Dynamic link allows you to use the power of After Effects in Premiere Pro, but it is something that many people do not understand and so it is under-used. However, with dynamic link you can bring the power of motion graphics to your titles in PP with hardly any effort at all. In this tutorial Andrew Devis will explain the basics of dynamic link and then show you how to start a new AE composition in PP and use powerful motion graphic templates to animate your text. He then covers how to replace an item in your sequence with a new AE composition (i.e. a title) and lastly, how to use dynamic link to take the whole thing into Encore ready to make your DVD - all without rendering. However, please note the following: Dynamic Link only works with the Production Premium and the Master Suites. IT DOES NOT WORK ON STAND-ALONE PRODUCTS!

Some Help !!
by Joan Rodriguez
Hey Guys, Sorry to jump into you forum, but i'm new in this site and still don't really know how to find the best way to ask questions ! I saw that you guys were talking about Premiere and After Effect and decided to jump in.

I hope you can help me. I'm having series problem with my computer when I try to work with the two softwares, my computer get very slow. I work with Dynamic Link just by creating some simple Motion Graphic animations and then linking them to Premiere. I'm on CS5.

The video file have an .MTS extension. My computer is a brand new Mac Pro, here are the spec:

Processor 2 x 2.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

Memory 6 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC

graphics ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB

Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 (11E53)

The only problem that I see is that It does not have the total capacity for memory RAM, but yet I have 6 GB, which I think it should be enough. Every time I work with the two softwares, the computer becomes extremely slow, to the point that I can't get work done. At times it just crashes. I really hope you can help me !!!!

Hi Joan

The place for your question is really in the forum tab where you can search specific terms and also ask the question to a much wider audience!

As far as I can see from you system spec you should have more than enough capacity to do everything you need. The first question that comes to mind though is your memory settings in the programs. You need to share your memory out and not allow it to all be used on one program. You get to the memory settings through your preferences and need to make sure that you have reserved enough RAM for all your other programs (min 2G). And, I would also make sure the you are not rendering in AE with multiple processors as you simply don't have enough RAM for that to work.

Otherwise, you will probably need to ask in the forum and search in there for people who have similar systems and use similar foootage to you.

Lastly, Adobe made some significant improvements to dynamic link in both CS5.5 (it became 2 way) and especially in CS6. So, with the CS6 release I know that dynamic link is really working far better than it ever did in CS5.

All the best with sorting out your issues - there are some really clever and helpful people in the forum.

Hi Chris

I'm pleased you found the tutorial helpful, there is one for dynamic link of the AE workflow as well - slightly different but lots of similarities.

As for the AE skills, there are lots of great tutorials on the COW for AE so I would advise starting there and seeing how you get on. I have a few myself which are great for getting you kick-started with presets etc ... if you get time have a watch.

All the best
Andrew

Hi Vivek
To be honest, I don't know of any way to get smooth playback without hitting the enter key while looking at your PP seqence to render the un-rendered sections (the bits with the red-line over the top of them). As you know, this takes time to do, but it should give you a smooth playback prior to the final rendering out of the project. Otherwise, it probably comes down to a function of how good your computer and graphics card are and how much RAM you have. I am using a laptop with a graphics card, but neither of them has a great deal of RAM so it looks especially jumpy.

Sorry not to be of more help ... maybe someone else will know a good tip?

Thanks !!
That was a very useful tutorial . I had been experimenting with dynamic link all these days recently ,it is indeed a wonderful option by adobe ,but I did feel bad for 1 reason ,well editing is all about previews ,we take so many previews to judge our video ,if its good or not from the audience point of view ,right ? now getting compositions into PP and previewing is possible ,but as you said it just does not go smooth to judge it with respect to other clips and that's really irritating ,is there no other alternative for a smooth playback ,like are there not plug-ins to have a RAM preview in AE kinda thing for PP .I am desperate to find such a plug-in if there is any .Also if at least ENCORE can do the smooth preview of compositions that would be great . All this for just saving the rendering time !!! It would be great to know if there is any alternative other than rendering .

Cooking With Premiere Pro CC on PBS's America's Test Kitchen

As America's Test Kitchen enters its 15th season on PBS, they've made the switch to Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Post-production Supervisor and director Herb Sevush has been with the show from the beginning, and confessed some trepidation moving away from FCP 7, but has found it to be a great fit for their data-intensive, increasingly 4K multicam production, and his work with remote editors. Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.
