AE and PR can both handle HDV without problems. You may have made an OE (Operator Error). What was your workflow, what steps did you take?
I'm able to import m2t files into both AE and PP, but am not sure of the best format to export fro either application that will maintain optimum quality/filesize. i.e. if i could export in the same m2t format, that would probably be work, but I cant find those settings.
I've experimented with dynamic link, but am not up to speed on it yet.

Not that hard, really. And definitely you're best option.
Thanks Jim, I'm getting it figured out. Once I learned to open PP4 sequences
in AE it got better. Originally I was trying to export clips from PP4, then
open them in AE4 but didn't know which format/codec to use. Dynamic link is
definetely better, once I understood it was only a one way street per use.
Still got a ways to go though!
