Premiere/After Effects dynamic link errors and failures
on Apr 2, 2016 at 11:52:37 pm

Here's a breakdown of the sequence of events where the errors occur and what errors occur.

I open my Premiere document and my AE document.

I right-click the Premiere clip I'd like to edit in AE and select "Replace with After Effects Composition."

The clip opens in After Effects just fine, however in Premiere I get an error message that says "The importer reported a generic error."

I click and drag the AE composition into Premiere and get an error message that says "Failed to connect with Adobe After Effects Dynamic Link."

I quit and reopen both applications.

I try to drag the AE composition into Premiere again. This works about half the time. (The other half the time I get the "failed to connect" error.)

I make my desired edits to the AE composition.

I cannot see those edits in Premiere - live-updating fails.

I try to edit the next clip in my Premiere sequence in AE... and the cycle starts all over again.

Things I've tried:

Quitting and re-opening Premiere and After Effects (numerous times).

Rebooting (numerous times)

Changing permissions to read & write in Library/Common folder

Running Private Internet Access

Not running private internet access

Logging out and logging back into Creative Cloud

Uninstalling and re-installing Premiere and After Effects

Creating an all new Premiere file and relinking all the AE compositions

Contacting Adobe chat support, where we somehow miraculously couldn't recreate the problem, so of course as soon as the chat stopped, all the problems came back

Other pieces of information worth noting:

This is a 2.5 minute music video

Every shot has its own AE composition and so far there are 38 shots. Some of these compositions have additional compositions within them. In the end there will be a little over 50 compositions total.

File includes one link to a Cinema 4D composition.

Software information:

After Effects, 2015.2 Release,

Adobe Premiere Pro CC, 2015.2 Release, v9.2, ZigZag

My computer information:

iMac (27-inch, Late 2013)

Processor 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5

Memory 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2048 MB

Any ideas welcome.

Other strange errors I've gotten at various times include:

"After Effects error: File couldn't be opened for writing: "". (3 :: 0)"

"After Effects error: internal verification failure, sorry!" {no current context}"

"AEGP Plugin CINEWARE SceneLayer: CINERENDER - Connection failure ( 5027 :: 12 )"

Hey... I've had the same errors. Here's an easy work-around solve.

Usually, these errors are caused when the programs don't like the clip you are using. This does seem to be a little random (and irritating.)

Copy the clip with control c.

Create a new premier file. (I have created a file called "exporter" just for this purpose.)

Paste the clip into the edit file.

Export the clip, and save it where you can find the clip.

Import the clip back into your original edit file. It should now work.

This also helps when you add multiple effects -- such as NeatVideo, and Stabilizer. It often helps to copy the clip, export it with one effect added, then bring the exported file back into the edit program.

Color correcting will slow editing down, so exporting clips and re-importing them can also help to keep the edit file moving.

Another trick is to "render selection" -- by highlighting a few clips -- rather than render in to out, which can take a while.

Hope this helps.
