Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Illustrator and vectors, part of After Effects CC 2015 New Features.
- Now let's work with vector layers in Adobe Illustrator.…You might remember a couple movies ago,…I downloaded these two graphics…from the Adobe CC Marketplace.…You notice when I hover my cursor…over them, it says that the file type is SVG,…which is a standardized vector graphic.…Unfortunately, After Effects does not…yet support the SVG format.…So what's going to happen when I…import this into my After Effects project?…Well, a good thing, and a bad thing.…For example, if I drag this stop sign…into my project panel it will indeed…import, but it got converted to a ping file.…
That's because even though SVG is the standard…on the marketplace for vector graphics,…that format does have a backup where a ping…or PSD is saved that is a copy of that particular image.…That's cool.…On the other hand, it's no longer vectors,…it's pixels, it's a ping file.…It's described as 1042 x 1042.…And I dragged it into my After Effects composition,…you'll notice that I do not get…a continuous rasterization button,…and I would not be able to convert this…
