I am green with AE and looking for a workflow. What do you guys do import the entire show and finish it in AE? OR render just the portion that uses AE, import that into ae then export back into NLE. How should I be doing this? Is there a stitching workflow that works?
It depends on what you're doing. I did a weekly music and entertainment show that, barring the music videos we played and two other segments, was on a chromakey set. I edited it in Premiere then just imported the Premiere sequence into AE so I could key it, place the set (which, btw, was created entirely in AE) and do the color correction.
However, for a project I just did for the military, I created titles, graphics and lower thirds in AE, rendered them and imported them into Premiere. I used Premiere for the color correction.
It really depends on what you're doing.
