>Problem now is, whether i dynamic link to the project or if i just import the Premiere project, all my simple transitions (dissolves!) don't come across. Example, I have a color matte (white) fading up over a clip dissolving to another clip, but it comes into AE as a hard cut. And this is true for ALL my transitions. Whether they are on their own fading in and out over video, or dissolving between 2 clips on the same video track.
This is what I have tried to tell other people that this method does not always work...it might not even work for the easiest of projects. As you are seeing.
I take it you updated all your versions to 4.0.1.
Did you update all your hardware drivers?
If you are having trouble with DL try a simple workaround that has helped others in your same situation:
Start by saving your project in PR.
Open After Effects and import your PR project file.
You should now see a sequence file in your projects window.
Double click on that sequence file to open the sequence and all corresponding clips/transitions into the timeline.
See if that helps at all. You may have already tried this, but it is a good workaround when DL is not functioning to your liking.
Take a look at the following links for more information on DL and integration withing AE and PR:
Thanks guys, and thanks for the links. Yeah i've done both your suggestions. Updated and imported the project. No dice. Just a very frustrating thing. I'll check out the links but this is a workflow I've been using for sometime back through CS2 without the problem.
The only other thing I could think of trying is exporting an EDL from PR and import that into AE...
I use to have to do that when I was using MEDIA 100 and AE 7, but everything including dissolves made it over to AE.
Thanks, that's actually what I ended up doing and everything seemed to come over fine.
