After Effects :: Import From Illustrator With Layers In The Same Place?

Jan 4, 2014

when I import files from Illustrator, and import them as footage to preserve the layers, I get an object for every layer. However, when I move those layers into my comp, they are either moved by default into the center or wherever I drop them. How would I move them into the comp while preserving the position of the layers in my actual ai file?

Illustrator Scripting :: Paste In Place Across Layers Script

Jun 1, 2012

I'm looking for a script to paste an object (paste in place) on top of all other layers in a file.
I know I can position a single object on the top layer and then turn the bottom layers on and off, but for my needs (and in this situation) I need to actually paste that object onto each layer.

Illustrator Scripting :: Place / Import File To Visible Layer?

Jul 26, 2013

I have been working on a script to place a psd file onto only one visible layer (document has multiple hidden layers). This java code has worked so far:
var doc = app.activeDocument;
var onFile = File("C:/Users/Desktop/Desktop/ExportedArtboard-01.psd");
var mydoc = doc.placedItems.add();
mydoc.file = onFile;
however this works with only the top layer visible (eye turned on in Ai). if top most layer isn't visible i get "target layer cannot be modified" error.

For instance say i have 1,2,3 layers. layer 1 (top most) and 3 (bottom most) would be hidden, layer 2 (middle layer) would be visible and then running the script would place the psd file on to layer 2.

After Effects :: Illustrator Files Won't Import As A Composition?

Apr 5, 2014

I'm trying to import some Adobe Illustrator files into After Effects so that I can animate them. As far as I understand, I need to import them as a composition so that the layers will remain separate from each other.
However whenever I try to do this, I go through the whole process- select the file, select composition, click OK,  it does nothing. The file does not appear anywhere in my project, it's as if I haven't done anything.

i had imported a few hundred Illustrator paths to After Effects, then used "Create shapes from vector layer" to make them editable Shape layer paths to then run scripts that equalize the number of vertices on each path.

1) how import AE Shape paths and their Fills to Illustrator?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Macro To Create Layers And Place Text In The Layers?

Aug 12, 2013

We use AutoCad to name our dxf files for our Burn Table and whenever we get a new part it is a repetitive task to input layers and common text.  So what I am curious is can AutoCAD input the layers and text automatically using a Macro?

I want the Macro to put in 6 layers and choose the layer color and title then input text boxes with word in 3 different layers.  There will be about a total of 10 different text boxes with text already put in the boxes by the Macro.

Illustrator :: Import Vector Shape Layers To Photoshop?

Nov 19, 2013

I'm on this project that i need to digitize an old artwork. It requires vector (AI) & shading (PS).
I have all line art done in AI. There's like 50 layers on it. The original artwork has "shading" and "highlight" on it used by Air brush.
I just want to import all the layers in photoshop at once. It will be time consuming if i do it one by one SO is there any way that I can transfer all the vector path from AI to PS?
I tried Meshtool and its hard to control. Unlike in Brush tool in PS, I got the freedom to adjust the opacity, softness, etc.

Photoshop :: [CS4] How To Place Layers Evenly Around A Circle?

Jul 25, 2009

using imageready for this task and of course imageready has been integrated into Photoshop CS4.

What I want to do is evenly distribute layers around a circle, each layer must be evenly spaced.

This image is just a very quick and dirty example of what I want (aside from the fact that it isnt evenly distributed and I just painted dots around). What I want to do is evenly place these dots around the circle, each dot must be the same distance from the one beside it and across from it.

InDesign :: Place Multiple Images On Separate Layers?

Mar 30, 2014

I'm working with InDesign CS5.5 on a Mac and need to import multiple images into separate layers. The imprint project has a base layer template and several company logos that need to go into their own layer. Is there a way to bring all the logos in at once and have them create their own layer without manually creating each layer and placing images one by one? Can InDesign do this automatically or is there a script? I can't seem to find a way to automate this process.

After Effects :: How To Import From Mocha

Jan 15, 2014

Okay so my least favorite After Effects activity is rotoscoping. Even so, I have been rotoscoping many shapes to blur out a sticker across many shots in mocha. I have about 10 minutes of rotoscoped footage and all of my mocha shapes were able to import except this one.
The shape looks correct in mocha but when I import the mocha shape data into After effects I get this terrible moving mess that must be 1000 pixels tall. It is nowhere near what I spent so much time matching up to my footage.
when After Effects decides it wants to change my rotoscoped shape into something entirely incorrect?
