I just upgraded form after effects cs5 to cc and one thing i cant understand is why i cant directly import transparent gifs as i could in cs5. I heard that you have to make a png sequence from fireworks but i dont want to go through all of that. I would appreciate if someonecan tell me how to easily import transparent animated gifs into after effects cc as you could in sc5
You can't and that is that. This stuff used Quicktime components and simply too much has changed. You need to work with image sequences exported from Photoshop or whatever other program based on your GIF.
well that suckes i would rather just use cs5
