Hi,
I am importing layered Illustrator Files as comps, either as comp size or as layer size, and when I open the comp, the layers are showing as image sequences .. They have a different icon than normal.

I will attach a screen grab ..


I am using in AE cc 2017.
Yesterday this problem was not there ...

Anyone else experiencing this? Any help appreciated .. Just started a new project with a short deadline!

Thanks

when importing, did you make sure the sequence checkbox is off?

Hey,

You need to make sure that the Illustrator file is made in RGB mode and not CMYK.

Best-

Thanks, I had already checked and the error remains .. The AI files are all RGB

Its a simple fix, it also stumped me for a while.

When promted to select file to import into AE, click the options button on bottom left of finder and uncheck sequence.

I also came across this issue today and the only way I was able to fix it is by changing how I named my files. When I have them named Scene 1, Scene 2, Scene 3 and so forth they come in as a footage sequence no matter what I do. But when I name them things such as Gas Pump Scene and Cloud City Scene they come in as ai layers. I don't know if this is adobe testing a new thing without telling us or what. Either way I really don't know if that was what fixed it. But it seems to work.
