    Creating shapes from Vector layers (.ai files)

    mcsh1pat

      I am trying to make extrusions to an image.  I am new to Illustrator and have read that .ai files are the only ones that you can extrude in AE.  However when I bring in an .ai file and select create shape from vector layer, a grey square covers the shape.  I am assuming that it is a transparancy issue and it is just filling in the size of the .ai project.  I could be wrong though.  How can I fix this?
