Using Premiere Pro file in after effects
on Mar 5, 2012 at 4:21:42 pm

When i bring in the Premiere file to After effects by importing i can see the file in the preview, but i cannot drop it in the timeline.

When i use the dynamic linking option between the programs to bring the premiere file in i can then put it in the timeline, but it is only giving me white and not bringing in the footage from the premiere sequence.

Am i missing something?

thank you!!!

Here's my workflow:
Edit in PPro. If I want control over each clip, I right click on them one at a time and create a AE composition. I do my fx in AE, keep the project open and save. The next clip I work in AE will open in the same comp- this way I can copy and paste settings if I need to. If I want to apply a plugin to the whole cut, I create a new Sequence In PPro, bring in my first sequence (my edit) in it. It comes in as a clip that can then be sent to AE for fx. I can still change the cut inside the first sequence if I need to.
It will take longer to render in PPro for previews because of the AE fx.
You can also open a Premiere project in AE or import one.
Just make sure you have the latest updates for both AE and PPro.

can you clarify this part: "If I want to apply a plugin to the whole cut, I create a new Sequence In PPro, bring in my first sequence (my edit) in it. It comes in as a clip that can then be sent to AE for fx. I can still change the cut inside the first sequence if I need to."

Can you also explain what you would be copying and pasting settings for?

I'm sort of new at this but really would like to understand. I appreciate your patience :-)
