Hi Everyone

I'm working on a project that has a very minimal outline only style. I have a lot of different little comps making up the project, all containing assets with the same stroke widths. However, when placed into the main comp and scaled, the strokes all naturally change size.

I need to achieve a look where every line is the same thickness throughout the video, I'm not sure how I can do that without having all my assets in one comp.

Any ideas? I've attached a snapshot to help explain the issue.

Hope someone can help.

Cheers guys

would making an expression of stroke width to comp scale work? perhaps linear( function.

Don't scale your precomps, and don't move them in z-space if you're working in 3D.

I don't see why you can't build this in Illustrator and import into AE.

Are these shape layers in AE? If so, what happens if you use the continuous rasterization function on the precomps?
