I have an illustrator file with vector paths made up of all strokes. When imported into AE and converted to shape layers, all the strokes turn into filled shapes. I want them to stay as strokes so I can utilize Trim paths. Any Idea about this?
I've had success with
import composition > layer size
Double click comp
Highlight all > Create > Create Shapes from vector layer
Delete the .Ai layers
The overlord plugin would help greatly with this workflow:
It lets you move vectors back and forth between Illustrator and After Effects.
