This workshop from author and animator Angie Taylor teaches how to use Illustrator's tools and features to prepare 2D files for animation in Adobe After Effects. Discover how to make the most of Illustrator's drawing tools and Autotrace feature, and to how use Live Paint and Kuler to recolor artwork. Plus, get a ton of tips and tricks for giving artwork a hand-drawn look and find out how to set up layers, aspect ratios, and transparency options for importing into After Effects. The lessons are focused and solution-oriented, and all the project files are included.
So here we have export art boards.ai, which you can open from the saving exporting folder. Here's my little dog that we had to look at earlier and you'll see all the frames on different art boards. If I wanted to output this for say, a storyboard I can go to file Save As and I can choose to output as a PDF. Which is fantastic, I can output a selection of frames or all of the frames as a PDF and send them to my client for approval before moving ahead. Or my other options for outputting artboards include exporting. So if I go to file Export and I can choose all these different file formats. And you'll notice that I have flash in there.
And if I choose flash, I can choose to output the art boards as swift files. And there are also various other options in there. We've got Photoshop, we can put the art boards out as separate layers. So lots of options for exporting multiple art boards using the Save and the Export functions.
