So CC has the integration of ProEXR from Fnord apparently now - new OpenEXR and DPX importers for After Effects CC (12.0): better performance and additional functionality | After Eff…
Cool... Thing is that in the past using ProEXR to import a EXR sequence was two clicks and super easy. Just go to "file" and select the option shown below -
This option is not included with CC though? I'm running a trial version right now and will be buying soon, but really would like this option so I don't need to go over and extract each individual layer out of an EXR manually... So two questions-
1. Am I completely missing something here?
2. Will ProEXR plugin bought from the fNord site function in CC like it used to in CS6 and 5.5? Cause if so I'll spend the extra 70 and buy it just to get this option back.
Thanks everybody for any responses.
If you click the link in the document you linked to, you'll see this page which talks about third-party plugins that are included with AE. It lists fnord ProEXR as included with AE and links to a page with more information: After Effects Help | 3D Channel effects That page specifically mentions the Comp creator plugin that makes layers as separate from the free version that ships with AE.
But then, so does the picture you linked. The pic you linked specifically states that there is a part that "does not ship with After Effects...responsible for...building comps from a layered EXR file."
While AE utilizes fnord's plugin to allow importing EXR files, it would appear that you need to buy the plugin for further functionality to do what you're asking.
The Comp Creator plug-in has always been a separate (free) download. It has never been included with After Effects.
