Dat files are the wrong format to import into after effects.

I wrote a mac app that turns dat files into time remapping data for after effects a few years ago. its called PapaAE
you can find it on my github

it need the rubycocoa framework so if you are running osx10.10 or 10.11 you will have to install rubycocoa to get it to run

You wouldn't be able to tell me which file actually does the mapping would you.
I may be able to incorporate it in the Papagayo release I'm working on .
Or point me to a document on what remapping data is.
