End what exactly? You need to make an effort to actualyl explain your issue, not just state that something doesn't work as you expect. This is of no use to anyone. Provide at least a screenshot.

Please be polite. You have no idea how old the person is or what their command of the language is. I understood completely.

Hi Alex25900718g4hy,

 

Welcome to the community.

Are you trying to edit the Illustrator text in After Effects? If so, that's not supported. Sorry about that. You can edit the text created in Photoshop in After Effects though.

Let us know if it's not the answer to your question.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

If you properly set up your Illustrator file for video production, you can save a version as a Photoshop file, import both the Photoshop File and the Illustrator file as Compositions, retaining layer size, and enable Editable Text in the Photoshop import.  You just have to check the appropriate boxes in Illustrator when you Export as a PSD.

Lots of AE users who frequent the AI-to-AE workflow have invested in the AE script, Overlord. It's a really useful tool and also greatly speeds up workflows - https://www.battleaxe.co/overlord

As nishu said, you can't convert your AI text to AE editable text, the only solution is to get it to copy and paste, or use overload script as Roland said

I'm here actually looking for the link to feature request. The fact that add-ons like "Overlord" exist shows this is a credable feature for future releases.

If you have XD, open the AI file in XD, select all, then go to File/Export/After Effects.

 

A new composition will be created with every Path a shape layer, every group a nested composition with shape layers, and text that can be converted to editable text. It's a hidden secret. I just started using it. Someday, maybe the feature will be in AE.
