    Import Illustrator paths into AE 17

    dianej38942313 Level 1

      Currently working on an architectural projection project and thought to make nomenclature paths in Illustrator, assuming there would be something like 'dynamic link' which would update AE files if changed in AI, same as PS files in AE.
      There are many complex paths in AI file, so C&P is hardly an option.
      When I import the AI file directly with AICB checked to preserve paths and, importing as composition/maintain layer size, the imported file is only seeing top level folders, not even one layer down, paths seem to be converted to bitmaps, or not directly editable in AE and not linked to main AI file.
      I would have thought there would be an easy solution to this issue with AI. I should have just used PS though path tools in AI are far superior to PS.

       

      Is there something I've missed here?
