View Full Version : after effects cs5 won't open .aec file from c4d

05-19-2010, 04:52 PM
hey, I'm trying to open a .aec file from c4d r11.5 in after effects cs5, but when I try to import in after effects the .aec file is greyed out when all acceptable files is selected in the enable drop down, if I try to change the drop down to "All Files", then select the .aec file and click open it gives me an error saying "After Effects Error: Failed to connect to Adobe premiere pro dynamic link. (86 :: 1)". Anyone have an ideas? Thanks in advance for the help!

Is it the latest version of the plug-in? As a workaround, simply import it in CS4 and open the AE project then in CS5...

I have After Effects CS3, CS4, and CS5 installed on the same computer, and they work fine. Just make sure that you install the earlier version before installing the later version.
