As of the recent 17.0.2 update, I'm finding that I can't import Animate .fla files into AE.
The import dialog hangs for a while (whited-out in a non responsive state), then returns an error simply stating: "An error occured while importing this file. Please try again.". Frustratingly, this error often appears behind the import dialog, so you can easily miss it.
This seems to happen with all .fla files, so I don't think it's a specifically broken file.
Possibly related, is since the upgrade, any dynamically linked file in a project throws the error:
GPUSniffer.exe - Entry Point Not Found
This bug is raised in other threads: https://community.adobe.com/t5/character-animator/character-animator-exe-entry-point-not-found/td-p/...
Uninstalling/Reinstalling AE makes the problem go away, but only temporarily. Signing out of windows / restarting the computer makes it come back.
Steps taken to attempt a resolution:
- Restarting machine
- Attempts with different files
- Complete uninstall / reinstall of Animate and After Effects, including dumping preferences
- Update / reinstall NVIDIA and intel graphics drivers
Dell G3 3779 i7-8750H 32GB ram

You'll be pleased to hear that after completely uninstalling every adobe product on my machine, then running the Creative Cloud Cleaning Tool (following the step-by-step guide here: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-cleaner-tool-installation-problems.html#run-the-creativ... ), deleting the appData folders and performing a restart, did not solve the problem. After spending several hours re-downloading all the adobe suite, the problem remains.
(just realised it's signed me in with my other account here, but still, problem is still there).
After submitting a support ticket to Adobe, they responded with exactly the same steps I told them I've already taken before closing the ticket. So yeah, rolling back to past versions seems to be the only solution for anyone experiencing this problem.
Exact same problem. Each time I atempt to import a file from Adobe Animate "An error occured while importing this file. Please try again."
I have the solution.
Go back and install Animate version 20.0
Same problem here. WTF? It worked fine up until a few weeks ago now SWF's come in blank and FLA's don't import at all.
I have at least discovered that you can still import SWFs if you strip the file of all filters (blurs etc) on layers. Not quite an FLA import solution but something... for now.
Same problem here. I take it this problem is not solved.
I am running After Effects 17.7 and Animate 21.3 on a MacBook Pro with Mojave 10.14..
It is really annoying as I am on a work deadline.
First, it was the Media Encoder problem (now solved) and now this.
I have long gone back to importing SWFs again. But apparently now I also need to shut down AE, export the SWF and restart AE if the update with the same name should happen seamlessly. Otherwise I get missing footage alerts, regardless of reloading or replacing the footage or purging the cache! Not sure if that's because my server is a Mac and I'm working on Windows, but it's really annoying. Everything's improving NOT.
It's shameless on the part of Adobe. No solution forthcoming. More trouble than it's damned worth. Who can work like this? In the end my creativity is compromised by Adobe. Thing that were easily done last week are now immpossible. Who wants to restart their computer and re-install software all day? I've had Cloud for three weeks now and everything in it is a mess. Nothing works like it should. Has anyone tried to use the brushes in photoshop? Every single one is a stupid blob.
Still not working, even on 21.0.7.
When we'll have a fix for it?
Still not working. Fresh install.
