Importing Premiere Projects

Surprisingly, After Effects hasn't always played so well with another member of the Adobe family, Adobe Premiere. Luckily, the two programs have grown closer over time. Now that After Effects can import projects from Premiere 5 and later, it's simple to move work from Adobe's nonlinear editor for treatment in their advanced animation/compositing/effects program. The Premiere project appears in After Effects as a composition (in which each clip is a layer) and a folder of clips. In the composition, After Effects preserves the order of clips, their duration, in- and-out points, as well as marker and transition locations (Figure 2.57 and Figure 2.58). However, After Effects discards transparency, motion, and filter settings. Then again, you probably reserved any complex compositing, animation, or filtering for After Effects. You'll learn more about compositions starting with Chapter 4. For the moment, suffice it to say that now you can integrate Premiere's advantages in non-linear editing with After Effects superior compositing and effects features.
