  • Possible to import AI layers and path (not an AICB question)

    I would like to be able to import a layer with it’s path intact to be able to do flash like illustrations with in AE. Right now I can import the AI file as a comp and then copy the paths over from each layer and paste them into the appropriate layer in AE. If I need to change the mask as I am animating and make it smaller it works well but if I need to expand the mask then there is not enough layer and I have a problem. I know that I can simply paste the mask into a new layer in AE but then I have to duplicate the coloring or gradients etc. that I setup in Illustrator.

    Can’t you just scale up the layer from the imported Illustrator comp? If you want it to be sharp, you can click the “continuous rasterization” switch.

    Unless I’ve misunderstood you.
