Please do a quick test for me (PC), thank you very much

Hi there fellow Premiere Pro CC2014 users.
in relation to this earlier discussion (PremierePro PC 8.2.0 (65) replace footage causes error "The importer reported a generic error")
Could someone please do me huge a favor and test this simple set up?
create a premiere project
create a sequence
create a black video or color matte
right click the black video or color matte source item in the project bin area  (not the timeline)
Choose "replace footage" and pick any AE project .aep file you have.
If the feature works as I should, then a window should open showing the content of the AE project (comps)
if you on the other hand get a "the importer has generated a generic error" window pop up, then the feature is broken and have been so for a while (maybe since CC 6).
Please write your result back here. Thank you and happy holidays

Thank you for doing the test.
Let me explain why this I call this a severe bug then.
The work flow I describe here is just to keep the test as simple as possible to ease the workload of people willing to do the actual test. So please ignore the black video setup in it self.
Here is the real work flow where this feature is crucial for effeiciancy.
I make 3D animations and have been doing so for many years.
The way I usually produce a animation is that I set up animation clips / layers in 3DSMax and render out quick png viewport preview files for fast and efficient editing in premiere.
Once I am satisfied with the final cut of the animation in its preview state in general, I submit the animation layers from 3DSMax to the renderfarm to have it render out the final frames as .exr files.
As the individual animation clips / layers begin to emerge on the network, I am ready to do the Post Production part of the animation production.
And since post production work, masking, filtering, effects and stuff is much more suited for AfterEffects I import every final rendered animation clip / layer into AE and do post work on the individual clip.
Here is where the Bug is introduced!
As the clips are completed in AE, I begin to replace the preview clips in Premiere with the comps coming from the AE to finalize the project.
The way I used to replace the clips in Premiere, were by right clicking the individual preview sources in the Premiere project bin, Right click them and choose "Replace footage".
The reason why I am doing it this way compared to other replace methods, is that this is the only way the already edited clips in the timeline keeps their In/Out and freeze frame settings. Using any other replace method resets the clip, so all previous in/out, freeze frame settings are lost, meaning I would more or less have to reconstruct the entire timeline once more as I replaced the clips one by one.
Of cause I could just render out the comps from AE as uncompressed Avi sequences, but then I loose the benefit of the dynamic link workflow that these tools promote them self by.
I hope this has throw some light on the predicament and shows why it's extremely annoying that this bug has been introduced since version CC 2014.
Thank you : )

    My install of maverick failed as disk is damaged and cannot repaired. I tried to erase disk but got error disk cannot be unmounted. Please help. What can i do? Thank you very much.

    First have you got a backup of your data? If not try to get one now while you have some access to the drive. The drive is probably faulty and will need to be replaced, without the backup you risk losing the data.
    Have you a bootable external USB drive with Mavericks on it, if so boot from that and try and repair or erase the drive and reinstall Mavericks.
    If you don't have Mavericks on an external drive,  boot from you Leopard DVD ( I am presumimg your profile is correct) and run Disk Utility from there, you may be able to erase the drive and reload Leopard. You can then install Mavericks. Even if all that works you will most likely need a new drive in the near future.

  • I have an iPhone 4s just eight months, it is normal that the battery lasts only 3 hours? please help me thank you very much.

    I have an iPhone 4s just eight months, it is normal that the battery lasts only 3 hours? please help me thank you very much.

