styles for a video title, which may be used for headings, intros, lower-thirds, captions, and credits that appear throughout a production.
In Premiere Pro, titles save you time by saving stylized text that can be re-used in other video segments and maintain a consistent aesthetic throughout the production. PRTL files also allow you to easily share titles with other Premiere Pro users.
Premiere Pro comes bundled with PRTL files, but you may also create custom PRTL files. Bundled PRTL files are saved in the following location:
- Windows - Adobe\Premiere Pro\[version]\Templates
- macOS - Adobe Premiere Pro [version]/Contents/Presets/Templates
Before the release of Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 you could create a PRTL file by selecting Title → New Title. However, Adobe began phasing out PRTL files in favor of .MOGRT files with the release of CC 2017. To save a title as an MOGRT file, select Graphics → Export As Motion Graphics Template....
How do I open a PRTL file?
You can open PRTL files with Adobe Premiere Pro. To import a PRTL file, select File → Import.... The title you opened should now be visible in the "Project" pane in Premiere Pro (select Window → Project to view it).
You can also open PRTL files with an XML or source code editor since the file stores its information in the XML standard. However, we advise you to not manually edit a PRTL file with an XML editor since your edits may corrupt the file.
