copy just the required clips to a new destination and transcoded the files to an Avid uncompressed codec to colour correct.
I'm not sure why you would take this step... maybe I'm missing something?
Why don't you just apply your Mojo color correction while you are working
in Ae and use Dynamic Link back to Pr?
the files from the canon camera are seriously compressed so any colour correction produces horrendous results. I have to transcode to an uncompressed format before doing any colour correction
trying to match the colour between clips switching back and forth between programs is really hard, tho is this what is normally done?
If it were me, I'd leave the clips as they are and use Colorista II in Premiere Pro for CC work. Chances are you'll produce quite useable results form this method.
this does work for basic colour correction but not when trying to grade an entire suqence to achieve a specific style, applying a vingette or certain effects have to be done in after effects.
I want to try and get my whole sequence into after effects but preserve the edits and effects added in permier pro, is there any way to do this?
I have a similar issue... I film a tv show for PBS. I shoot in low light so I use magic bullet denoiser in AE. if I do any Looks CC in Premeire It erases it completely when I bring the file back into Premiere from AE.. Maybe I can color correct after the DL has been made in the original composition. Side note... I take the final sequence and drop it into a new sequence so that I can denoise one large clip and not a bunch of small clips..
