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.
Thank you Jim for your response!
I've exported the clip from AE to PPro but it has shrunk to less than half its size. I've had to increase the scale to 225% which has compromised the quality of the shot.
Is this familiar to you? And do you have a solution?
Thank you again for your time.
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?

Once you know exactly what it is you are editing, report back with that information... and your project setting, and if there is a red line above the video in the timeline, which indicates a mismatch between video and project
