Hello community !

I am looking for a way to export individually each layer in Illustrator as PNG, JPG or any other format.

 

I've seen this video :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9MX2moFX4A

Featuring this script :
http://www.ericson.net/content/2011/06/export-illustrator-layers-andor-artboards-as-pngs-and-pdfs/?f...

 

But the script doesn't seem to work properly on my Illustrator CC 2020 version.

 

I know the "export asset" functions, as well as "save for screens" and "save for webs". But if you had a quick way to just tell Illustrator "Hey, take every individual layer existing, and export them into separate PNG files please".

It would be great for my workflow.
Thanks !

Yes, tried this too. The script seem to be not updated for latest version of CCs

Works for me, what may not be obvious at first, even if you don't want to export artboards, you have to select an artboard (to tell where the layers are).
