Illustrator pattern tile problem in After Effects
on Aug 11, 2015 at 2:37:34 pm

Created an illustration using patterns in Illustrator (18.1.1). Looks great in Illustrator even when scaled up tremendously.
When imported into After Effects (CC 2014) and especially when scaled up a bit I see what look like thin strokes/lines on every tile of the pattern.
How can I get rid of those lines?

Project folder here:

(Saw similar post 2 years ago, but it's solution of turning off continuously rasterize didn't work in this case)

I think you'll find the answer in the comp setting, if memory serves me correctly. There's a setting for "alphs-somethingorother-layers" in there that eliminates annoying lines.

I don't have access to my AE machine at the moment. Sorry.

Several associates have reproduced this tile pattern anomaly on various Mac systems. So I don't think it's some sort of configuration, setting, plug-in, or operator error. BTW: CC 2015 produced the same results.

I don't know if it's a tile pattern error in Illustrator or an error in AE's continuously rasterize function.

As a workaround, in Illustrator I replaced the patterns in the file with my own shapes (think lots of shapes).

Two plus hours with Adobe tech support last week elevated the case to Tier 2 (48 hour call back) support. That was 6 days ago and haven't heard anything yet from them.
