Collapse transformation and generate stroke effect problem
on Dec 10, 2017 at 9:10:13 pm

Hello, everybody!

Short introduction: I'm a newbie in After Effects. 😅 End of introduction.

I made a very simple logo with Adobe Illustrator and I imported the .ai file into After Effects in order to create a very short animation.

Following the link, you can see what I did:
(I know is quite short and fast, but I wanted to have a very light size video in order to upload it fast. Sorry! 😅)






The hook symbol is revealed by a generate stroke effect applied to a mask and the letters H, O and K are revelead by simple squared masks. Obviously the problem appear when the logo scale up: if I switch the collapse transformation button on (I used a precomposition for reveal the logo and then the main composition for the scale up and down) the hook symbol appears deformed following the mask shape I used in order to reveal it.

Obviously the problem doesn't pop up if I switch the collapse transformation button off. I know the problem is the After Effects render order, but my question is: is there a way to create that type of scale up and scale down after a reveal effect without losing the image quality of a vector file?

Thanks in advance for advice, tips or whatever.

P.S. I'm italian so... sorry if my english is quite...potato! 😅
