Importer Effect

Importer Effect provides the ability to import certain unsupported file formats. Unsupported formats include SVG, PPM, PGM, PBM, XBM, XPM and HTML. JPEG, GIF, PNG and BMP support is included in order to support quick operations on these files.

Importer is offered for free, without any need for registration.

You can download the Win or Mac version.

This effect works with 8-bpc, 16-bpc, and 32-bpc color. The optimal usage will require 32-bpc and full resolution. In 32-bpc color, After Effects does not clip the video and allows the user to view any out-of-range data.
