egeefayCan't import illustrator cs file

Hi
It's been a while since I used Invigorator. I'm trying to import a Illustrator text file I've just created. Here's the flow

I created a text in Illustrator CS
I "create outlines" on the text
I open after effects
Create a new composition
Create a new layer
apply invigorator to layer
Select the "open illustrator file" option
Locate the Illustrator file i just created
I GET AN ERROR MESSAGE 'There were no usable vector paths in this file"
Any idea what I am doing wrong?

When you save the Illustrator file, turn off compression. You can leave pdf compatibility on.

Yes. Thank you. Unchecking the "compression" box when I go to save the illustrator CS file did the trick
Thanks a lot

Hi guys,

Current versions of Invig and ProAnimator support Illustrator CS, so long as compression is turned off in the save diologue box. filled solids work best. Older versions of Invigorator will require you to export the file as legacy Illustrator... which is not the same as eps, by the way.

Hope this helps.

Jon

Try checking "Create PDF Compatible File" only.