    Three hours if definitely NOT normal. I get at least 48 hours out my 2 year old iPhone 4S' battery with light usage. Did you do the iOS 7 update on the phone it self (OTA) or through iTunes? In my experience most problems are caused by the OTA updates. For this reason I ALWAYS update using iTunes on my computer.
    I would suggest restoring your phone using iTunes on your computer and setting it us as a new phone. This downloads a fresh copy of iOS 7.1 from Apple and installs it on your phone. Just make sure that you transfer all purchased items (apps, music, etc.) as well as photos to your computer before restoring as the restore will completely wipe your phone. Do not restore from a back-up. Yes, you will loose all your data on the phone but restoring a back-up can restore the problem you are currently having back to your phone. Once your phone has been restored you can manually sync back your apps and music.
    Before restoring you can also check to see that battery-killers like Location Services, Background App Refresh, etc are only turned on for the apps that really need it. I recently read and article that said that the Facebook app can be a real battery killer. If you have this app installed turn of location services and background app refresh for this app and see if that helps. Also go to Settings / General / Restrictions / Location Services / System Services and turn off all the options in that menu. Your phone does not need any of those to function. Constantly using your phone's GPS is a huge battery killer. I only have Location Services enabled for Find my iPhone and Background App Refresh is turned off completely.
    I hope this helps.

  • Hello every one. Please let me know what is the best mouse to use in a Photoshop? Thank you very much. Alex.

    Hello every one. Please let me know what is the best mouse to use in a Photoshop? Thank you very much. Alex.

    My ArtZ II is on a Win2K supplemental computer. I think that the main reason that I keep it around is the 12 x 12 ArtZ II.
    Next workstation will probably force that comupter into a closet and my beloved ArtZ II will probably go with it...
    Even on my laptop out on the patio, if I have to do almost anything in PS, or Painter, I'll go grab my Intuos 2 and hook it up, even though it's a 9 x 12 and a bit big for the patio table (works fine on my various desktop situations though). I cannot be without my tablets, though I am not a fan of the Wacom mice that I have tried (2 still in the box). Best mouse is my Logitec cordless (hated its keyboard and got rid of it in a second), which has nice weight, the right feel for my hand and is just great. Still, I only use it for the duties that the Wacom is not the best at. If I open up PS, or Painter, the mouse sits idle.
    Good luck to the OP,

  • Please help me to write a JavaScript script? Thank you very much!

    Hello everyone!
    In Acrobat 9 Pro Batch, execute JavaScript, please provide a script to add the footer and displays the date and file name,
    Thank you very much!

    Hi Tim,
    When you run an application it becomes a process. You can do stuff with the process. One thing is ui scripting which means that you're interacting with the user interface of tghe process. Some Processes don't have the same name as the application it was launched from, but usually they're named the same. You can try this:
    tell application "AlienBBS"
    activate
    end tell
    tell application "System Events"
    tell process "AlienBBS"
    keystroke (ascii character 29) -- right key
    delay 5
    keystroke (ascii character 28) -- left key
    end tell
    end tell
    You need to test it out and adjust.

  • Please Help---Thank you very much!

    Does anyone know how to embed an application program on a website, thus the users can run this application(say excel) on the website. One of my friends told me that I could use java applet, but can anyone tell me more about that issue?
    Thank you very much!
    -Iris

    It's not just the C++, the object code that you got from FORTRAN would need to be executed as well. This would be machine language for a particular machine (Windows, I guess if it's VC++). That's not how java works; it doesn't execute arbitrary local machine code, especially not via an applet.
    I think you have two more feasible options, rather than an applet, if you want users to be able to access the program via a web browser:
    1) Write a new UI around this application. In particular the new UI would be a CGI script. You can write CGI scripts in any language, including C++ and I presume VC++ as well. Then invoke this program through a web server. If you have to produce graphics, this becomes a little more complicated, but not terribly so.
    2) Rewrite the application as an ActiveX control? I have no idea how to do this but I believe it allows you to execute Windows object code via web browsers.

  • HT1937 Dear Sirs, i have a sugestion to the Apple that: in IOS7 you should add a funtion time limited for a call. For example after talking 10 minutes the phone will hang up. Thank you very much.  Truly, Nguyen Tuan Thinh

    Dear Sirs,
    I have used an Iphone 5 for some months ago. But I cannot find the way to hang up automatically. So I suggest to the Apple that in IOS7, you should ad that function. For example, after talking 8 or 10 ... Minutes, the phone can hang up automatically. Because, there are many services provider promost 10 minutes free.
    Thank you very much.
