retaining vector data in Motion 2
on Aug 7, 2007 at 10:09:33 pm

Hello,

Is there any way I can bring .ai, .eps or .pdf files in to motion 2 and keep the vector data so that I can scale things up and adjust control points? If not is there a way to convert text to outlines?

I don't really want to have to redraw type so that I can animate it.

Thanks for any help.

Steve

Do some searching for illustrator import plugins for Motion. There used to be one but it's not coming to mind. Stock Motion does not have vector support the way you want it.

Thanks Noah,

Thought that might be the case. I found a few illustrator scripts at http://www.motionsmarts.com which are useful if you only want to bring a few shapes in.
