Not sure which forum to post this as it involves PPr, but thought I'd start here. I'm a newbie and just created a little AE animation to get the feel of things (a fantastic package, when I get my head around all its possibilities!)
My animation has 2 text layers (although only one shows in the composition properties) and a solid layer with a lens flare and an audio track. Initially I thought I could export the finished scene to something like an AVI or Mpeg file but found my only options are swf, xfl or PPr. I chose PPr because I'd like to use this scene across several projects. But on opening in PPr, I get an error message saying "Editing mode used by this sequence could not be loaded. This sequence will be opened in desktop mode." I continue but the playback only plays the lens flare and audio; the 2 text layers are missing!?
My AE 3 layer types are:
audio layer: wav,
Lens Flare layer: solid folder with a black solid layer inside, and
Text layer: Composition
My overall AE settings are:
HDTV 1080 25
1920x1080 16:9 aspect locked
Everthing appears nicely in the AE playback and I'm not sure what I've done wrong for the text to disappear in PPr. Any hints to push me in the right direction would be very welcome.

I very strongly recommend that you begin here and work your way through the resources that it points to:
If you just jump into the middle, you are going to be very confused.
