I am trying to make extruded 3D layers of a logo In AE CC 2017. when I import a project from Illustrator CC 2017, place it on the timeline and select "Create shapes from vector layer", it creates a grey rectangle. There is no opacity on any layer in the Illustrator project and none in AE. The layers in Illustrator came from a Photoshop project,Any ideas on what's causing my results? Illustrator project

AE project


It looks like it is not vector but raster. To use "Create shapes from vector layer" in AE, you need a vector, otherwise it should make the shape (rectangle) of size of the image. To make it vector, you can trace it manually or use Image Trace tool in Illustrator.
