Ability to enter custom composition name on sequence import + override default frames sequence fps

Pretty straightforward here.

A lot of people render 3d passes and import these into afx for comp or motion work. Usually my passes have a ton of info in them, like the project file name, date etc.  I do not need this info in the comp name that is created on the import of these passes.  Therefore I suggest that we can have the ability to input a custom comp name on impor, rather than importing, having to find the comp and then rename it.

Also, sometimes, being from the UK i work in 25fps, sometimes i work in 30fps.  It would be also great to be able to override the default sequence import fps on the fly when you import.

Lastly, the importer for sequences is still pretty dumb. Meaning that, if somebody renders a bunch of render passes that are not in a multipass file, it doesn't know to import them.  The current workflow for exr with multipass is great, render all your passes into one file, and AFX splits them up and creates a comp, brilliant.

If for whatever reason (some people do it for performance, sometimes it could be because you need a different colour interpretation for a pass (i.e most of your passes are fine being aces, but you might have a uv pass or depth pass that should be preserved)), you render out seperate passes. Importing them all is a pain!  You should be able to say to AFX, hey look at this folder, look at the file name and import all the passes, i.e. myRender_beauty.exr, myRender_normals.exr etc etc, as a combined import, and place them in a single comp im the correct order with blending modes applied.

Strong plus one for the frame rates on import - I often have the exact same issue.

I also really like the current multipass importer, that's super-handy. Love the ideas on the seperate pass imports, strong support there too.
