    Pixel perfect transformable vector shapes that keep their borders while scaling..?

    Intergalactics

      What is the best approach to creating a vector rectangle that could have a gradient fill and a solid border of, say, 3 pixels and this shape could be animated (seperately for W and H) while no anti-aliasing or warping of the border would occur?

       

      Is it best to start with a AI shape or a native AE shape?

       

      I have noticed that both AE and AI can have faded borders, there are semi transparent pixels on the edge of the border so it is not a clean 3 pixel solid. I have also noticed that its difficult to create an extact width and height even while taking the border into account.

       

      I can't calculate it to the pixel like I would in CSS. So is there any working method to create extact pixels for AE?

       

      Thanks
