Importing AI as Composition always "crops layers" regardless of settings?

Hello!

I'm using a fresh install of Windows7 64bit with AE CS4.

Problem: odd import behavior
When I import AI files using the setting "as composition," AE is always importing the files as if I had selected "composition - cropped layers"

If I do the same operation on a mac or win7-32bit it imports the AI file into a composition the size of the AI's artboard (which is what should happen).

What is odd is this hasn't always happened. I was importing AI files just fine a few days ago. I've recently reinstalled my OS/apps for unrelated reasons, but I had hoped this issue would have been resolved at the same time.


Any ideas?

thanks!

When you look at your AI file in Illustrator are all the objects inside the artboard borders? After effects will always crop anything outside the artboard size regardless of what settings you import it with.
