    AI layer files appear black in AE... Does anyone know how to change that?


      Hey Everyone,


      So I'm creating an animation in AE, but first I wanted to create a custom logo in Illustrator. It's a simple word and rectangular box outline. I had separated the text as individual shapes so that I could manipulate each one manually in AE. Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 3.49.20 PM.png

      Having separated each shape into its own layer I saved the file. I only used ONE artboard. The background is obviously not black, and it's in RGB colorspace not CMYK. Going into AE I import the file with the following setup:

      All layers import. The problem is that they are all black when I open the composition.

      If anyone can please answer this question it would be greatly appreciated as I haven't found the correct answer after searching the forums for the last couple hours.
