I am working on an animation in after effects from an AI file. I have everything separated on layers and it is all neat and organized. Before this animation, I did two others that included using the stroke effect to reveal certain elements within the animation. When applying this effect, then sizing up the elements and using the continuous rasterization, I have had no issues. However, in this third animation, when I size up the animation and add the continuous rasterization, the element with the stroke effect looses its thickness. Instead of being a 5.5 stroke like I animated it with, it become a like .5 stroke. When I deselect the continuous rasterization, the stroke becomes the right size, but is all blurry (since it isn't rasterizing and all). I can't for the life of me figure out how to fix this problem... does anybody know a solution?? You'd be a great help! Thanks!
This is normal behavior. The solution is to pre-compose the scaled layer and then apply stroke. Another option is to apply stroke to a solid placed above the scaled layer and use that as a track matte.
The best option would be to create the illustrator file the right size originally so you don't have to scale it up so far in the comp.
Thanks! And year, normally would, but these were sent to me! Trick worked, thanks again!
