Thanks for the response but all the forums you referenced have to do with going to Encore. My issues have to do with linking between Premiere and AE. As my project got more complicated, the issues have gotten worse. I am now rendering all my comps in AE to move them into Premiere and by passing the link all together.
Thats how I do it, dynamic link is very hit and miss, on my system the more complex it is the more likely it is to fail
Dynamic Link is a one jump process. You can go from AE to PP, but it stops there. Or you can go from PP to AE, but not back to PP again.
That is what I do too.
Replace with AE comp. Do my stuff in AE and render to a lossless codec (Lagarith).
Import that into Pro.
Next replace clip from bin or from Source, match frame.
As others said, you don't have to perform any extra steps so as to bring your dynamically linked AE composition back: when you replace a clip or a group of clips in PrPro timeline, everything is done automatically.
What you really need to do is to take care of handles.
