I'm trying to import a logo which has been created in illustrator into After effects so that I can create shapes from the vector to animate.

 

However, which ever way I import the .ai file the dimensions change on my composition, it becomes very tall! the logo .ai file and the after effect compositions settings are the same size. On import I am selecting 'composition - retain layer sizes'..... please advise?

 

Thanks

Import is as 'composition' only. Maybe there is a leftover in the AI far outside of the artbord.

No that still didnt work.... however I just created a square in illustrator and imported that (so that I could use screen grabs without showing my clients logo).. it worked fine, went to drag the logo.ai file which was already in my project and it's now working.... weird! I have no idea what's gone on but it's not fine! ha thanks.

Solution.

I was having the same issue. When you are creating a new illustrator document try setting the document Raster Effects at 72 ppi.

 

A previous document had the raster effects set to 300 ppi and it was all sorts of wrong when I brought it in. I haven't tried verifying this with a second attempt  😛   good luck.
