          AE does not support AI's object model and will not allow you access to individual paths or groups. All entities must be correctly on separate "layers" (top level without further nesting) and the file be imported as a composition. This will however also not give access to the paths themselves, it will just provide the layer content in its rasterized form. If you want to animate paths and so on, use copy&paste via the clipboard to insert stuff from AI as masks or shape layers and animate those.
