Hi, I am working on creating an animation that has various parts. This is my first time using after affects. I have already made artboards or various scenes from the animation in illustrator. Now I am trying to import these files into Ae for animation.
1. Which is the best way to import files? Should I make a new Ai file for each artboard or should I import the file that contains all the artboards?
2. I tried both versions, but when I open them in Ae the file that contains all artboards only show one of the artboards that I can edit, and when I open individual file, I see the individual file, but for some reasons I cannot select the elements.
Can anyone guide me towards an animation that is made using multiple Ai artboards?
Thanks in advance
Error or problem
Import and export
Artboards are just virtual drawing regions that AE can't interpret. As already pointed out, you should splice out your artboards to individual files. That also has the added benefit of not potentialyl messing up so much if you need to go back and change something.
