Hi, this is pretty urgent,
I've imported illustrator layer files to After Effects as Composition - Retain Layer Sizes, yesterday they were fine, and today they appear black like this:
Yes, they are saved as RGB
Yes, I checked "Create PDF Compatible file"
I didn't edit or change their location or anything, I tried copying my artwork into a different AI and saving a new file, it still apears black, and I tried importing it as composition or footage too, still appears black
I also looked all over the internet and others were having this problem too though nothing worked for me
Why is this happening?! please help me I need to finish this project asap!
1. If you go to the projet panel menu (the 4 horizontal lines) and select 'show thumbnail transparency grid' - what do you see?
2. If you open those exact same files in Illustrator... How do they appear?
Thanks for your reply,
I actually solved it. I put one of the layers that appeared black in the timeline, and after a minute the artwork appeared. I guess it needed some time to load.
Today i has the same issue, i deleted all artworks in my original .ai file and i kept just one artwork. 🙂
Yes artwork can be an issue as AE will get only the one, good to share
