Is it possible to import Open EXR Layers or do they just get all comped together on import?

if you are accessing your media through the gateway then you should see a little multi in the bottom right corner, this means that when you drag in your footage Smoke will automatically separate your layers for you.

Is the gateway regular library import or is there another way to bring stuff in?

the other older way is through the I/O tab which is 2 underneath the basic tab,
if you click on the I/O tab then on the import image tab, this will take you to the old import screen which lets you choose format on the bottom left,
its no where near as streamlined and user friendly as the gateway method.
There is one more way which is through wiretap central which i think is only in 2010(I may be wrong) , this involves a web browser/flash program and has since been changed to the gateway method

Thanks, I had found the import image way but it brings all layers in together unless I missed something. I had not used the gateway before so had to figure that out. It was amazing how much Googling it took to find that I just had to type in a url and this interface would pop up. This is Gateway Central I guess. Still not sure how to access the older Gateway but don't think I need to.

The newer gateway import method will be alot more intuitive for you to import the EXRs,

Heres a link to a good explanation of the new gateway ui interface
