[Bug] - Dynamic Link between AE & Premiere Pro requires selecting composition twice
Let me state that this behavior started before the last update, and I've been hoping that one of the recent patches would fix it.
I'll try to state the issue very simply. When importing an AE composition into Premier Pro via dynamic linking, I have to select the comp twice for it to actually import. I have a lot of AE compositions with editable text that I use for sports videos, so pre-rendering is not an option, and it is a real pain to have to import multiple times.
I found a dirty workaround which saves a little bit of time, which is to hit cancel the first time, and then select the composition when prompted the second time. Seems really silly to have to do that with professional software, however. Reading the forums, I found a couple of other people are having the same issue.

I can confirm this on PP 13.0.2 with Windows 1803.
So drag and drop an AE project file into PP (or use Media Browser)
Dialog opens asking which comp,
Select any one.
Expect that dialog to close and the comp to be imported,
instead, the dialog flashes like it closed and then immediately opens and you select your comp again, and then it is imported.
