Outline stroke around multiple shape layers
on Jul 24, 2016 at 4:11:07 pm

Hello everyone !

I am new to after effects and i have a problem i have been trying to solve and didn't have any luck and i hope you can help

I have a character in after effects with body parts in different shape layers, i want to make an outline stroke along the character but what i end up with is a stroke on every shape layer

what i am trying to do is like this picture and to maintain the outline stroke even when animating




i hope i made sense

And thank you in advance everyone !

You'll have to duplicate the layers, move them behind all the fill layers and add the stroke there. Since the duplicate layers with the stroke need to have the same animations as the originals, might be best to do this after you've done with all the animation.
