    From After Effects to Premiere Pro

    BigRed872010

      Hey anyone!

       

      I'm having trouble transferring an After Effects composition to Premiere Pro.

       

      The compostion is just 2 animation presets (filters) applied to 2 adjustment layers on top of a Premiere Pro sequence that I imported (right-click AE project pane, select "import").

       

      I've tried the following:

      - right clicking the project media pane in PP, and importing the AE comp.  When I did this, I could view the comp in my source monitor, but I could NOT move the comp onto my sequence timeline.  Tried dragging, setting in/out points, it just gave me the ghostbusters "no" symbol when I tried to drag it into timeline.

      - copy/paste the layers from AE into PP timeline.  Adjustment layers became 2 video tracks that were nothing but a slightly transparent white solid over video that was disconnected (red screen with "media disconnected" written all over it).

      - exporting the AE comp as a new PP project (File-->Export...).  The new project had nothing in it but a blank timeline.  Tried copying/pasting comp into that.  Nothing happened.

      - exporting the AE comp as an uncompressed AVI.  AE just keeps freezing/crashing in the middle of the export even if I split the comp up in 2 to make it easier.

       

      What am I doing wrong?  Am I doing anything right?  What is the BEST method for transferring an AE comp into a PP timeline?
