    How to import the layers of a completed flash animation into after effects

    MrMachoGoodie

      Im new to after effects, so sorry if this question is so basic.

       

      I remember back when I took a video class that my teacher said that the wonder of adobe is that you can save a file in one adobe program, and then open it in another adobe program with all of its layers intact.

       

      Now I want to try that and import my completed flash animation into after effects with all of its layers still there so that I can learn how to do composting and to practice with the 3d camera. But when I tired saving the animation as a swf file and importing it to after effects, it seemed like it was all one layer. Im still not familiar with all the buttons on after effects so I dont know if I missed something or I did it wrong. Do I have to save it as a different file type, or change the settings or is there something else?
