Passing altered files between After Effects and Premiere

I'm just starting to work with AE 5.5 production bundel

I have footage from 2 cameras that I wanted to color correct in AE and then edit in Premiere

So I imported the project I had made in Premiere to AE- created an adjustment layer for the clips that needed the correction

Now I want to render the clips so that I don't need to make a new Premiere project- Thus I need to alter the orrigional footage insted of making copys of the originals.

Can you do this? If not, how can I get Premiere to render each layer under the adjustment layer as a seperate file?

--Visual representation--


A=Adjustment layer
C1-C4= Clips needing rendering as either altered origional footage or each as seperate clips.

EDIT your footage FIRST! It is a lot harder process and can really
change how you look/see your movie. This also can change which
shots you connect and therefor how they should look to you.

A movie's feeling can change dramatically from on edit to the next
if you want.

The question is how do you do color correction AFTER you are
done with editing. You can IMPORT Premiere project DIRECTLY
into After Effects. BUT, the only thing it will import is the
footage and straight cuts. So things like (fancy) transitions and
dissolves will NOT be imported.

I would suggest you simply export the project from Premiere to
Microsoft DV/AVI or to uncompressed AVI and import that into
After Effects. After you are done there you can export it either
to a DVD package for example or back to tape in DV format.
