I am trying to draw shapes, circle and squares in a new composition in After Effects. On my menu it has a square / rectangle and a little point in lower right corner that typically displays all available shapes. But no matter what I try, the only shape I get is the rectangle. This is probably a setting somewhere, but I can't find it
Okay so the next person does not have to go thru the painful tutorial's I had to go thru to find out how to activate the tools in rectangle, circle ellipse etc. The correct answer is
Click on the tool button and it becomes activated,
Then hit the "Q" key and continue to select it as you scroll thru the choices.
When you come to the tool you want, begin drawing
I have no idea why they changed the way the palette is displayed, but this is how it works now in CC
