Problem Moving a Path into After Effects

May 15, 2012 2:22 PM

I created a path in Illustrator CS5.  When I try to copy the path only, and paste it into After Effects CS5 on a new solid layer, I only get the bounding box, not the path.  Please give me some suggestions on what I am doing wrong.

    Check, whether you have enebaled the AICB option in Illustrator's prefs.

    Perhaps try pasting into a shape path. It can be tricky the first time, make sure you twirl down all the way to the path level of the shape layer, click to highlight the path attribute, and Ctrl+V the illustrator path. If it takes, you can continue using the shape layer, or try to re-copy/paste that path back onto your solid to go back to a traditiona AE mask.
