I am bringing in my illustrator files to after effects but whenever I "create shapes from vector layers" certain colours go grey? Other colours don't. It seems that any colour that wasn't from the default illustrator colour palette goes grey. my paths are closed there is no extra art-board. I've done this a million times but have never had this problem. Please help.
As you can see when I outline the gun it stays the same because it is made with colours from the default colour palette but when the money is outlined it goes grey when it should go green.
What version of Illustrator?
What version of AE?
(Exact version numbers down to the last decimal, please.)
You have strokes and dynamic Pathfinders or groups in your artwork. Inevitably there is no way to convert it to a simple path. You need to work on the stuff in AI.
