working in Illustrator I have multiple layers that I want to retain before bringing into After Effects. Some of my elements have been filled using a Wacom and not filled the traditional way (pictured).
I'm aware of Select > Same > Fill color.
Is there a way of selecting all the same fill colour (yellow for example) and expanding them BUT leaving the objects on their current layer, not grouping that selection together.
There's literally hundreds of layers.
Hoping for a script or something.
Hope someone can help.
Ok. Bringing an element as messy as the screenshot I posted into aftereffects creates a massive amount of paths and slows the performance of the file. This is just one element of a massive illustrator document with hundreds of layers. I can't post that cause the campaign hasn't launched.
Aftereffects recognises the layers from the illustrator document, so merging destroys those layers and combines colour fills of different layers, which I don't want.
Sound like the answer is no for an 'easy' option, which I kinda knew would be the answer. I just need to go through each layer individually.
