1. Select clip in PrP timeline.
2. Right click and select "Make AE Composition". You just ceated a dynamic link.
3. AE opens. Name it. Do stuff. Save it.
4. Tab back to PrP. There is the AE Comp clip on your timeline. Might need to render to view it depending on your computer.
The upshot here is that you can only 'send' it one way. If you start in PP and then send it from there to AE, then whatever you do in AE automatically shows up in PP, so there's no need to 'send' it back to PP.
The only way to 'send' footage over to PP is if it starts out in After Effects. You can't have AE in the middle, starting and ending with PP. You start in one, send to the other, and that's the end of the trip. No more sends.
Can I select more than one clip at the time? Can I use this method with an entire sequence on the timeline?
Also I see "replace with AE composition". Is that what you were speaking of? I didn't see "make AE composition".

Yes and Yes, you are correct. I dont have PP in front of me for the exact wording.
If you send the whole sequence over, you are stuck finishing the edit in AE. Since all you have in PP is one big AE Comp clip
Thank you for the help....the footage now looks great!
