Hello,
 
I have exported an EXR sequence out of ToonBoom Harmony but am unable to access the various layers in AE. Create ProEXR layer comps is no longer an option under File, and the extractor effect doesnt work either. I'm really not sure what to do so I hope someone here can help me out. Thanks!

This feature is now built into AE. The standard way to get to it is through the Import File dialog. You choose your EXR and then say you want to Import As: Composition.

 

But you can also bring back Create ProEXR Layer Comps in the File menu item by running this script to change your preferences (also attached):

 

if(app.preferences.havePref("OpenEXR", "File Menu Item") && app.preferences.getPrefAsLong("OpenEXR", "File Menu Item"))
{
	alert("Create ProEXR Layer Comps should already be in the File menu. Maybe restart AE?");
}
else
{
	app.preferences.savePrefAsLong("OpenEXR", "File Menu Item", 1);

	alert("Restart AE and Create ProEXR Layer Comps should be in the File menu.");
}
