Object ID From Maya to Adobe After Effects - problem

Hello, guys.

I'll go straight to the point. So I am rendering a scene with VRay in Maya. I've set up two passes to be rendered besides the RGB one. These passes are Material ID and Object ID. Before the Batch Render I've tested in the Frame Buffer how these passes are coming out. Both of them render as they should (The Material ID shows all of the shaders in the scene correctly, and the Object ID renders just one object in the scene as it is the only one with an assigned ID for this pass (Obj ID 1). Great, but the problem is that when our compositing guy imported the renders in After Effects, the Material ID shows up, but the Object ID is missing. We tried importing the renders in Nuke - again no Object ID. The render files extensions are .Exr images.

So has anyone had a similar problem? I know I'm setting the Passes correctly, because in the VRay Frame Buffer they show up. The Problem comes whenever I Batch Render the scene. Maybe it's a problem with the .exr's ? Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. (:
