Hey everybody, I use Production Premium CS4 and need help on the dynamic link between PP and AE. I right-click on a clip in PP, selecting 'Replace with After Effects Composition'. All works well and I make the changes required in AE. The changed footage is also displayed in PP.I save both AE and PP. As soon as I close AE, the footage in PP is replaced with a still image indicating that the link is broken. When I re-open AE, the clips' link is also broken. Why is the link broken as soon as I exit AE?

I'll appreciate it if someone couldplease help me.

Thanks a lot.

I don't know whyyour link is broken, but you still can recover it going to Project window, right click on the linked composition file, click Link Media and find your AE project... I hope it helps.
