Is there a way (plugin, workaround) to open and edit After Effects files in Fusion?

You can try to export like premiere prj (from export menu) then. From premiere you can export it like xml.
May be you reach something of useful...
after effects is so so so different approach then Resolve / fusion, it’s very difficult to translate one to another.
After effects is layer related, resolve fusion are nodal related.

Apples and oranges.

There is no such plugin around.

Heck, its pretty much impossible to open a current AE project in a version of AE from last year.

Except for exporting individually rendered layers from AE and recomping back in Fusion, you're just going to have to start rebuilding.

Return to Fusion
