    Dynamic Link

    rona52037535

      Issue with the dynamic link between Premiere Pro CC 2018 and After Effects CC 2018.  After the latest update this past week, Premeire Pro says I need to install AE.  So I go into AE and create a link under the File menu (have tried both options) and the new "linked composition" has the correct length of time, but no video or media in that comp.

       

      Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

          Hi, what are you exactly going to do, add your premiere clip to after effects to composite and have all compositing applied to the clip in the premiere pro timeline ?

          if that's the case, right click on your premiere clip and choose 'replace with after effects composition'... this will create a dynamic linm for your clips.

           

          if you are doing something else, please specify better

            Hi Carlos,

             

            I am having the same problem. After updating to the newest versions of AA (15.1.0, build 166) and PP (12.1.0, build 186), my AA motion graphic template no longer works in my PP project, and when I try to re-link it, PP tells me that I need to install AA—which of course I already have.

             

            Thanks!

              Hi ! Try to open your mogrt file in the newest After Effects you have, and export it as a motion graphics template from there.

              Delete your previously imported mogrt from premiere essential graphics and import the new exported one.

               

              Check if this works please ...

                to correct : not the actual mogrt file but the After Effects project in which the mogrt was created

                  Thanks, Carlos. In the AE "export" command, the only options are:

                   

                  Add to Adobe Media Encoder queue

                  Add to render queue

                  Export Adobe Premiere Pro project

                  MAXON Cinema 4D exporter

                   

                  I don't see an option to "export as a Motion Graphic Template" option

                   

                  Thanks!

                    Hi !

                    you have to export using the Essential Graphics Panel in After Effects

                    Export Motion Graphics Template

                      and one other thing, is your OS language english ?

                      If your OS runs on another language you have to run 'Expression Universalizer' before exporting

                       

                      Let me know how it goes and I'm here to help

                        Thanks, yes, I just saw that.

                         

                        In importing into PP, "Peace Films Globe logo.mogrt" was greyed out, however, I was able to import "AdobeNews-Capsules (converted).aep"

                            OK, I got it working, just trying to find the color control to change the graphics color. I was able to do so before. I'm editing it in "Effects control". I just clicked on "Edit original" and it took me back to AA, where I changed the color, which changed the color in PP. Is that the correct procedure?

                             

                            Thanks!

                              Well every mogrt should come with color controls just click on the mogrt clip in premiere timeline and you should see the controls either in the essential graphics panel or the effect controls

                                you seem to be working with 2 files actually. one is a 'mogrt' the other is an After Effects comp.

                                 

                                a mogrt is a Motion Graphics Template, created on after effects to be used solely in premiere with the controls

                                shared on the essential graphics panel. usually those controls are opacity, color, text, scale and position + other

                                controls depending on the creator of the mogrt. These are exported from After Effects essential graphics panel

                                as a mogrt file to be imported into Premiere. There is no 'Dynamic Linking' in this case.

                                 

                                a Dynamic Link could be a Premiere Pro timeline clip set to 'replace with after effects composition' and so, this

                                same clip is dynamically linked to after effects. all compositing you do to this clip in after effects will be directly

                                updated on the premiere timeline. There is no need to import and export. Just right click on your clip on the

                                Premiere Timeline and choose 'replace with after effects composition'

                                 

                                What I was replying and explaining before was all related to the mogrt file and not to dynamic linking since you

                                mentioned that you have a problem with a 'motion graphics template' which we call mogrt.

                                 

                                Concerning your "AdobeNews-Capsules (converted).aep" file, yes, you did the right procedure in

                                changing color in After Effects and you see that it updates in premiere.

                                 

                                now, for your "Peace Films Globe logo.mogrt" you need to delete that file from the

                                premiere's essential graphics panel under the 'Browse' category.

                                Go to after effects, open the AE project for ""Peace Films Globe logo" and export it

                                from the Essential Graphics panel inside after effects by clicking on 'Export Motion Graphics Template'

                                choose a location and save it. Import the mogrt file into Premiere from the Essential Graphics panel and

                                not from the normal import in the project panel. From the essential graphics panel drag your mogrt file

                                to the timeline, click on it and you should be able to control its parameters either from the essential graphics

                                panel under 'Edit' or in the Effect Controls panel

                                 

                                Let me know how it goes on ...

                                  The Way I solved the problem is I brought the clips into AE and did the effects I want to add to them then exported and brought that back into premiere.  Not effecient, but I got tired of the dynamic link not working (I tried to create it in Premiere and AE, both failed).  I did an update on Premeire yesterday, just haven't tried it since then.  I hope the update fixed the issue
