I have been working with both programs for a while now and when I need something done in AE I usually copy paste the clip from the Premiere Pro timeline. What annoys me a great deal is that AE will not only paste the clip I have selected, but also create a long empty space in the composition that reflects the premiere pro sequence length (I guess). I would simply like to have AE bring the clip that I want to paste and let me worry about the lenght of the composition. Am I doing something wrong and is there a way to copy-paste smarter? How do you guys bring your premiere footage in to AE?
