    I need help with Importing my Illustrator file into After Effects, I'm having problems

    ,k,

      Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum. I am having a hard time importing this Illustrator file into After Effects. Here's how it is in the Illustrator file

      As you can see, I made all the layers separate so then when I import it I can work on each and every one.  (I want them to bloom from the center)

       

      but when I import to After Effects (I ask to import the composition and retain the layers), the size looks completely different:

      Then when I drag down the layers folder to the Comp Panel, the layer order starts getting really messed up. Here is what I am talking about

      What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it? Also how can I figure out how to let the petals boom? I'm thinking of scaling the center larger first and then scaling the petals from there. but first I have to figure out how to get the size distortion and the layer orders right. Thanks.
