Auto-trace not working in After Effects CS6
on Feb 4, 2017 at 3:22:11 pm


I am a complete newbie to after effects and I am trying to trace a photoshop file in After Effects however everytime I try it seems nothing happens and I don't get a path. Can someone please help me? I been using the pen tool to work around it but I'm getting tired of having to trace everything by hand. Anyone have an answer?

auto trace is for converting RGBA channels to masks. if it's a photoshop files, you might as well trace it and prepare it in photoshop and import it to Ae as already cutout.

more about preparing photoshop files to Ae in here:

you should probably spend a decent time in here before you try to work with this software because it's not intuitive:
