Hi!

 

I have a Premiere Pro timeline with  many linkes After Effects compositions (about 8 comps).

 

Whenever I'm working in After Effects to change something and I save the project, ALL linked compositions in Premiere Pro go Offline. I need to relink them, and I can relink them no problem, becasue the project hasn't gone anywhere and hasn't changed name, but I lose my render files in Premiere and constantly relinking is being a total drag for my workflow.

 

Does anyone know if there's a fix for that?

All of the dynamically linked comps in Premiere Pro should ideally be in the same AEP (project) file. If that is not the case I've seen things get lost if you have a bunch of project files. I always start the dynamic link process by opening AE first, then keeping AE open as I add new shots converted to comps. 

 

If my AE dynamically linked comps are at all complex and it takes several seconds a frame to render, I always undo the replace with AE comp in Premiere Pro, label the clip and change its color, then render the comp to a production format (not MP4 ever), import it into PPro and drop the rendered file right above the original shot. This is a lot faster in the long run because every time you change a comp that is dynamically linked to Premiere Pro the previews have to be re-rendered using AE in the background and that's always slower than just rendering the file. The more complicated the Comp the more likely you will have preview and rendering issues in Premiere Pro.

 

Most of my VFX work is done a shot at a time so I hardly ever use Dynamic Link. I just open AE, save the file, create a 10-second comp the same size and frame rate as my Premiere Pro sequence, then copy the shots in Premiere Pro and Past them to the new comp in AE. This creates a new comp in the Project panel for every shot in the timeline that I selected. It is a lot faster than creating a comp from selected and undoing the action in Premiere Pro. The original comp is just a placeholder and is never rendered. The only thing it does is set the frame size and frame rate for the new comps created from the selected footage.

I am having the same issue. I have am AE project with 8-10 dynamic link compositions from a premiere project. Everytime I wish to change something or add a new composition into the project from premiere and save the AE project, all of my dynamic links become offline in premiere. It's super easy to link them back up but like Bernat says, I have to re-render all of my comp clips in premiere which is proving to be quite frustrating and time consuming! I am only seeing this issue from October onwards within this forum - could this be an issue with a previous update?
