Importing Layered Illustrator CS4 File to After Effects 6.5

Hello Professionals,

I'm importing a layered Illustrator CS4 file into After Effects 6.5. I have tried to import it as a composition and a footage. Both ways resulted as a flat layer in After Effects.

It used to let me import Illustrator CS2 file as layers if I import it as a composition. Did I miss anything?

Thank you for your help.

A couple of versions, perhaps? Can't you save Illustrator files as an earlier version?

AE 6.5 roughly corresponded with Illustrator 10. Illustrator CS4 may be too much of a stretch.

Thank you, Dave! I saved it to Illustrator CS 2 and AE 6.5 imported it in layers.
