I've been having inconsistent success/fails with using the auto-trace function in AECC14. It works sometimes, then sometimes not...
Take for instance 3 layers from illustrator- all with extremely similar shapes/values- the first 2 layers auto-traced no problem using luminance channel, tolerance 1, threshold 50, min area 1, corner roundness 5. Apply to new layer is checked.
The 3rd doesn't want to play nice... I try adjusting the values to force the trace, but I cant even see the preview, if I toggle invert on/off sometimes the preview shows, sometimes not?? seems glitchy? I've tried new comps, new projects. I cant even seem to force the issue, which is where I'm confused. It's random- or at least it seems.
Working on a laptop:
2.3 GHz Intel core i7
AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024 card
After Effects CC 2014
Also using Element 3D (with all updates)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
An unsupported operating system may only be part of the problem. Without seeing the actual illustrator file or at least a screenshot we have no clue what could be causing the problems. There is obviously something very different about that later.
