My video intro and outro are created in after effects. I want to use them in my Premiere Pro videos but I also want to archive these Premiere Pro projects after I'm done. I don't know yet how to do that, but I basically want to gather (and probably zip) every single file used in that PP project so that I can not break it later by removing, renaming, or deleting files that this project depends on.
As far as I know, there are 2 ways in which I can get an AE composition into PP: Either by rendering that clip and using it like a normal video, or by using the "Dynamic Link" functionality.
The former option would be the easiest way to get my intro and outro into PP, and then later gather and archive the files. The problem is the huge file size of the generated clips. I get several GB for that 11-second intro clip. Remember that I wanna archive each video separately, meaning that each project will have its own copy of that intro and outro clip.
Dynamic links don't generate large files but I don't know if my "gather and archive" process will even work with dynamic links. I have a feeling that it will not work.
What do you recommend to fix my problem? Should I just render a smaller file from AE? But then I am afraid to lose too much quality. What file type do you recommend?
