Hi, I have had a search on google and also a quick look through the forums but could not find anything on the subject so:
I am trying to import a project from Premiere to After Effects. The project itself is composed of many jpgs all placed one after the other and with the 'dissolve' transitional effect applied (stop-motion for all intensive purposes). However, when I try and import said project into After Effects, the transitional effects do not transfer across leaving me with just the images in the sequence (which look far less convincing without the dissolve applied).
Also, After Effects does not seem to preview the video properly whenever I begin using the aforementioned project (the small green bar that marks something as being rendered is quite jittery. Not sure if that is just a problem that occurs naturally when working with premiere projects on AE, but it is fairly annoying.
Anyone have any idea how to fix either of these issues or are they just inherent issues when working with Premiere projects on AE?
I suggest you read up on which effects and transitions are actually supported when importing Premiere projects into AE on the help and whether or not using DynamicLink would help in your case. As for the RAM preview bars - looks normal to me. Still images are only cached once to save RAM, if they don't move or have any otehr animation and effects applied. The bar will only go solid green during the actual preview, not while working or after stopping the preview.
ah, I see. Some what frustrating that dissolve is the only transitional effect that cannot be crossed over.
On subject of the preview bar, that was how it was how it looked while previewing my footage, although for some reason it has reverted back to the solid green bar today.
