No. You must EXPORT them out of AI as a .PSD and then you cna import a layer based graphic into Action.

Thanks Brian,

Can I take that to mean then, that Smoke does not support import of any kind of vector based graphics? Bit of a bummer if thats true. I envisioned importing logo's and the like and extruding them within Smoke. Is that not possible?

Sadly that is not possible. It has been know to convert the vectors to a FONT and then use 3D text.
