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!

Thanks for posting. I am able to see this issue when deleting a folder, but it doesn't prevent import. Is that the same situation as you are seeing?
