Dynamic Link isn't linking

Jan 19, 2011 7:28 AM

Hello!

 

I have CS4 suite (student version, meaning it doesn't have all those lovely extra plugins like keylight and mochaAE).

 

I created a video in Premiere Pro, but some of my footage was shaky so I opened up AE and imported the footage (not the PPro project) and stabilised the footage. Then I tried to import the footage into PPro to replace my old footage, using the drag and drop method. I got an error message saying the dynamic link server is busy.

 

Looking in the forums for a solution I believe my problem is that I am using footage already in my PPro project. It seems I can only import footage that is not already in PPro. So I deleted the clip from my PPro project, closed and reopened PPro and then tried to drag and drop it, but I get the same error message. I've tried closing and opening the 2 programs in different orders as directed by some of the posts I read in the Adobe forums but still no joy.

 

Before deleting the footage I tried the method of right clicking the footage in PPro and selecting replace with AE composition, but I got the error message 'Could not connect to AE'.

 

I don't know what to do next.

 

Is there anyone who can give me step by step instructions? I am a bit of a novice - frustrated but keen.

 

Thank you for your time.

Vanessa

    Export the file out of AE instead of using Dynamic Link.

    Well done.

     

    A lot of people would have needed hand holding.  Nice to see someone who can take the broad idea and work out the specifics on their own.

    Jim, I looked for your answer and all I see is "Reexport with the correct settings"?

    I am having a similar issue between Premium Pro CS5 and Encore CS5

    I created a project and tried to access Encore via dynamic link, but it is grayed our

    so I launched Encore and loaded the project, but the load never finished even after several hours, it just "hangs"

    The only export that is not grayed out is "AAF & Final Cut"

    Can you please help me with the correct settings?
