    How to convert AI image to extruded layer in AE

    JeffInPoulsbo2

      This is, I suspect, a problem with my image characteristics within AI.

      https://www.dropbox.com/s/6mg08q64wif80u8/Lion%20Body%20Dup.ai

      Lion.JPG

      Here is the image. I am puzzled by how it behaves when imported to AE from AI.There are 16 layers in AI but 52 when imported to AE and converted to a shape layer.

      The layer named lion body, which I suspect contains the extra 36 layers, is invisible in AE as soon as I "Create shapes from vector layer", although there seem to be many paths represented in it.

       

      Any ideas on how to get this image prepped for use within AE? Do I need to re-trace it within AE? Within AI? to create a closed image?
