    classroom in a book lesson 3, error?

    PhoebeSparke

      I am working my way through Aftereffects classroom in a book (very new to this software so apologies if a very stupid question!)  Lesson 3 I am importing a .ai file - a dragonfly.  The compostion is 10 seconds long, as are all the other assets bar the dragonfly which is only 3 seconds long, thus will not run the length of the composition.  Has there been an error in setting this up (all assets are provided on the tutorial disc) or have I made a mistake in importing it?  I have tried altering the duration time of the dragonfly in aftereffects but this doesn't work.

       

      Any help gratefully appreciated

      I have just been playing around.  The tutorial tells me to import as Composition-Cropped Layers.  I mistakenly directly added the file from Adobe Bridge, which it has imported as soley a .ai file.  This has cured the problem and I have managed to complete the lesson, but I don't know why or what I have done - any explanations?
