could not import illustrator file

When I am trying to import an Illustrator file, I keep getting this error:

File: ‘C:\Users\USER\Pictures\Mark.ai’ could not be imported.

Can someone assist me please?

I resolved it. Apparently, Illustrator CC had issues. I downgraded to CS5 and I’m good to go.

For the best results you need to save in compatibility mode with Illustrator 10 because some of the newer Illustrator features have no analog in Animate.
