I've got a pretty simple .AI logo with:
TEXT (company name)
CHECK & BOX (logo)

When I TRACE the CHECK & BOX then bring the .AI into ProAnimator... the BOX is not at the same dimensions/aspect ratio that it is in Illustrator.

I have tried Grouping, UnGrouping, New Layer, Deleting, Moving, ReSizing,etc... but it still comes into ProAnimator looking weird.

Here is the .AI file for those of you that would like to load it into ProAnimator and see what it does:
Company Logo

Here is a Screenshot of what it's doing for me:

Here's a Screenshot of what it should look like:

- How can I get the CHECK & BOX to stay the correct Size/Dimensions?

- Is there a way to resize individual elements of your .AI file once inside ProAnimator?

Thanks in Advance!

Looks like you need to crank up Spike Busting and dial down the edge size.

Paul is correct.

Spikebuster will take care of the unusual spikes coming off the the tight angles.

Choosing a more subtle bevel will also help.

Often, using a small negative offset will also help preserve the space between tight objects at the expense of losing a bit of the front face.

Yeah... This did it!

Where is this elusive 'Spikebuster'?
How do I get to it?
(I'm sure I'll need it someday)

Thanks in Advance!
