    Question about Workflow between Premiere and After Effects

    Aegis Kleais Level 3

      Hey guys, I have Production Premium CS5 (Premiere and AE)


      One thing that has always confused me was basic workflow between these 2 products.  Is it best to get your clips, but them into sequence, do the basic effects that Premiere supports and output into the  highest quality video in order to take into AE and apply effects to?


      Or should I take video footage, do my After Effects work, export that as a clip that will then be used in the video composition in Premiere?  I know I don't want to move a project too many times between because of compression, so what would the most optimized workflow be?


      FYI, I am doing a lot of video game frag movies, so I have a lot of effects I like to put into it.
