Quick Tip: Copy and Paste from Illustrator to After Effects

Posted by & filed under Quick tips.

For some reason, copying and pasting between Illustrator and After Effects hadn’t been working for me. Perhaps I had changed an option somewhere.

Turns out it was a really easy fix. So for all those that haven’t had any luck with copy and paste from Illustrator to After Effects (CS4 at least) it’s as easy as changing the following:

Preferences > File Handling and Clipboard > Clipboard on Quit

Then enable the Copy As > AICB checkbox, and then enable the Preserve Paths checkbox.
