AE Dynamic links go offline every time I open a project
Premiere 14.01 and AE 17.02 - Our AE dynamic links are offline every time we open a Premiere project, even if the previous time we worked on it they were all showing up. Opening up that specific AE project, then closing Premiere and re-opening the Premiere project seems to bring them back, sometimes. Please fix this issue! We are having the same issue on 2 different workstations.

Mine does the same. I have to open the AE file in order to relink them. Or if I open the AE file BEFORE opening the PP file, they remain linked. That is until I export the comps. If I export any comps, PP loses all dynamic comps and they have to be relinked.
I'm using the latest versions of the software, but dynamic linking has been less and less reliable with each update for several years.

Had the same issue with up to date versions of both - seemed to be solved by quitting AE before going back to Prem - worth a shot

Same problem here. Every time I make changes in AE-file and switch back to Premiere, everything goes offline. Restarting Premiere usually solves the problem, but now it's not updating the sequences where I made changes. I cleaned the caches and all that, but still not working.

Totally unusable. I have to relink everytime I make an adjustment in AE, and relinking most of the time crashes Premiere. Really working against me and costs me so much extra time. But i'm used to that with Premiere. Dynamic Link was the main reason for me for using Premiere, so now that is gone, I'm switching to Resolve.

I also have this issue and it's incredibly frustrating. Adobe promotes Dynamic Linking as a big feature but I have found it to be highly unstable at best. I still revert to rendering out in AE and importing into Premiere to stop me from losing my mind.

Matt were you able to solve this issue? I'm having the same problem as well

I'm having a lot of problems with Dynamic Linking as well. I have a long format show with tons of dynamically linked clips. Every time I switch to AE to make a change and resave the project, all of the linked clips are offline when I switch back to Premiere. Closing and reopening the Premiere project does not relink the files. I have to manually relink in Premiere each time. Hugely frustrating.
