I am currently experiencing some difficulties trying to "double"-dynamic-link. In Premiere Pro, I have a sequence for a movie-szene. In this sequence, I am using multiple dynamically linked After Effects compositions (removed light-switches, and stuff like that).
Now I want to modify this whole sequence with tools from After Effects, so I try to dynamic-link this Premiere Pro sequence to a new After Effects Project. Up to here, everything works fine, but After Effects doesn't allow me to use this linked sequence in a composition. This problem doesn't occure with linked sequences where the sequence does not contain After Effects compositions.
I fear I already know the answer to this: "double-linking" is not possible? Or am I doing something wrong?
Help is really apreciated. Thanks in advance!
That is not a viable workflow. I would suggest rendering the first AE comp to a production format and replacing the linked footage in PPro
Well, that might not be an officially viable workflow, but it is in fact a pretty logical one. It would allow me to keep as much of my work editable up to the final rendering as possible without "hardcoding" intermediate steps. Pre-rendering, as you suggest, would work, but it also means, that I have to manually re-render stuff on any change, update links to videos, etc.
I see the downsides to this; heavily increased render-times and a huge forest of misleading or even bad dynamic-links if used incorrectly.
From your answer I guess, that it is not possible - at least right now. Thank you, Rick!
