When coverting a vector or Illustrator file (such as a logo) into a shape layer any gradient fill is lost. Is there no way to ensure the gradient fill is converted across or is this a matter for a future release of After Effects?
That's a limitation of the current feature.
If you want a different behavior, you can submit a feature request here: http://www.adobe.com/go/wish
Massive limitation - bit of a shame.
I'll submit a feature request...
