    Hi there

    I want to learn AF and would like to find out which is the best training program for it
    can you bring projects from prem to AF and have them open up in AF and still have all the filters you have used in prem to work in AF and then once you have done your work in AF can you re-import that same project back into prem and have all the work you did in AF work in Prem
    i hope that made sense

    Yes, you can go back and forth between Premiere Pro and AE. But, what versions of each of the products are you using? Also, nothing beats Total Training. Check them out:

    Their prices may be a little steep, buts it’s $$ well spent.

    a short while ago I had never opened after effects. i knew photshop, illustrator and fcp though, so short of the cash for training cd’s i sat down and did all the AE tutorials here at the cow, top to bottom. that got me to a decent level in about a month. start with that and by cd’s later if you ask me. good luck /d

    i am using prem1.5 and AF 6 i think i need version AF6.5 to work with prem 1.5
    so everything that i do in prem will show up in AF as a project and everything i do AF will show in Prem

    At the risk of sounding obvious, the best training for me, is the manual. It tells you in the most efficient way how to do do what you need.

    Then get “Creating motion graphics” to learn the “why”.

    The filters will not work back and forth with those versions of the software. The edits from Premiere will all be there, (It’s waaaay better to edit in Premiere,) but no filters. And it doesn’t work the other way around either. Even things like cross fades don’t work.

    Edit in Premiere, do effects in AE, render, output. If you only need an effect for a short clip, only render the short clip in AE.

    Dude, upgrade! 6 to 6.5 was totally awesome, imagine what 6-7 will feel like!
