This is something I've done a million times, yet today it seems to be an issue. Trying to import ~4000 still pngs for a movie sequence (generated from Animate CC), I import to AE as footage and as a png sequence in the Import dialog box. AE goes through the motions (it takes even my relatively new MacBook Pro a few moments to select all the files, and to then attempt to import them), but in the end keeps throwing up an error that some file (a file it shouldn't need, and not a numbered file in the sequence like all the pngs I generated and then selected).
Here's the error dialog:
I've restarted all apps and the machine, regenerated the pngs from the source, tried importing to a fresh project in AE, and made sure all Adobe CC apps are fully updated. All with the same result, that error dialog.
Can anyone help me navigate around this weirdness?
