Sound Effect to my trailer

Postby doopiedoopiedoo on 03/13/2017, 5:52 am

Hello,

Beginner here...

I'm looking for the best way to add Sound Effects to my motion graphics.

I can put the visuals together the way I like them in After Effects but I have trouble timing everything just right.

With regular video effects I use the linking option in Premieer Pro. I get that ,but what is the best way to go if I only have AE comps? Do I render them into footage so I can use Premiere Pro?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Erik

I think a linked AE project with the sound files in ae project is best. Keeps things organized.

It's much faster and easier for me to use linked projects and throw the SFX into Premiere. I find AE's handling of audio to be unusable except for very simple projects.

Thank you for your answers.

I have a project without any video and just text Comps with effects. I want to put them together in a main comp and time it to the sound effects.
If I render it and put it in Premiere I have no more control over my effects and text comps.
What is the best way to go about this?

(and sorry if this is a roll your eyes question. As stated, I'm a beginner)

Import the After Effects comps into your Premiere timeline. When you dynamically link in this way you can still hit "edit original" and work with your AE comps. They'll automatically update in Premiere when you save them.
