I really need help, I was working on a music video for this group, I pieced the footage in premiere pro cs5.5 and color correct/colorgrad in after effects cs5 (dynamic link) after saving and closing out of premiere and after effects I returned later and multiple files are offline in premiere, so I tried doing the right click and link media but as I went to the AE project the composition is missing, not the footage but the whole composition is there any way I can get it back?????

Was your projeect and files on an external drive? Premiere and AE don't lose files very often.

Also, do you have autosaved turned on? Probably the easiest way of preventing projects from getting lost or corrupted. Autosave is located under Edit > Preferences. It's made for exactly this reason.

No I don't think my projects are saved on my external drive they are saved to my documents folder, I also don't think I ever manually turned auto save on for after effects but my premiere pro auto saves tho but I never manually turned that on either but the premiere auto saves.

Let me make sure I understand. If you open up your After Effects project, a composition that you had been working on is no longer in the project?

In my premiere pro, once I'm done slicing different clips and piece them together what I do is I right click each clip one by one and dynamic link each one, which will give them their on composition. That problem is long gone now, I just redid all of it now my problem is every time I try exporting the video out with Media Encoder half will export and then the other half will have a black/blank screen showing no footage at all,I tried exporting more than 13 times and it keeps exporting half and half will go black, the music plays but it shows no footage I don't know how to fix it :(

How are you getting to the point where you are having problems? You are not giving a lot of information.

You are in Premiere CS5.5 and you have a sequence that includes some shots that are Dynamic Linked to some After Effects compositions, right? (Is your AE CS5 as you said, or is it CS5.5?) Are all of the shots seperately linked to AE or just some?

You send that sequence to the Media Encoder out of Premiere by going to File>Export>Media, right? And what are the settings you've chosen?

Yes that's right, most shots are seperately linked to AE cs5.5 It's over a 1,000 chopped up footage and each one I color correct/color grade with colorista II, mojo, levels, sharpness and contrast

I send the sequence to Media Encoder I use H.264 for my format and use the hdtv 1080 High Quality preset I keep everything the same except target bit rate an maximum (20-30)
