how to get transparency of illustrator layer in Aftereffects (not object transparency)

Hello Cows,

Does anyone know how to get Illustrator layer transparency when importing into AE?
i tried changing the opacity property in "appearance" "properties" and "transparency" but when i import the file in AE it brings in all layers with 100% transparency.

PS: i need this as when converting Illustrator layers to AE native shapes it creates shape layers with 100% opaque, however it respects layer transparency (if the original AI layer has any)

thanks in advance!
m.

If an Illustrator LAYER has no background, it is transparent.

Do you know how to properly prepare Illustrator files for AE, or are you doing this intuitively?
