when I import an AI file into AE, when I drag a layer into the composition the selection size is the same size as the AI file's artboard. When I am importing 30+ layers its very annoying.
How can I import layers from AI into AE with a normal sized selection?
When you import, through the import window select the .ai file and under "Import As" select "Composition-Retain Layer Sizes"
That will make the bounding box the size of the layer as opposed to the artboard.
