Boris Continuum Complete 6 AE’s Extruded EPS filter provides an easy way to import and extrude Adobe Illustrator layered vector logos and graphics in Adobe After Effects. The filter includes full integration with the After Effects 3D camera and lighting system and incorporates the same 3D material presets and free-form deformation properties of other BCC 6 AE 3D Objects filters. The filter is capable of tracking an EPS file using a Watch Folder, making the EPS file “live” should it be edited in Adobe Illustrator. A handy “Keep EPS Color” feature lets you preserve the original fill colors for each element as a diffuse color option of the material.
