    after effects and illustrator path issues


      Hello all,


      I am trying to use an illustrator path to animate into an object using trim paths in after effects. I keep having this issue of the trim paths doing a stroke fill initially and then removing it after 50% or so of the trim path. I tried using a mask to cover the hoped for negative space with no luck.Screen Shot 2016-12-03 at 4.16.06 PM.png

      this is the shape i want to animate with three paths, in white with a black background in after effects

      this is one of three paths created to extend from center to draw the shape

      but it keeps looking something like this as I try to use trim paths (approx 40% of trim path effect)


      I have tried precomposing the shape layer and then masking over the top with no luck. I have tried making this a native shape in after effects with poor corners. not sure what else to do.


      Thanks for any help!
