I was working on a composition within After Effects and I was having no issues importing Illustrator files. Suddenly it started importing them as something weird? I'm sure I accidentally hit something to change the settings but I can't figure it out. Here's a screen shot of my imported files on the left. The top two on the were suppose to be like the rest of the Illustrator files below them.
Here's a link to my screen shot, notice how it's saying it's a Vector Art Sequence now and not just Vector Art. It's only putting it on about 10 frames when I drop it in the comp and it's pulling random info from my other files.
Any help would be appreciated.
You enabled the "Force Alpahbetical Order" option in the import dialog.
I didn't select that option when importing. When I first started my comp, it wouldn't even prompt me with any sort of options other than selecting the Illustrator file. Now it gives me the option for the force alphabetical order, import as footage, comp, etc. I've tried every combination of all of those and still no luck.
But you must somehow have enabled sequence import... This is not coming out of nowhere, so please double check again. Also simply consider naming your files differently from jut numbering thme sequentially to break out of this cycle. If it is truly a bug in the format handling (which I doubt), that would be pretty much the only option, anyway.
