    Not able to create outlines from AI layers

    nclmar

      Hi,

       

      It’s been a little time since I last opened AE, and now I’m running into an error that prevents me for working on anything. I’m importing AI files as comps, with each object in layer. Usually, I then « create layers from vector layers » so I can use the objects created on AI as AE shapes.

       

      Except this message appears instead:

      aftereffets_ai.png

      After Effects error: Could not create outlines. Unsupported file type.
      ( 26 :: 0 )

      I don’t know what to do.

      I’m using the latest AE and AI from the Creative Cloud. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling AE, and saving my AI in older CS6 versions. It’s not working better.

       

      Does someone know how to fix this?

      Thanks
