Hello. Pretty new to AE, have used FCP for some motion graphics in the past and just transitioned to Adobe. Working in Premiere and AE. I have an AE project that I am working on. I have several compositions in the project linked to Premiere that are working fine for the most part (minimal effects or transitions). It randomly gives me update issues but if I close and reopen Premiere I get the update. Figuring that's just a system issue (YOSEMITE, 2 x 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, ATI Radeon HD 4870 512 MB, 16GB RAM) as I am due to upgrade and this machine wasn't built for this work.
The big issue I am having is that I did a composition in AE using a displacement map and a normal map on type. ITs a textured image with white type fading in and out on the texture. It works well in AE preview. However, when I opened it in Premiere the textured image is there, the timing is correct, but the type and the effect don't show up. I tried making the type a color to see if it was possibly an opacity thing but that didn't help. I rendered and exported as .mov file. No luck, same result. Is there something obvious I am missing.
