I have the full version of Adobe Master Collection CS4. Because Prem Pro CS4 was so full of bugs I had to upgrade Prem Pro to CS5.5 last May to finish a project for a client. I could not afford or want to upgrade the entire collection as I hardly use many of the software packages supplied.
Now that I need to work with files between Prem Pro and AE I upgraded my AE to 5.5. I pulled in a project to Prem Pro CS5.5 and then selected a section of a clip and selected "replace file with AE file...(the wording might be a tad different but you get the idea) in the drop down menue. Now I get the message I need to upgrade the "entire" Master Collection in order to use this feature. I don't get it! Why would I need to upgrade software that I don't use for video work??? Is there a way I can use these two software packages to work and link together like they used to in CS4? I know I can still pull up my CS4 programs but Prem Pro CS4 is useless to me because of its bug issues. I just can't afford to upgrade the entire collection to use two programs since I had already paid over $500 to upgrade these two programs. Help. Thanks.
The dynamic link feature is part of the MC or the Production Premium package. It's always been that way. You'll have to copy your clip from Premiere and paste it into AE, then render and replace the footage.
Thank you. This I can do and I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question so quickly. Cheers.
