Camtasia 9 - Extending a frame is deleting a layer in an MP4

I have been using Camtasia for years and did not think this was possible. I produce an MP4 in Adobe After Effects and imported it into Camtasia. I wanted to extend the end of the video to add additional audio. However, (this is so strange) when I clip the video and extend it, I only see the layer below (from After Effects) my top layer disappears. shouldn't the MP4 contain a smashed version of my production? Apparently, the MP4 hangs on to the Adobe layers, but how? What is going on? Does anyone have experience with this?

I have no experience with After Effects MP4s; but a workaround might be to use a saved frame to do the clip extension
