    So silly: How do I open this clip into After Effects?

    msp1518 Level 1

      Okay, this is what I hate about the tutorials. They leave out the crucial first step. Like opening a clip from PremPro into After Effects.

       

      If I right click on the clip in question, I see Replace With After Effects Composition, but when I click that, all I get in After Effects is a black image and no way of doing anything.

       

      I'm lost. I want to take a clip, open it in AE and then covert it to B&W. But I can't convert to B&W if I cannot do something as simple as open the clip in AE.

       

      There has got to be a tutorial for this somewhere, but as usual I ain't finding it. Sorry.
