I just double-checked importing a couple of Canon raw sequences in AE CS6 and it's working OK for me. There's no change in how this works from AE CS5.5. I need more information about what you're doing.
What model of Canon camera did the raw files come from?
Please post screenshots of:
- The Import dialog when you select your files.
- The Project panel after you import the sequence.
Your last screenshot shows that the sequence imported correctly in AE CS6. The sequence has a duration of 13s 8f at 10fps.
However, your comp is only 1f long. When you create the comp, make sure to edit the duration value. Or, do what I do and create the comp byt dragging the image sequence to the New Composition button at the bottom of the Project panel. Then edit the comp settings if you need to change the frame size, etc.
(I understand your complaint about performance. Raw files are slow. Best way to help with that is to file a feature request. Please include detailed information about your workflow and why speedy access to raw files is important to you. Specific details helps us to prioritize improvements.)
Wow Tim thanks for the quick response. That was it. Thanks for your patience with newbies like me. Now if I can get my project to render out using Avid's DNxHD ( keeps erroring).
