Replacing premiere film with AE not working...colored bars replace file!

When I click on a video clip on my timeline in my Premiere Pro project, then click to replace it with an AE composition, AE opens and prompts me to save a new composition file. I create a new file, and it clearly reads the video file named is on here. But, it replaces the video with these colored bars in AE AND my original premiere video. How can I get my video project to pull up in AE without these problems? I did it just like the tutorials told me to. I have the new 2018 version or all the products.

Go to the project panel. Double click on the file with the colour bar icon that’s missing. This will open a dialogue box where you can locate the missing file on shift on that the project will work fine.

I'm noticing that your "footage" file has a .aep extension, which implies that it's actually an After Effects file already.
Just to confirm, was this actually a video file when it was on your Premiere timeline? What was the original file extension?

If it's already a dynamically-linked AE project on your Premiere timeline, I can see how looping it BACK into AE would probably not work out. It's not exactly a circular reference, but it certainly doesn't seem like something the pipeline would have been designed for.

If it is indeed a video file that is somehow having its file extension changed by being sent to AE, then that does indeed seem strange, and certainly qualifies for filing a bug report.
