Curious if anyone else is having this (major) issue or has a solution. I use fresco to create animations, which I then import as psd files into after effects.

I'm guessing you're exporting as mp4. Have you tried exporting as gif or PNG sequence? Do either of these options allow you to then import and use in Ps and Ae.

I must have read over that bit too fast and just looked for alternative ways you could bring it into AE. Glad you got a workaround from customer support.
