Was it still progressing the next morning, or had it frozen at one place?
More information needed for someone to help... click these links and provide the requested information
Also... you used the word "render" twice, but it SEEMS your second use was actually about exporting to a new file... is that so?
Yes, John. The second render used was the export command. Jim, it acted like it was still progressing but was getting no where.
Still progressing, but getting nowhere. (Sounds like a Zen thing.)
Those are polar opposites. Which was it?

Robert, as someone who doe a lot of dynamic linking, may I suggest the process that seems to work best for me.
1. Get your AE clips and your PrP timeline just the way you want it
2. Open each AE proejct and export a movie in the codec of your choice. Rendering in AE is MUCH faster then in PrP for comps of any complexity. Be sure to have Project Link checked in the Queue choices.
3. Import the AE rendered movie into PrP.
4. Select the clip to be replaced on the PrP timeline.
5. Use Replace command to drop the rendered movie in its place
If you find you need to fix a comp, right click on the movie in the PrP timeline and Edit Original. This will open the AE comp for you. This is the Project link at work.
Please forgive me John......

I do have them dynamically linked and opened the AE project the way you mentioned. I don't see in AE an ability to choose formats for rendering. Can you please provide a command que or trail for rendering within AE? I do see export in file but the only logical choice seems to be to render to a PP project.
thanks for the helpful reply.
got it. Thank you.
I think you will be MUCH happier with the speed of rendering out movies in AE. Of course that will be a function of the computer you are using to do it. Good luck!
I find the speed to be the same myself. Exporting out of AE takes the same time as a DL'd comp exporting out of PP to the same specs.
