 Im trying to do some compositing but some of the frames in Maya had to be done in negative frames, so when I try to import the tiff images into After Effects it only recognizes those that came after frame 0. anyone have any idea why this is or how I can have it recognize negative frames.

You can't and that is that. You have to use some batch renaming to shift the numbers into all positive ranges. As an 3D artist myself I always found it handy to keep such tools around...

Thanks, and thought it may sound off topic, would there be some way to do that in playblast?

Bridge, Lightroom, Automatr (Mac), and about a dozen other free apps will batch rename files. You can even do it with a Batch action in Photoshop.
