Replace each clip with an After Effects composition. Or consider correcting the master clips in AE first, then linking the corrected comps in your Pr project. You can then slice & dice the linked comps just like normal clips
Correcting the master clips turned out to be the most effective solution, and then I exported to new DV AVI's and use "replace" in PPro.
I think there should be a better way of working this out, though, and maybe (hopefully) we'll see it in CS5. A way to bring a PPro timeline into AE for color work, but still retain the timeline as is in PPro.
It would be nice =)
You're welcome. :)
I'd like to see 2-way dynamic link as well.
Sometimes I will copy and paste the original clips to the track above before replacing with an After Effects comp. This way you will always have the original clips if you need them.

If adobe could do that they would be putting Flame's and nitris' out of businesss.

You can do the first part at least. Just leave your CC work till the edit is locked down (which is often the way the 'big boys' do it anyway.)
"You can do the first part at least. Just leave your CC work till the edit is locked down (which is often the way the 'big boys' do it anyway.)"
That's the correct way to do it. I only use dynamic link for After Effects shots and transitions that you need to get the final edit done.
And about putting Flame ect out of business, putting a simple NLE in After Effects would be that killer app. I only use Premiere to cut, that's all. Everything else is done in AE every transition, I never use any FX in Premiere.
Well I'm not a big boy quite yet, and I like to have my projects open for tinkering as long as possible =)
Until we get 2-way DL, the way I did it now was nesting the finished sequence in Premiere, and then choosing to replace the nest with an AE Comp. This brings a managable nest-clip into AE, that also contains the entire timeline in clips (layers).
It worked out pretty well, allowing me to change the clips in the nest (individual effects and trims) as well as easily apply changes to the entire sequence, so I'm happy for now =P
My hope for the future is that we will only have to create one timeline all-in-all and be able to work on that timeline in any Adobe application, simultaneously if so desired, and any change made to that timeline in Premiere will be instantly reflected in AE, PS or what have you, and vice versa. Maybe someday =)
My hope for the future is that Adobe will put ideas like yours on absolute hold-- until they get the existing features and tools optimized for improved workflow and all the tired old code in Premiere pared down, optimized, and sped up. Premiere needs some serious QC and QA.
I think just need to do a code rewrite. Fix this version then do a rewrite even if we have to skip CS5. I'm sure it'll take a couple of years, but if they get betas testers involved early like MS did with windows 7 then they could change the whole NLE market.
