I am working with cs4 PrP and AE:
I started a projekt, made my cuts and then right-clicked on the clips I needed to edit in AE and said: "Replace with AE-Komposition (Dynamic Link)".
AE asked me where to save the file, I saved, did my editing, saved again and closed AE. I did this with several clips in my timeline. The clips were
marked and the dynamic link compositions were created in my content list in PrP. I've saved my Project in PrP and closed.
Now, that I reopen it, the dynamic link files that were edited address to a wrong footage. Most of the edited (DL-files) clips have a wrong footage. Even
if I edit the DL-linked clip back in AE, its the wrong footage. This somehow got mixed up!
Help would be much appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance!
I think I have seen something similar, the referenced clip (after editing in AE) was not the intended footage, even though it was named correctly. I got around this by resaving the AE edit with a new file name, and re linking to this in PPro. Afterwards, the referenced file was correct
I think that in the file drop down menu. The command you need is 'Link Media', this opens a pop up window, from there find the AE project you have created, and select that. This will link to the AE footage
