Learn about importing a map into After Effects.
- [Instructor] Getting your Illustrator artwork…into a motion project…is not as difficult as you might find.…And, as a shameless plug just before I start,…if you're not familiar with this world,…I created a course on…Video and Audio for Designers with Creative Cloud,…that's intended to go not too deep into video and audio,…but just enough so that you can start…making and achieving results.…And you might want to check that out.…
But the file that I've got here, as you can see,…is made of three layers.…There's a background just there,…and then there's the map on top,…and then there's this location icon down at the bottom here.…And I'm going to take that into Adobe After Effects.…So if I just switch out to After Effects here,…I've got no composition or project active at the moment,…but what I'm going to do is import that particular file.…So if I go to that and choose my motion map just here,…and click open,…I get to make a choice that actually was available to me…in the import screen, but I prefer to do it just here.…
