    Illustrator files won't import as a composition.

      Hi.

       

      I'm trying to import some Adobe Illustrator files into After Effects so that I can animate them. As far as I understand, I need to import them as a composition so that the layers will remain separate from each other.

       

      However whenever I try to do this, I go through the whole process- select the file, select composition, click OK,  it does nothing. The file does not appear anywhere in my project, it's as if I haven't done anything.

       

      Any idea why it might be doing this? I'm only using the 30 day trial of After Effects if that makes any difference.

       

      Thanks in advance.
