Im using adobe premiere pro and after effects I'm using dynamic link to work between the two.i have been editing a music video in PP and i used twicter on a few of the clips using AE through dynamic link and also added a few lens flares with AE through Dynamic link. I was just about done editing the video in premiere and i wanted to send the whole thing to AE so i selected the whole thing (including the clips i had already edited in AE) then right clicked and hit "replace with AE comp" and it all works fine except for all the clips i had already edited in AE won't play what am i doing wrong?
You can't send dynamically linked composition from PrPro timeline to AE via Dynamic Link once again, 'cos that creates an infinite loop. If you need or want to send your PrPro timeline, which already contains dynamically linked compositions, you have to replace them with intermediates first, i.e. render your ongoing dynamically linked compositions from After Effects (create 'digital intermediates' or 'DI's), import those DIs into PrPro project and then replace dynamically linked comps in PrPro timeline with those DIs.
good to know thanks so much for the reply!
