Windows 10. I have the latest versions of PP and AE installed.
I can use all of the templates that came with the Essential Graphics tab, including the AE ones. I can even make my own templates, in AE, and they work in PP (I created a solid, and dragged the Opacity option into the Graphics tab. Exported it. Opened it in Premiere and it worked.)
However, with a specific AE project that I'm working on, as I'm importing the Graphic into PP, it gets stuck at 15%, and says I need to install AE. Keep in mind this was an old AE project file that had to be converted when I downloaded CC 2017 (not sure if that could be the issue).
Any suggestions would be great!
What, exact, version numbers of Premiere Pro and AE do you have installed?
premiere pro 11.1.1
after effects 184.108.40.206
Well darn, that should be working.
I wonder if something is blocking the network connection between the two. I'd look into your firewall settings (or turning it off completely) to see if that's the issue.
I'm having this error, too.
Dropping an AE motion graphics template into Premiere pauses at exactly 15%, and gives the same error prompt.
Did you solve this issue or still having trouble? Let us know.
