I'll second Mylenium's recommendation of Automatic Duck software. It's even recommended in the
"Supported import formats" section of After Effects CS3 Help:
"The Automatic Duck Pro Import AE tool extends your ability to import assets in various formats, including those used by popular non-linear editing systems. For more information, see the Automatic Duck website: www.adobe.com/go/learn_ae_automaticduckpiae."
