Hello. I am having a sudden and strange problem.
I am trying to import a Premiere sequence into After Effects and am having the sequence show up as Footage. I have imported another sequence from the same project and it imported perfectly (sequential layers, footage, folders) but now my sequences are showing up as a timeline only viewable as one chunk of footage.
As a test, I tried to import the sequence that had imported flawlessly and now that one will not import as a comp, only footage.
When importing by File->Import->(click project) I see the drop down box for Import as: but I only have the option for Import as Footage, Import as Comp is greyed out. I get the Dynamic Link box for selecting the sequence, and it shows up as footage in AE.
When importing through File->Adobe Dynamic Link->(project name)->(sequence) I get the same result.
Am I missing something? Are there settings needed to be changed despite me not changing them in the first place?
I am on a Mac Pro, 8-core 2.66Ghz, 12GB RAM, using CS4 Master Collection
the behavior should change like this. What if instead importing from PP to AE, you export from PP to AE via the "create AE comp" context menu. Does it still behave like a footage ?
I could but I never had to do that before. Not even a week ago. It's a very strange turn of events.
I have found a workaround:
File->Import->Adobe Premiere Pro Sequence.
That imports the sequence as a comp the way it's always been for me in the past.
But still, it's just not working right the traditional way.
