question about Adobe Dynamic Link.

Maybe I am doing something wrong? can you help?

THis is the situation I have CS6 - Working in after effects - masking 4 different videos into one comp - then when I export as Premiere pro project, when I copy paste from after effects to premiere pro The masks are gone and I get one video over the other videos 4 times. I can import in premiere - using import dynamic link after effects composition and the masking looks fine, but If i do this I have no access to individual layers inside the comps in premiere.

So basically I can't get all of my AE Separate layers with masks included into premiere pro for further editing since premiere deletes the masks. This is very frustrating since now, most of the editing has to be done in AE.

Is there any other editing software where I can import AE separate layers with Masks included? for futher editing.

thanks for the help

I´m not sure if i understod you right (no nativ english speaker).
i think thats the way it is, premiere and AE are two different programs for diffrent tasks. the fact that it it posible to import a AE comp into PP ist already cool, of course it´s limited.

how about rendering the Comp and import it to PP when the AE-work is done?

Yes, I guess I would just have to edit in AE. I am going to consider moving to Nuke after this since that software integrates nicely with Hiero.

thanks anyways

Nuke and Hiero do look great together. Ae and Premiere integrate nicely, too, but ultimately with any of these two-application workflows, you will run into an issue where one application must be responsible for something that you want to control from the other application.

What exactly are you trying to do? Maybe we can suggest a different approach?

Thanks Walter your help is always appreciated. The project is a bit complicated to describe.
I settled for rendering out each layer separately and using RGB + alpha and then using Premiere to put it together. z

I am still working on the same project from a couple of months ago.
You gave me some good advise regarding precomposing and masking.

when the project is over I'll make sure to send you the info. And maybe you can then give me your opinion of what would have been better.

thanks.

Seems like a reasonable solution.

This is kind of a tough problem, trying to do both compositing and editorial at the same time. I generally try to get through editorial first, then handle the compositing with as close to a locked edit as I can manage -- but of course this is not always possible.

Good luck with your project!
