    Why is "set first vertex" grayed out?

    Tony B55 Level 1

      I'm new to After Effects and am rather boggled by its complexity. I have searched this question and didn't find it in the forum.

       

      I created a path in Illustrator and pasted it into the position property of a shape object. The path works just as I wanted it to as a motion path. However, the default first vertex was not where I wanted it, so I selected the one I wanted to set as the first vertex, but the switch to do so was grayed out. I did have only one vertex selected.

       

      Does anyone have a solution or an explanation?

       

      I'm using a Macbook Pro with a dual core chip and 8GB of RAM, AE CS5, OS X 10.6.8.

       

      Thanks
