Ive cut some clips on premier pro, when i highlight them ( 2 clips) and move them over to after effects with the 'render and replace with after effects composition,' it opens but with 2 compositions with the edits instead of mp4 files
you probably mean "Replace with Ae Composition" which is for linking your clip to an Ae live composition and not "Render and Replace" which is for pre-rendering in Premiere to speed up performance on heavily processing clips. the reasons you are seeing precomps instead of clips is probably because you toggled the "scale to frame size" in premiere: Re: Scale to frame size Premiere to AE behaviour?
if you want you can toggle it off and and instead use "set to frame size" in premiere instead.
not allowing me to toggle the motion blur effect i need.
do you mean you are using CC Force Motion blur? what exactly is the problem? I see both precomps and mp4 look the same with the effects.
Hey man, thanks for your quick response!! Was late over here when I posted hence my late rely.
Yess i meant 'replace with ae comp' not 'render and replace ae..' (you can tell i'd been sat at my station for way too long lol)
But your absolutely right its was the 'scale to frame size' that was making the files into a comp instead of mp4 file.
you've saved me so much time (and hair), thanks so much man!
sorry kinda new to ae, but after looking at it it wasn't 'motion blur' it was 'frame blending' on the toggle switches panel that wasn't allowing the box to be clicked but now all is ok and working
it was 'frame blending' on the toggle switches panel that wasn't allowing the box to be clicked
I see. just so you will know - frame blending is for video/sequences and that's why it's not enabled for precomps. you do have the collapse switch turned on for the precomp and this means that frame blending in the footage inside will be respected as long as it's set on for the layers inside
either way - precomps creates a mess in this case so using "set to frame size" instead of "scale to frame size" is probably a better idea. also make sure you know what you want in terms of workflow between Ae and Premiere. sometimes it's just better to not work "Live" between the two and instead simply copy paste the clips or sequence from one to the other.
here's a nice tutorial about workflow options when crossing these two apps: Adobe Premiere Pro to After Effects Workflow - Tutorial - YouTube
here's an extensive article about it:
Thank you so much for your help, you really know your stuff and have helped me tremendously!
Cheers for the link to the articles, the video you sent is literally the same vid i was watching when trying the replace with ae comp!
thanks a bunch dude!

Great. you're welcome. I learn as I go and your questions helped me to get a grip on this issues as well. I recommend you exhaust the tutorials in the Ae and Premiere tutorial pages and then subscribe to a decent channel or platform (like Lynda) to educate yourself and learn more and more. first the basics, then techniques.
please mark the right response as "Correct" so this thread will be more noticable to others struggling with the same issues
