I created a series of comps in AE (using a combination of video footage and Red Giant Trapcode) and used dynamic link to get them into my Premiere Pro sequence. As I imported each file, I rendered and saved along the way. I am able to view my sequence in entirety the way I wanted it finalized in the sequence panel.
When I exported the file to media/h.264 in the encoder, I noticed no problems. When I opened the finalized mp4, the after effects content was missing. I went back into premiere and noticed that each AE file imported is missing the "special effects" from the source file, but the sequence panel shows all content.
I am beyond frustrated, any help would be greatly appreciated.
