    I believe I have figured it out. If you create anything from premiere to AE, but you have multiple AE files, if premiere and AE are open at the same time, it will say some files are missing. They aren't, and you don't do anything about it. Just save your file, close premiere, then open again. It will continue to work fine until you open something different in AE.

    It's really sad that Adobe likely won't do anything about this bug until enough people vote for it.

    Have you tried disabling all but one graphics card? This has been a problem in the past. Chances are Adobe just screwed it up again. They are a very siloed company, so this happens frequently, and it also holds back changes. I think that's why we get stupid new features, that no one wanted, that aren't connected to anything. But anything that's connected to another silo takes Forever to happen, or never happens at all.
    One thing you can try doing here is rendering with software mode. If that works, you're probably on the right track and you can fiddle around with graphics cards. I have an external graphics card, and noted this issue before. Most people don't have two completely different NVidia cards, so they probably didn't notice the issue. But the issue Also has happened with an nVidia card and the built in intel card. But after disabling the intel card as well, AME worked.

    I almost forgot, and this is a terrible workaround, but when I first updated to 2022 I had this same issue. AE couldn't render to AME. But premiere could. So I created a premiere project, put the AE compositions I needed into new premiere sequences (Awesome how they can't even call them the same thing between the two software right? lol) and then render from Premiere.
    At the time, I still couldn't use AME, but at least I was able to render them one at a time. The alternative would have been to render out image sequences from within AE, THEN use AME to put those together into the format I needed because AE doesn't render with the same settings AME has. I needed H.264 with specific settings.
    Good luck to you folks still being ignored. Hopefully you find something that works.

    One other thing that is just plain stupid is Adobe created a LUTs folder for AE and a LUTs folder for Premiere. They are the exact same set of LUTs!
    But still, like you mention, it won't find them.
    AND if you use a custom LUT using the "browse" feature, Premiere Surely knows the path right? That path doesn't come across to AE. Not only that, but when AE asks you to find the LUT, it doesn't tell you which one it's looking for!!! So if you do something like send over several sequences/clips at once to AE and they all have a couple luts to find, you'd just hoping to get them right.
    There's also the issue of color workflow management. What bit depth is Premiere working in? It's not 8bit, but is it 16, 32? Sending something from Premiere to AE should set AE up to be the same, but it doesn't.

    2022 and Still no arrowheads?
    No, no, it's ok guys, because you can just create a null for every line you need an arrowhead, attach it to the path, then do this, then do that. 3 layers later, a couple expressions, and you've got an arrowhead. And you have 30 layers you need to do that to? Well then that's going to take you a few hours.
    WTF adobe!? You've got it in illustrator. Can you just add it to AE already?

    This is a great request that is certainly something we want to implement. Rest assured our engineers DO understand the importance of this feature and how to get the job done. We also know that the performance and stability of the app should be our #1 priority and that is where our focus is right now.

    Please don't pay attention to how many/few votes are on this one. You know this is needed, so just do it.

    You should also expose this to Premiere, so users can move them there. It must be that you're moving the protected region based on percentage. If it's starting 25% of the way it, it's scaling to start at 25% of wherever you're at. Allow the user to drag that, AND have access to that percentage (or however you're actually positioning the section).
    This way we could even send over that number to premiere via the Essential Graphics panel. Suddenly you need it in the middle of one, so you change the number to 50%, and Boom. I don't want to have to cut the thing a bunch of times just to get things landing where I want them. It starts to defeat the purpose of the tool pretty quickly.

    So they listed this as a bug on the info page. BUT, I have no audio, and I Also am not getting it to work with my comp. But I Am using expressions on some layers to move objects and have to wonder if that's what's going on. They Really need to list what you Can/Can't do. Maybe stop me from doing something that isn't going to work.
    It works fine in AE, but it's not working in Premiere, and I have no idea why.

    I'd like a few more options, so I'll add them here.

    Select say, 6 objects. You want them all to align to one that is already in the correction position, but the options should be say, Left boundary, right boundary, center, or ANCHOR POINT. That isn't currently available.

    If you want to get really fancy, you could also add the ability to look at transparency. You may have assets that are all say 400px wide, exported from the same photoshop or illustrator file. But some may be more narrow than their bounding box in terms of transparency.

    Regardless of how for it is taken, it is pretty sad that aligning To an object hasn't been added and this has been requested for years. This shouldn't be a feature that is even looked at in User Voice. Someone from Adobe should see this and just add it to be developed.

    Also, it makes me angry when people make excuses why it's not there, claiming AE is for animation. Well that's bogus.
    I've got things aligned to a line on the left. Now I want them to move some place in the middle, and align to some place on the right. Correct, that's animation. And the start and end need to align. You know what's great for aligning things? ALIGN TOOLS!!!!

    Maybe you're cool with eyeballing everything. I prefer working faster, and spending my efforts on how the movement works rather than spending time making a guide, then zooming in and carefully placing the objects where they need to go.
