Using AfterEffects CS6 with the latest patch (11.0.1).. We have several PNG frame sequences (output from 3dsMax & Mental Ray) that we usually load into AfterEffects for manipulation and rendering. With the files on our network share, we are unable to import them as sequences (the options at the bottom of the Open File dialog are all greyed out). We can open individual frames just fine, and we can open these sequences as Some users, but not all. All users have all permissions to the files and folders.
Is there some additional hidden file or special attribute that CS6 is keying on to enable/disable that open?
Ok.. we figured it out..
It only works if "Hide extensions for known file types" is checked... IF we can see file extensions, it doesn't work.
Seems this may be a bug in AfterEffects.
It only impacts files on a network share.. And doesn't impact Premiere.
