I'm working on a music video where I have drone h264 footage interspersed between Canon 60D h264 footage; I edited it in Premiere Pro 2014. When I attempt either to dynamically link the project into after effects or open after effects and import the premiere pro project, it brings in every clip except the drone clips. More specifically, it shows the drone clips are brought in as layers just as the rest of the clips are but the actual drone clips are all missing from the after effects timeline. I have attempted trying to dynamically link the premiere project and import it into AE on different computers and they are all unable to see the drone footage. I have not transcoded any of the footage; I have worked with footage from this drone before in After Effects using the same import process as above and it worked fine then. I fail to see why it recognizes that the clips are layers in the AE timeline at all but then does not show the actual clips in the timeline. Moreover, I can play the raw drone footage inside after effects as assets in the project panel and the playback is normal. What gives?
Here are some images to illustrate what I'm talking about:
Both images are taken from the same point on the timeline in premiere vs after effects. The name of the clip is DJI_0004 which is the fourth from the bottom in after effects. In the premiere window it's the purple clip on V1 that the timeline indicator is hovering over. There should be a clip where the timeline indicator hovers over DJI_0004 in AE but there isn't. I have no idea what the problem is.
When you turn the checkerboard on in After Effects, do you see it or do you still see black?
Are there any effects on the drone footage in Premiere?
