You could likely try one of the many import/ export/ project management scripts on AEScripts.com.

Hi sigalite86633480,

 

Sorry for your issue.

It seems to be working fine for me. Is it happening with a particular project? Would you mind testing it with a new project? Also, what's the exact version of After Effects you're using: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/faq-how-to-reset-trash-preferences-in-after...

Let us know.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

The functions appear to be currently somehow busted on Mac at least from what I read here on the forum, hence I was referring to the scripts.
