Hi everyone,

Bit of a weird question, I have placed jpegs / pngs in an illustrator file and then imported the ai. file into after effects.

When I start to use 3d and animate a camera, these jpegs / pngs start to flicker. I know that I should probably import the images directly into After Effects but I find moving / re-sizing images to be a lot harder to be accurate in AE.

Any ideas how I can make this work? Cheers

Bite the bullet: don't use Illustrator as a way to scale bitmapped images.

Ok thats fair enough, I guess I am just looking for more efficient ways to do things.

Any tips on making it easier in AE to adjust images? When I am zoomed in quite far when editing its very pixelated and therefore makes it pretty hard to be accurate when aligning bits etc...

Cheers

Ali

For critical alignment, I don't have any problem just highlighting the layer in the timeline, then using the cursor right, left, up & down keys.

When zoomed to 100% the layer moves one pixel. At 200% it moves a half-pixel. At 400%, a quarter pixel. And so on.

How to juggle moving the layer critically while you get the scale right? It takes time.
