I'm very new to AE so please excuse my ignorance!
I have created a basic title plate for a series of videos using AE and create the rest of the video using Premiere Pro. I insert the AE title plate into PP as a AE file, as opposed to rendering it in AE and importing it into PP as a video.
In the composition, there are various text elements and an image which are differerent in each video. What I do at the moment is open the file in AE, make the appropriate changes and save it as a new file each time. Is there a more efficient way of changing the text for each video? I was thinking that there might be a way of defining the text elements as parameters or something and changing these from PP. Is this possible or is there a better way than what I'm doing at the moment?
I'm using CS4 if that makes any difference?
No, unfortunately you cannot access layers inside an AE project via Dynamic Link. You may of course turn the thing upside down and import your Premiere Pro sequence as a Dynamic Link item into AE (which works in CS4), but to you that may not have any advantages at all.
