Can I import a complex unrendered AE CS4 composition into Premiere Pro CS4, add a sound file, and export it in H.264 or any other format without rendering it in Premiere Pro first?
I already started the export in Media Encoder. After 45 minutes, it says there are still about 6 hours to go. My projects drive is picking up an MP4 file (0 bytes), an MP4 video file (52kb), and an ADTS audio file (8kb). Will it work?
Personally...I would have created an Intermediate in AEFX then used that in PPro.
This is a way of checking that AEFX did its job properly and eliminates a lot of rendering during encoding processes..
