I am helping a friend out who needs some AE work done. The project he gave me is an AE project media managed, but the media that is in it is a Premiere Project, not individual files. I have the premiere project and opened it just fine, but when I load the AE project it says the premiere project is missing. How do I re-link the timeline footage to the Premiere Project!?
(I will check back in 20 min on the post gotta run to lunch)
Is it done with Dynamic Link or were they just imported from a Premiere project?
If it is Dynamic Link, once you've re-saved the Premiere project (ideally to a new filename so you don't overwrite the original), try linking to that instead of the old one.
If it was just imported from a Premiere project (so that each cut is its own layer on the timeline [which I find much easier to work with, by the way]), simply find the media for one of those files and all the rest should automatically be found.
