I just updated to AE CC 2015.3, and the obj models I had imported in the previous version to use with Element 3D have been marked as missing files. When I try to replace the footage, it acts as though the original obj files can't be imported (they're all greyed out). Has that changed in 2015.3? Thanks for any help!

Huh? I don't follow. Element 3D doesn't import the meshes via the project pane. It uses its own library. Other than that only Plexus and Trapcode Form have OBJ importers that work as you describe to my knowledge, so you need to update those.
Woops, you're totally right. Thanks!
