If i create shapes in Illustraitor and Export it to After Effects i cant find Options to animate the Points of the Shape. When I create the shapes directly in After Effects I have the option to animate the Points of the Layer.
Why have I learned in school and many tutorials to Import Illustraitor Layers to AE? What is the benefit? There is also a Tool called "Adobe Animate" to make Animations. Is it recommended for a 2min. Animationfilm? There is also a pupet tool in AE. is it better to use this tool instead of rotate and place the layers step by step....
In the end I see many many options to Animate. I am looking for a common way to animate.
Im also looking for a Job after school and want to learn and get the right qualifications for creating animated media.
Import and export
User interface or workspaces
There is no "common way" to animate everything. That very much is the point. You use the right tool for each workflow. Working with pixel images has other requirements than working with shape layers or other vector data, doing explainer videos is different from VFX and so on. Anyway, and no offense, since clearly you haven't even read the online help on some basics like converting AI artwork to shape layers I feel there is no point to discuss this further. So for what it's worth, start at the beginning:
