Are you able to bring your Ae comps into Premiere by either:
File>Adobe Dynamic Link
...all of the files are on an external hard drive I take to and from class everyday if that helps in anyway....it runs very slowly and things get a littlw e wonky,
It may take more time to copy your files first,
but things work better from an internal drive.
File>import has the same error message and File>Adobe Dynamic Link says "Failed to connect to aodbe after effects dynamic link".
This is the only time that I"ve had problems with my external hardrive as well.
Can you import any Ae comps that are not associated
with your cross-platform, mobile project?
Can you open the problem Ae comps directly in Ae
without trying to DL or import into Premiere?
Can you open Ae, create a brand spanking new comp,
save it, exit Ae and import or DL the new comp into Premiere?
Sooooo...I can open everything individually. I can do what I need with the AE file but I just can't import or link any AE files to premiere.
But to answer your question directly No, Yes and No
It sounds like a Dynamic Link problem,
or possibly a version mismatch between Pr & Ae.
So maybe a different version of Ae and/or Pr is in my class room computers vs my home computer? They're both CS6 but some slightly differnet software perhaps? Somehow? I don't know how it works.
Are you able to create an Ae composition from your Premiere Timeline
by selecting a clip (or group of clips), right-clicking and selecting:
Replace With After Effects Composition?
No that doesn't work either, it comes up wit the same error.
It appears Dynamic Link is not functional on your system.
What are your program versions?
Have you checked for updates?
