Eyedropping from an AI layer giving different color
on Jan 29, 2013 at 3:11:54 am

I have an Illustrator file as footage in one of my comps, I'm trying to grab the color from it to use on a shape layer but it's not reading it properly. It's giving me a very similar color for example theres a very light cyan in the Illustrator layer but AE is reading it as white. There's an orangey-red and AE is reading it as slightly more red.

Any ideas?

Is your project color managed? I feel like the Illustrator file came in as CMYK and the eyedropper isn't compensating.

That would be my educated guess.

No I checked. Actually after I posted this I went into Illustrator to copy and paste the color values and Illustrator is also reading the colors wrong. Its bizarre. I have two objects right beside eachother, I eyedrop one from the other, and they are 2 different colors. Never seen anything like it!!

Try breaking it apart. The other thing to consider is that it's a semi-transparent layer over another shape.... that's all I got.

Check the Color Profile assigned to the Illustrator Document.
Go to Edit>Assign Profile:



Then import the AI file in After Effects and Interpret the Footage.

Go to Color Management and cross check the Color Profile AE has assigned to the file:



If nothing works then go to Project settings(File>Project Settings) and choose None in working space.



Hope this may solve the issue.
