So I'm having some trouble importing specific filetypes into my version of After Effects. When I select File>Import and select an animated .gif I'm trying to work on, it simply doesn't do anything. No dialogue error box, nothing. Same thing when I try to physically drag the file into the work window, no reaction at all from the program. I tried converting the gif to .mov, .mp4, even saving it as a .webm from the browser, and still no dice- same problem. However, when I imported a separate .png file, it immediately appeared in my Project window as it should.
This problem only recently started happening, leading me to believe that it may be a compatibility issue between my new OS and the older version of After Effects I'm using.
Any ideas as to how to fix this?
