Can someone tell me, why i can't export my fla file after an update. I used to work with both animate and after effect for my animation production. But almost 2 months this pipeline Animate to after effect doesn't work anymore even i did a thousand updates. Did I make a mistake in the export? or is the problem with adobe itself?

I have both the latest versions and it errors out for me too. I am using a mac. I don't even see a way to export a fla from after effects. I have never done this. So I am interested in how this works.

That's how I understand it now, thank you.
Oh, and 2 days after I posted my "FLA doens't load in After",  an update in Animate madeit possible again…

you saved your fla and tried to import into after effects?

 

if so, post your question in the after effects forum.

It's been fixed in v.23.0.0.

Make sure both Animate and After Effects are updated.

Ah looks like it broke again: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-bugs/unable-to-import-fla-files-into-ae/idi-p/13575254

 

Well a workaround is to publish your layers in SWF archive format from Animate.

Go to the properties panel (doc tab) > Publish Settings > More Settings > check the SWF Archive option and hit Publish.

Each layer on the main timeline will be converted into separate SWF files which you can then import into After Effects.

Same here, 23.3.1 doesn't load FLA. Thank you @Mario_CR for the Archive workaround.

Btw, new question : in the archive export, i don't see sequences, is it expected or have I missed something ?

It's not a sequence, it's a series of layered SWFs. Each SWF corresponds to a layer in your Animate file. Import them all at once into After Effects.

This method is essentially the manual version of the import FLA option.
