I've run across an issue in After Effects CS6 where when I try and trace an Illustrator layer, there is no preview shown on the layer that I am tracing. Could I have somewhow disabledd the option to show the preview, or it it a bug?
It's also worth noting that after playing with the settings, the preview will flicker on and off for a second before disappearing again.
My specs are as follows:
OS: Mac OS X 10.7.5
Processor: 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3
RAM: 8GB 1067 MHz DDR3
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4670 256 MB
AE Version: 22.214.171.124
Any help would be appriciated.
Why are you tracing an Illustrator layer? You can get a much more accurate mask of the shape by copying the path in Illustrator and pasting it into After Effects!
