In Ae CS6 and higher, you can just right-click a vector layer and choose "Create shapes from vector layer."

In previous versions of After Effects, you have to manually copy and paste paths from Illustrator to Ae.

Thanks Walter,
I was able to copy and paste the paths in AE and it was pasted as masks.
But I have made the complete layers in the illustrator and need to bring it to after effects with all the shadings, gradients etc

Regards,
Dajeeth

[Dajeeth Marian] "But I have made the complete layers in the illustrator and need to bring it to after effects with all the shadings, gradients etc"

These are not all natively supported in Ae shape layers. Can you import the vector file as a composition instead, to get access to each individual layer in the Ai file?

Tried to bring as a composition but that too isn't working. All the imported layer from the comp are still as solids.


Thanks for your help
