this problem is really stopping me from learning ae , i imported a premiere pro project into after effects, i dragged the composition onto the ae timeline, and it came up, it was fine, there was just one problem: i couldn't change the mode , no effects could be added to it, i think it was because instead of video clips that came up, they were compositions, mind you this problem has never occurred before, now i can't do anything to the composition clips now, and in my project tab in ae, instead of only video clips and solids and text and stuff, it has all that plus the exact same video clips, but in composition mode, can you please help?

[mathm mason] "this problem is really stopping me from learning ae"

There's this old joke about a guy who goes to the doctor complaining about pain in his elbow when he bends his arm. "It hurts when I do that" the guy says.
"Then don't do that," replies the doctor.

You've got a similar case. You're trying to jump into the deep end of the pool without knowing how deep it is. Have you noticed that the AE tutorials only use three or four clips of video at most? So why don't you just import three or four clips of video into AE and start learning?

Forget about exotica like importing a Premiere project into AE until you've gone over it step-by-step in AE Help, and you know what you're doing.

What version of AE?
What version of Premiere?
What codec is used in your video clips?

Although, no matter what, you should still be able to apply effects in your AE timeline whether it's a composition or not.
