I am new to After Effects. I imported few images into a project before creating a composition and it worked fine. I am trying to import more files but AE is importing the whole folder and not able to choose any individual image. How to fix?

    Are the files sequentially numbered, e.g. file1.png, file2.png and so on? If so, AE is assuming they're an image sequence. There's a checkbox in the import window that you can uncheck to stop this happening. – stib Jun 23 '17 at 14:42
  • No they are not sequentially numbered. They have random names. Thanks – VeeJay Jun 27 '17 at 3:26

How are you doing the import? Press cmd+I to open the import dialogue, or double click in the empty space inside the project frame. Then select the files you need.

  • I have tried cmd+I, double click in the empty space inside the project frame and File > Import > File and also, File > Import > Multiple Files but all creating the same issue!! I have also tried closing AE completely and reopening it. – VeeJay Jun 23 '17 at 11:07
