Same animation preset, different outcomes
on Sep 18, 2011 at 5:46:53 pm

Forgive me for asking but I wouldn't know where else to go.

I use the Animation Preset under Transitions - Movement called Slide - Straight. This is what I do:

1. I create a text layer and enter my name in the middle.
2. I apply the Slide - Straight animtation preset
3. I hit play.
4. The animation plays as expected: the text slides from OUTSIDE the comp to its original position.

Now, if I try the same with my vector graphic (.ai), something else happens. Once I apply the preset on a vector graphic, After Effects doesnt place the vector graphic outside the comp but instead it places the graphic a bit to the left but still in the composition.

Does anyone have any idea why the vector graphic doesnt go outside the screen like the text does when the Slide - Straight preset is applied?
