So I am new to Illustrator, but I wanted to use it to make assets to use in order to learn After Effects.
I made a drawing in sections in order to import them to AE. I grouped the items that needed to be grouped and let free the items that I would want to animate. I saved the file as a transparent background. When I imported it into AE, the pack ground was transparent, but the items were fixed and cannot be moved or adjusted independently. How do I separate the items in either AI or AE so that I can animate the independent parts?
