Basically ive scanned in a drawing and used Live Trace in illustrator cs2 to create a mask that i have then copied into after effects. I hope I did it properly, i pressed expand and then it brought up all the points and copied over. I then have a solid ive copied them onto but the problem is there are about 1000 masks and it takes ages to render anything! Whats the best way of having less masks or doing it more effieciently so that it renders quickly.......if there is a way? Is there sometihng in illustrator i should do?
