Hey guys, new to After Effects and Ai.....so basically I imported an Ai file into illustrator and animated it....it's just the letter (H). I want the H to turn from green to blue, I opened the change color effects just fine and selected it and made the key frames on the correct layer but it just isn't changing, even as a working preview the colors just don't change but all the other animation and effects work. Is it because it doesn't have a fill? or do I have to make it a shape?
I'd make a second separate letter in Illustrator in the color you want -- on a different LAYER... why is it that illustrator people so often ignore layers, anyway?... import the new illustrator document as a comp into AE, then match up the positions and animate the opacity of the layer with the second colored letter.
Alternatively, animate the Hue/Saturation effect.
