I`ve never used after effects only illustrator, so just asking,
can I import my illustrator curve designs into AE and have them grow out from their start point including their colours and gradients?
so the lines look like they are being drawn out at the same time,
I see a lot of these types of animation on the web, tv etc around logo`s and effects, not sure if I can design them first in AI though as the finished design to bring into AE for animating out,
You absolutely can, it is as simple as copy and pasting from AI to AE.
You just create a solid in AE and paste onto the solid. Then add a stroke or write-on effect and animate to taste
awesome thankyou! then AE is my next purchase.
