ProAnimator-Illustrator Pathfinder Problem

I traced out a picture of a television in Illustrator and used the the pathfinder tool to subtract the tube section from the main television body. When I import the Illustrator file into ProAnimator the tube section is not cut out. Is there something I’m doing wrong? Thank you for your help.

Hi Ryan,

When you use the "Pathfinder > Subtract" tool to cut out a hole in the television, make sure you use the "Expand" command as well.

Once you use "Expand", you should be able to see the cut out when you open the Illustrator Object in ProAnimator.

Best,
Edward
