I've answered your Warp Stabilizer questions on the After Effects forum where you cross-posted much of this:
Regarding performance and Dynamic Link:
After Effects is not a real-time application. It's expected (and, granted, annoying) that a piece of a sequence in Premiere Pro that refers to a dynamically linked After Effects composition will often play back not at real-time speed. In some cases, if it's a heavy After Efects composition, you are better off rendering out an intermediate file if you need real-time preview in Premiere Pro for that segment. There's some more information here.
BTW, since you're making the transition from FCP, you should check out this page, where I've collected some resources to make that easier.
> but there is a red bar over the AE dymanically linked footage meaning it can't be played in real time.
That's not exactly what that means.
Thank you for the answer.
If I'm able to look at the AE footage / segment that I'm correcting in it's entirety (via RAM preview) the computer has done the work, and I've waited out the rendering process to see that preview. Why does that go away when i switch back to premiere?
Isn't there some way that preview can be cached to disk, so it plays when premiere passes over that segment? It seems silly that it just drops the RAM preview, and doesn't utilize it to make a smooth playback of the dynamically linked file.
I'm just trying to figure out a workflow, where I can quickly correct a shakey shot, and keep editing in premiere. the way my brain works, I really need to see my sequences play in real time with audio, I can't have frequent sections (that i've AE corrected) suddenly stop playback, or drop out... it will make me go crazy. :-)
Sorry, I'm still uber new to AE. And am having trouble even understanding the normal playback (spacebar) it seems to render (green) as it works through the clip, which speeds up the playback, but the green "i'm sort of rendered bar" only lasts so long during playback before the earlier part in the timeline begins erasing it's self, instead of being retained.. so you can only work with relatively short segments that are sort of optimized for faster playback.... this seems strange in that if it rendered it for that playback, why doesn't it keep it on disk until something changes in the composition that requires it to be re-rendered?

Just render the sequence in Pr that contains the linked AE comp. You do that by pressing the Enter key.
If you want to talk about the details of how previews work in After Effects, let's do that over on the After Effects forum.
Regarding why the RAM cache isn't shared between After Effects and Premeire Pro: That's a good feature request. You can submit feature requests here.
Thanks Jeff, that helps. For whatever reason, on my machine when i hit enter, it just tried to play the video, but by selecting "render entire workarea" that rendered the .aep file in the premiere timeline, and at least allowed it to playback in real-time, so I can see the AE edited file in my sequence...
Thanks for the info. I made a feature request, but I'm not sure that I articulated clearly the message. (it's hard to explain
something I still don't have a clear understanding of) :-)

Thanks. This is a need that we're aware of, so we'll be able to translate what you wrote easily. Making a request for something like this is more like casting a vote than suggesting something new---and those votes really matter in helping us set priorities for the next version.
