I have imported an Adobe Illustrator file into AE CC and converted it into outlines to have control over each element seperately . But when i convert to outlines inside of AE , the previous grouping arrangement of the objects goes away and each element is seperate , and i need to group certain objects together to apply effects to them together like for example grouping the letters of a word . How can i do that inside of AE ? How can i group objects like i group them in illustrator ? Thanks
I don't understand why, but most Illustrator folks seem to have complete ignorance of the Create New Layer button when working with their documents in AE.
In Illustrator, create a new layer.... not a group, not a path, but a LAYER. Put everything you want together into that layer. Then import into AE.
Wow ! Thanks a million that worked ! Well most of us illustrator people Don't use layers that often , we use the commands bring/send to front/back ... But thanks alot Dave !
