Time Remapping doesn't seem to function properly when used with EXR sequences
Enable Time Remapping doesn't seem to function properly when used with EXR sequences. I rendered a multi-pass EXR sequence from C4D and split it up using ProEXR from fnord. However, in order to save time, I only rendered the frames that had animation on them, figuring I could time remap it in AE to add handles to the beginning and end. Usually, the workflow is to move one frame back set a new key, delete the final time remap key and extend the ending layer. This doesn't work, everything afterwards just shows up black. As a workaround I've had to import stills and extend them to make the ending longer, which is a pain because it's a multi-pass render and there's several sequences. The reason why I believe this is an EXR related bug is because it seems to work fine with other sequences such as PNG and JPG. EXR is the industry standard compositing format, and AE is supposed to be an industry standard compositor. That said, it seems like it needs better EXR support.

Which version of AE are you using Benjamin? I'll see if I can repro this issue in 17.1.3, but if you're on an older version know that we have made significant improvements to our EXR handling in recent releases.
