Hey people... I've been using AE for a week, learning basically on YouTube, so I really appreciate a pat in the back for what I just discovered. It's is a long post, so if you don’t want to read the whole story yo can skip to the conclusion.
Whenever I imported a AE composition to PP, Dynamic Link was dead and it can only update by restarting PP, so I did this:
- In the Project panel, I used "New item" to create a "Color Matte".
- Once created grabbed it and dropped where I wanted to have it in my time line and set its duration.
- I opt-clicked and selected "Replace with After Effects Composition"
- An AE project file was created containing all the compositions embedded in the original PP project.
- DL was working perfectly, then I mess something on the linked file and the Dynamic Link, so I deleted it and used "File> Adobe Dynamic LInk> Import AE Composition" and imported the composition from the previously generated AE project. It worked again, perfectly.
Life was great, DL was working perfectly until I was trying to figure out masks and press who knows what and the file was unlinked. It was the third linked composition, so I did the same, erased and went to the Media Browser panel to locate the AE project, found the composition dragged and dropped it to the timeline and BAM!... nothing happened, DL was still dead. I erased and imported dropping it in the Project panel and trough File> Import. Since the other two compositions where updating normally I concluded this wasn't a bug nor a system failure. Then I re-discover my first discovery and used "File> Adobe Dynamic LInk> Import AE Composition" and again, it worked perfectly.
I don’t think this is a bug. I think there’s two ways to import AE content to PP:
- Importing it as any other kind of asset, which will bring a copy of the last saved instance of said asset.
- Through Dynamic Link, which will live update.
It’s kind of the same difference between sending a rasterised file or an Smart Object from Bridge in Photoshop.
I am currently experiencing this issues with CC 2018 PP and AE. Has there been a resolve?
I'm having the exact same issue with the same version. Any solutions??
Same problem here. Adobe made me loose a half day for that **** problem.
Absolutely make sure that both of these applications are updated.
Hi, is this a (bad) joke? Adobe should know that with the old versions all worked fine. I updated to the latest version some days ago and now I have this problem that both programs do not work together. If I update a ae-file, premiere does even not update that placed file after closing both and reopen the project. So I have to save the AE under a new name and replace it (and inserting all options…).
A lot of nonsense work…so Adobe, please update your programs soon and remove that bugs.
of course they are updated ! But it's not working !
Just found this thread today, thought I'd throw my two cents in. Truth be told I'm not the best when it comes to remembering to update versions, but I just updated to the absolute latest (legit as of 5 minutes ago - Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018, Adobe After Effects CC 2018), and I'm still having the same issues. I have a Premiere Pro project with an After Effects Dynamic Link in it, and it does not update in real time. Still not sure why I am having this problem, as it definitely hasn't been an issue in the past.
Adobe is becoming more and more a monopolist and maybe cares less about users
Same problem here, and all the softwares are updated.
Same, got a great effect working in AE but trying to work with that effect in Premiere is mind boggling
DL set to AE comp
Go into AE, Do some changes to the animation
Alt Tab to Premiere
Nothing changes, still original AE comp
Frustrating I can not seem to figure this DL stuff out.
The new update resolves this problem. Not always quick and immediately. Sometimes I had to close and reopen Premiere to refresh the AE-composing, but it works.
…we pay to be beta testers for Adobe…
I am also experiencing this issue and it's super frustrating. The only way to update the AE comp is to quit and restart Premiere - which is not an efficient work around. I have updated both AE and Premiere so that's not the problem. Anyone have success fixing it?
Kevin, I updated from CC2015.3 to AE15.0.1 and Premiere12.0.1 only 2 weeks ago. These features worked fine in the previous versions and now they don't. Why mess with stuff that works just fine as it was. Same thing as the Text Preview in comp in AE, Why mess with it?
I have the most recent versions and are experiencing nothing but problems and constant crashes from both programs. This is causing a massive loss in productivity and a very frustrated ADBOE customer who pays good money for software which keeps breaking. I might just roll back and as it seems these new versions are just way too buggy.
Another thing which I tried which seemed to work for a little bit was uninstalling all of the drivers for my GTX970 graphics card and then installing the latest WHQL certified driver from Nvidia..... Worth a try :-)
BTW - It's broken again. It seems that when you Right Click in Premiere and choose [EDIT ORIGINAL] the Dynamic LInk is not established between AE and Premiere unless the AE Project is all ready opened and you have been working on other comps then the [EDIT ORIGINAL] menu appears to work ????
I was having this problem today, restarted both AE and PR multiple times, rebooted the machine, nothing worked.
After reading some of the above replies I tried to right click on the AE comp in PR and select "Edit Original" that opened it in AE and it has been working like normal since then.
Hope that helps some folks, does seem like a bug though as it was working perfectly yesterday when I left the office.
