i too have this problem. dynamic link wit encore works great..after effects, forget it. just blank compositions and odesnt do anything.
> I believe at that time I closed AE completely without saving the composition.
You need to save the After Effects project, too.
I would assume he did if the AE effects are still there in the PP sequence. It may simply need to be found.
See, that's what I would think to, but I'm almost sure I did not save the linked comp in AE.
Not on my computer now, but I could check on lunch.
I guess I could just create a dummy project in PP, open a linked comp thru Dynamic Link, do a few changes in AE, render/sync to PP, and then close AE w/o saving and see what happens?
Are there any good walkthroughs you guys are aware of? I'm reading how pre-CS5, Dynamic Link was really only a "one-way" street, but that has changed in CS5.
Here's the thing about the Replace function. When you do it, the first thing that happens is AE asks you where to save the project, and what to call it. So before you even got into AE to apply your effects, you saved it somewhere.
You just have to remeber where.
I'm sure you figured this out by now, but did you try "Edit Original"?
I am having an issue where 'linked' comps in AE will not play back in PP with effects added - is the only way to 'render' the AE linked comp to lossless format and import or "Replace with clip??" in PP??? Any ideas??
