If I make in Illustrator an Ai-file and import this file in After Effects and select 'Create Shapes from Vector' I get on each path the artboards of the Ai. This is very very very annoying.
Please help me out!

How are you importing the file? As a comp?
One, illustrator files designed for use after effects should only have one art board.
Two, each closed path on an illustrator player will become a closed path on a shape layer when you convert the vectors to shapes.
Have you done this before? If the answer is yes and things behaved as you expected, then figure out what is different this time.
@ Dave - It doesn't make any difference how I import the Ai-file (comp, footage, comp layer size or comp
I use this all the time... but I found three solutions to the problem so far:
- the Ai-file must be CC2014
- All opacity must be 100%
- All Blend Modes must be set to 'Normal'
