Release to Layers doesn´t work
on Apr 1, 2009 at 9:56:38 pm

I have autotraced a number of objects in AI. I expanded the trace and ungrouped them, so they are all individual path layers. I need to bring them into AfterEffects so I select them all and "Release to Layers Sequence." I then try to un-nest the layers by dragging them out of the parent layer and AI won´t let me. Release to Layers Build yields no results either.

I notice that when I do "Release to Layers," the path layers do not change label colors, and seem to remain .. so it seems AI isn´t releasing them. I don´t know why. I can drag each object to a new layer manually, but this will take hours... any ideas?

Running AI CS3.. I think this is Vista but it´s not my comp.

thx

Hello, I know it has been 8 years. But in case people are looking for the answer, I got the solution, 8 years after.

You have to click the main layer (JUST the main layer) and Release to Sequence. Selecting them all would mean you're trying to release each path to separate layers, which was the thing that doesn't compute in Illustrator.

Hope that helps.
