But wait, there’s more!?!

That’s right, just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any more information about bringing a file from Illustrator into After Effects; we bring you part two.

This time we’ll be going though a more complicated Illustrator file than in lesson one and how we can set it up in Illustrator to be animation ready. Along the way we’ll go over some neat little tips and tricks that might make your life easier some day.

Warning: This is not you’re average vector file, it’s full of little traps and things that you didn’t know would break when need to convert to an After Effects shape layer. We’ll tackle blend modes, dashed lines, raster effects, and so much more.
