<div>I have a dot pattern background in an illustrator file that looks lovely and normal in AI, but looks like the attached photo in AE. I do a lot of work with dot pattern fill AI files in AE, but I’ve never had this happen before.</div><div>
This was a file provided by a designer, and I have several other dot pattern swatches, so I just changed to a different one after 15ish minutes of trial and failure (it isn’t perfectly identical, so fingers crossed they don’t notice), but nothing I did with this pattern swatch could fix the issue. I’m not sure if it’s an Illustrator setting or an After Effects problem, I imported my AI files as layer-sized comps, but that’s how I always import AI files.
Any thoughts on why and how to prevent in the future? Thanks!
