Hi,

I'm struggling with something that really shouldn't be so complicated, yet here I am.

I'm trying to import a very simple keyframed 5-second long title project from Premiere Pro to After Effects.

What should show up as this:

Instead shows up as a giant black square in After Effects:

and I have no idea why. It has the same key frames as the text, but just appears as a black square.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

My guess is that you are using the Titler built into Premiere.

While I've never seen any explanation as to why, titles created in the Titler do not translate to any other Adobe product. I don't think it generates an error message either.

After Effects doesn't import Premiere Titles.

Crazy, right?

If you'd like to see that change, file a feature request: http://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html

Well, that's really stupid.

Are you forced to use the titler in Premiere Pro, too? Can you create text without it? As you can see, my initial text is very basic and doesn't need the titler at all to function.

That's IT? One word that has to last five seconds?
Cripes, just do the text in AE. Save yourself some grief.

I'm with Dave, why not just type it in AE? Or, heck, copy and paste the text.

I agree that doing the text in AE (or even Photoshop) would solve this particular problem.

But it mystifies me why I can't use the titler output in other Adobe applications. And why isn't there even an error message? I'm sure I am not the only one to have asked for the ability to use the titler's output in AE several times over the years.

My guess it that big-A bought the titler from someone and did not negotiate the ability to use it elsewhere.
