Full Screen Layers in AE when import scene from Adobe Illustrator?

Dear Sirs

Do you have any idea how to fix this:

When I create scene in Adobe Photoshop and import in AftereEffects (lets say, a cartoon character with separated head, legs, arms etc. in layers) - this scene shows correctly (all layers are the size of the drawn object).

But when create scene in Illustrator, separate in layers and import in AfterEffects - all layers are FULL SCREEN.

Are there any workarounds to make us animating easier?

Thanks in advance!

Nick

Hm to be honest, I've realized that it works perfectly from time to time. I have no idea what causes layers with small graphics in 1920x1080 to be full screen that makes animating much harder (for selecting layers and finding layer you'd want to animate). So this "problem" is "solved" and I have no idea how... I suppose it is up to the way I am importing .ai file in AfterEffects.

Select "Composition, retain layer sizes" when importing.

I've found what I did - I've accidentally (probably using mouse-wheel) added .AI scene into AE and, like you said, I've selected Scene only, not Scene with Retain Layer Sizes! It was my mistake. Thank you!
