Hi. Can someone help me with this problem?

When i import into AE an AI graphics with a size bigger than artborad, it appear cropped.

In After Effects this file I put with > Import As > Composition - Retain Layer Sizes

I was treating the same graphic in Photoshop and it appears completely.

Importing the same way, Import As > Composition - Retain Layer Sizes

Is there a way to get the same thing importing from AI?

Thanks in advance.

By any chance, does your Illustrator document only have one layer? 


I can see you're using the Film & Video preset, which actually has a second (huge) artboard, specifically to allow things to exist outside the main (visible) artboard. I'm not sure if this behavior has somehow changed recently, but it appears that if you only have a single layer in your Ai document, there may not be a way to get AE to recognize that second artboard. 

Honestly, I've actually done demos about best practices here, but I'm not sure I've ever tried this with only a single layer, so I can't say whether this is new behavior or has always been there. It definitely feels like it's not expected behavior, so I'm going to report it as such. 

TL;DR - try creating a second layer in your Ai document, or just expand the artboard to the size of your art.

I tried both ways to add an artboard but the cut image still appears. I think I will have to pass everything to PS. Thanks for the reply.
