Hello Kind Forum Geniuses,
I'm having trouble with after effects projects in CS5.5. The projects in question were originally created using CS4. Basically we have a number of Illustrator assets (also created with cs4) that were imported as compositions (without retaining layer size). When these projects are opened in CS5.5, the layers are all over the place. I've tried opening the illustrator files and saving as CS5, but that doesn't seem to work. The funny thing is that we aren't having problems with any illustrator files brought in as a comp retaining layer size.
Anyone hear of a fix for this issue?
Mac OS X 10.7.3
2x2.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
24 GB RAM
That might be a legacy bug showing its ugly teeth. Fixing AI issues is a constant struggle and somehow they never get it right. Have you considered re-saving the AI files actualyl to an older format? For me, CS3 offers the best working option...
Thanks for the reply, Mylenium. I just tried saving the illustrator files down to CS3 with no success. We thought that maybe Adobe changed the way that they handled the "artboards" in Illustrator and that was the root of the issue, but we have no way of telling. I'm hoping there's a solution other than manually updating each layer in our projects (hundreds at this point!).
