I find it extremely frustrating that in Adobe Animate there doesn't seem to be a way to export all layers to movie clips for compositing in After Effects. I could do it manually-- but for a large project it's going to be insanely time consuming.
Is there no hidden way to expedite this process, or no way to do a "Dynamic Link" between the file and AE?
I'd hate to have to drop it and move to another platform to do the animation.
In Publish Settings there is an item "SWF Archive". It publishes a zip file. In the zip file is one SWF per layer from the timeline, ready for taking into AE as tracks.
I think this is how we'll do it. You've saved me and my team a lot of time. A bit clunky: position the correct scene on top, publish a zip, unzip, import, repeat... But it'll do I suppose!
Thank you, Colin!!!
Glad it's useful!
Thank you! I had the same problem, An2020 .fla is not compatible with AE2020. This was working before. This work around works for me but I hope Adobe comes up with some kind of bugfix because as Kyle_Delso says, it is clunky. Have a nice day, sir.
