is there a particular reason for that removal? other than a possible feud between Adobe and other companies?
having my Avid timeline (or any other NLE timeline) converted to AE layers made things very easy for me. Adobe Dynamic Link doesn't adress the issue at all, since it only lays out a single layer, no possibility to adjust transitions, overimpose different shots, etc.

The AAF importer was developed by a company other than Adobe. We didn't find that enough people were using this in After Effects to warrant the continued licensing and development work (which would have been significant during the port to a 64-bit application).
If this is an important feature for you, we encourage you to submit a feature request.
Premiere Pro still has AAF import functionality. People often use Premiere Pro as an intermediary when importing files from various sources into After Effects.
Sorry, didn't know it was a 3rd party plugin. Currently I use AE CS4 to port my Avid timeline to AE CS5, I was hoping I could skip the CS4 step.
Using Adobe Premiere w/ Dynamic Link is not an option, as alot of times I need to adjunst the effects on every shot, so I need the actual edit list in the AE timeline, not just the entire movie as a single source.
I'll submit a feature request, thank you for the link!
