Dynamic Link Trouble
on Jan 19, 2017 at 7:41:40 pm

I pulled a clip from Premiere to After Effects to use the warp stabilizer. I have 1080 footage on a 720 Premiere timeline and have this clip scaled to 68. In after effects, it looks right and the warp does it's job, but when I go back to Premiere the clip has scaled up. I have heads cut off but if I lower the scale in Premiere, it acts as if it's at 100 and I can't scale down. I have tried leaving Premiere scale at 100 and sending to After Effects, and changing the scale IN After Effects both before and after using the dynamic link to send the clip. I really don't want to render out files and take them back to Premiere. I have done this loads of times and haven't had a problem.

I don't trust Dynamic Link to work properly for round-tripping like that. Just try rendering out the 1080 video in AE, import into PP and see if it works as expected for you.

That's what I was afraid of! Thank you :)

Aw, don't be afraid.

In situations like this, I just do all my AE projects for the day, make a new project, import all the day's projects, then render all of 'em overnight. I hit the Render button, have a relaxing evening, and when I come in the next day everything's ready for me.

Heck, that's the way you HAD to do it in Days Of Yore... it took AE Version Three about 4 hours to render out a 30-second spot of any complexity. Now I just use the strategy 'cause I know how... and it works.

Oh yes, I did do that in the days of yore which is why I get annoyed when the tricks and updates fail me! I often leave things overnight...
