AE CS4 on a Mac
Whats up everybody.
I was working on a rough cut in Pre pro.
1-I did a special effect morph compostion in AE, rendered out a movie and placed it Pre pro instead of doing dynamic link.
2-I finished all the editing and COPIED the Pre Pro time line and PASTED into AE, so that i can do work on each clip in AE.
3-Now that everything is in AE I want to replace the rendered movie with the original AE Project as a precomp.
4-However, when I FILE IMPORT the morph AE project into the new AE project, in comes in as a folder with all of the various assets, not as a single composition.
Is it possible to bring in the morph AE Project into the project panel as a compostion and then replace the rendered movie by option dragging from the project window to the highlighted rendered movie in the timelin.
Hope I explained that cleary,
Thanks in advance
I'm slightly confused... If there was a composition in the original project, AE would/ should import it just fine. Yes, it will be placed in the original project's import sub-folder, but it should still be findable/ retrieveable. Other than that there should be no problem swapping assets. A layer is a layer, no matter its source...
You are absolutely correct.
But last night when I wrote this either I was sleepy and did not see the comps or the program was acting up and only the footage items were there.
