Hi,

I was trying to open .Ai files in Motion 5.0.4, but it's impossible for me to load it with unfixed resolution, it loads the vectors as images.

I was looking for a Fixed resolution checkbox in Media, but it doesn't appear for me.

Otherwise, I read that exists a script to convert AI files from Illustrator to Motion, but the site is down because MobileMe it's no longer avialable.

http://www.motionsmarts.com/downloads.html

The file was called: il2motionshape.zip

And the script: Export as Motion shape.js

Someone can post the file or the zip? It will be helpful for the rest.

Thank you very much in advance.

To change the "Fixed Aspect Ratio" do the following: Open up the Project Pane. Click on the Media tab. Select the AI file. Click on the Inspector tab in the Inspector. Select the Media tab if it is not already selected. Un check the Fixed Resolution check box. Jaggy edges become smooth.

Be sure your Illustrator file is RGB.


By the way, you can not work with the individual layers in a multi layered AI file in Motion. You can do it in AE. To work with multi layers you need to convert the AI to a PSD. Hope this helps and best of luck.
