I can't create shape layer. There is not even an option like this in my AE 7.0 - I've downloded 30 days trial version to see wha's new. When i am clicking right button the list of options appears - I can create new text, solid, adjustment layer etc. but there is nothing like shape! Can you guys help me to find it? Is it hide somewhere or it is just not possible to create shape layer in trial version?
Shape layers were introduced in CS3. You are using a version from the dark ages...
Hold on.. Maybe I made a mistake in number.. but this version, as far as I know, is the latest posibble to have ?
If you're using a newer version of AE in trial mode, you should still be able to create shape layers. The trial mode is not limited at all.
