BUG: Dynamic link between PR and AE broken with April 2020 release
Here's the bug description (I copied a post by alekseyg79178945 in the Adobe Support Community - he explains it very well):
"The current situation is as follows: I have a Premier project in which there are several dynamic links to 3 different AE projects. The first type of links to 3D animation, the second type of links to text animation, and the third type of links to 3D animation in AE. Until the April update, everything worked fine.
After the April update in Premiere, the project links are loaded from only one AE file. The rest of the AE files do not load, even if I forcibly used Link Media.
After several attempts to figure out the situation and find out what the problem is, I realized the following:
If Premiere Project have Dynamic Links to more than one AE project, it will only load the link to the project that is curently loaded in AE, and will completely lose touch with other projects."
Trying to relink the offline AE projects you will only get an "unknown error occured".
I'm having the exact same problem. Dynamic link basically is unusable this way. Please, please, please take a look at this bug!!

Dynamic Linking between AFX and Premiere is deeply flawed. It isn't seamless at all. If I switch too quick between applications one of them will crash. If that doesn't;t happen sequences in Premiere will go offline if AFX is busy saving. Ot it will just go offline because it feels like it.
I know a lot of editors that flatly refuse to use it. Im getting to that pint. On the latest version 15 and AFX 18.
Sort it out!

Still experiencing this today. wtf?
I haven't tried yet... no time for experiments at the moment with clients waiting for their stuff.
But please report back ;-)

Interesting to see if this was fixed with the latest update!
