Fix XML import on Catalina
XML import is currently broken on AE, with the following error message:
After Effects: AEGP Plugin Pro Import:
"Fatal internal AAF/OMF/XML error.
Please contact customer support." (0:1134) ( 5027 :: 12 )
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

I found that Adobe have now completely removed the plugin that handles XML import from the latest Mac OS After Effects - https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/after-effects/kb/pro-import-issue-catalina.html
I too found success in using Premiere to open the XMLs but I handle many files each day so adding another step slows down my workflow quite a bit. Hopefully there is work being done to reinstate this feature.

Same here. I've spent a lot of time w/ Customer Care since last fall about this. It seems to be a Catalina permissions issue - they sent me this: https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/issues/6474
I regularly do rough edits in Final Cut X and export xml to After Effects. The current workaround is to import the xml into Premiere and create a dynamic link that opens it in After Effects. And after all that it's still not a seamless conversion. BTW, is it just my iMac Pro, or does it take over six minutes to launch Premiere everywhere?
PLEASE HELP WITH THIS!
