I have a bunch of footage, each about 1 minute-long, that I'm cutting in Premier into a collection of 3-second highlight shots. What I want to do is take some of those 3 second clips and add a couple of effects in AE.
When I select the trimmed shot in Premiere and select "Replace with After Effects Composition", all I get is a blank composition that is 1 minute long (not 3 seconds like how I trimmed it in the Premiere sequence editor).
What I did to resolve the issue above is select the trimmed clip, then created a Subclip of it. Then when I selected "Replace with After Effects Composition" it then created a blank composition in AE that was 3 seconds long.
Ok fine, but that still doesn't resolve the blank AE composition. It will be super tedious to import each of the 1-minute footage files into AE and then re-find the 3 second section I already set in Premiere. Am I missing a step somewhere? How do I get After Effects to import that subclip automatically into the library? I tried to export the subclip from Premiere but couldn't find that option.
Is there a better workflow for what I'm trying to do?

Are you adding the trimmed clip to a matching sequence first?
I'm having this same problem a year later. The subclips are in the timeline when I send them to Ae
Anyone else come across this?

I'm using DSLR footage and am not running into this issue. However, another workaround you could do is, copy the trimmed/subcliped clip and paste it into AE. To get a sequence in AE to conform to the durration of the copied clip, use otp+command+v. I use this in replace of dynamic link, and works quite well. Hope that helps.
