Hi!!

When I import my ai file, I would like to import a specific layer rather than the whole layers. I know that before importing, import to a stage setting windows pop up. However, the layer pictures are very small and confusing which it hard to select a specific layer. Is there any easy way to deal with it, or should I keep importing the all layers to the stage and delete the ones I don't need?

 

the confusing window:

i think it would be best to create a new movieclip and import to that stage.  you can then maintain those layers in the movieclip but easily add that movieclip to any main timeline frame/layer you wish.

When I do that the assets I import to the stage still distribute in the timeline separately.

 

Lastly, I didn't really get what did you mean by creating a new movie clip?

 

Is there any video or article that explains that? I know that t is very simple but I cannot figure this out.

 

Many thanks,

Simple copy-pasting from Ai to Animate works as well.
