Is there a way to move clips between Premiere and After effects?

So I was working in Premiere Pro with a quite large Drone MP4 clip that I wanted to ad some tracking text to which I believe is only possible to ad in After effects. Didnt find a way to transport the trimmed down clip from PP to AF so I instead brought the full (big droneclip into AF to use the "3D camera tracking" effects on. The problem was that it then took 1 1/2 hour to analyze because the full clip is so huge (I think).

 

So could I have brought the trimmed clip, which is only a fraction of the original into AF for faster analyzing and then just do the effect and then somehow transport it back in a easy manor to PP where I want to finish the editing?!

 

Kind regards

Copy as in ctrl+C trimmed clip from the project window and paste as in Ctrl+V in Ae.

 

Or right click on clip in timeline and hit Replace with Ae Compositon.

I did some research and found a video explaing how you could open the project file from PP in AF but when I try to do that in AF I only get the 3 folders that I imported into the project in PP in the beginning (Photos, droneclips and Osmo Pocket) so I cant access the videoclips from my PP project and edit it in AF?!

I trim the clip in PP to just what I'd need in AE (not AF) then export that as ProRos and import the clip into AE.

Update 2

I tried rightclick the clip in PP and use the "Replace with after effects composition" but that is greyed out? Do I need to do something with the clip before im able to use that function?!

Thanks Ann for the answer, it took me a while before I realized it had copied it but was under a different tab in the window......

Now a follow up, Im done with the file in AE, how is the best/easiest way to transport this AE file back into my alreeady opene project in PP? Should I save the file as something and then drag drop it into my project in PP or is it a easy way to just send it back in the AE app?!

I tend to avoid Dynamic Link.

I render out to Prores 4444 and drop that into Premiere.

Could you please explain I have no clue at what Prores 4444 is and why is it better then using a dynamic link?
