Pre-Rendering format?

My computer just can't get through the export in Premiere a film that I have remastered.

I need to pre-render each scene that is dynamically linked in AE.

By default the video format for pre rendering is set to Animation. My end project will be ProRes. Should I pretender in ProRes?

I don't want to lose any quality and I wan't to avoid artifacting at all costs.

The original video is captured from DV and uprezzed to 1080, then color corrected in AE.

Thanks.

OR, is is better to render and replace in Premiere?

I generally never have the need to pre render because the graphic work I do is generally worked on until the final export (and then often times after).

I think two-way trips between AE & PP are a bad idea. There are too many instances of big problems to convince me that it's a viable workflow.

If you're just going to use AE for color correction or color grading, I'd stay in PP. Lumetri Color is very good. It just takes a while to get used to using it. And you sidestep two-way Dynamic Link problems, a very good thing indeed.

The CC is complete. Now I just need to pre-render. Which is the best way?

[Michael Dominic] "Now I just need to pre-render. Which is the best way?"

By "prerender", I presume you mean, "it's time to get this into Premiere Pro".

Just so you know, prerendering in AE refers to rendering selected layers in an AE comp or precomps to reduce RAM or processing time demands.

If it is indeed time to get the clips into Premiere Pro, take Walter's recommendation to render & replace in Premiere Pro. You eliminate the potential problems of a two-way trip via Dynamic Link, and you can select the media container & codec for rendering. If you have the frame rates correct for this project, you will have NO problems replacing clips. In 20 years of AE use, I have never had a frame rate problem with it.

Ah, no. I think I should explain my workflow better.

The project started in Premier. To color correct each scene I sent them by dynamic link to after effects.

When I try to export the entire sequence from Premier in Adobe media encoder, at some point whether it be 5 or 15 hours it hangs or crashes.

I did a test and pre-rendered one scene in after effects and it moves much more quickly through AME.

Yes, render and replace in Premiere.
