Trying To Keep Logo's Colors After Importing
by Steve Framework on Dec 8, 2008 at 8:44:44 pm

Hello everyone. I am fairly new to Zaxwerks and Illustrator.

I'm simply trying to import my logo into Zaxwerks (3D Invigorator) with the original colors. I am able to import the logo successfully into After Effects, but the logo is completely grey and is missing all of its original colors after I import it.

How can I import my logo into Zaxwerks and have it keep its original colors?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Steve,

You need to check the box that allows you to use Illustrator colors. Keep in mind that blends and transparency effects won't be carried through.

Well...I've been doing that and it's still not working. And my logo doesn't have any blends or transparencies. So I guess I'm still confused what I'm doing wrong.

Steve,

The problem with the file was that all of the elements were grouped together. I ungrouped them and moved the different elements to different layers. Clicking "use Illustrator colors" when you import it should do the trick now. A couple of other thoughts - the logo is fairly complex and tight. You'll want to use small bevels and probably negative edge offsets to avoid having the elements crowd each other.

Hope this helps.

Jonj
