Forgive me if I'm missing something, but when I import a Premiere Pro sequence into After Effects, a composition is created from that sequence and placed in the Project panel.
Well, the sequence is placed in the project panel. Then you create a composition from the sequence. At that point, the composition should be filled with the data/media from the sequence, but mine is not. It's just blank.
Perhaps there is a problem, but try this, just in case.
Import the sequence. Then just doubleclick on the sequence in the project panel. Does AE then show the timeline for the sequence with all of the video clips, etc?
After Effects doesn't use 'sequences', only compositions. That PP sequence get's converted into an AE comp upon import. Just double click to open it.
I'm talking about when you import a PP sequence via:
Adobe Dynamic Link >
Import Premiere Pro Sequence... >
Then you choose the project file, and subsequently, the sequence you want to import.
You then have the project file in the Project panel in AE.
Next, you create a composition from it.
Just watch this video:
Works fine here though. If you double-click the Linked sequence, does it open in a viewer?
Alright -- I don't know what's going on.
Thanks for your help, anyway. I am just using a different method to get back and forth with the media for now.
Ah. I get it. I have never used Dynamic Link that way.
If I use the Dynamic Link menu to bring in a Pr project, the sequence has the footage in it.
Maybe you could show us how what it looks like for you. The software to capture your screen is free if you use CamSTudio-Recorder like I do.
