Illustrator is a powerful tool for creating vector elements to animate in AE, but the quirks of actually getting your artwork into After Effects can stop you in your tracks. This session will cover tips, proper workflow and useful 3rd-party tools that can help streamline the process, giving you more time making amazing animations than battling with your software.
In this session, you’ll learn:
● How to properly structure your designs (or work with someone else's) before animating
● The pros and cons of different After Effects importing options

● Handy tools to super-charge your workflow
This session is intended for beginner-to-intermediate users of Ai and Ae who'd love to save themselves time!
