Illustrator to After Effects Motion Paths

@AdobeAE notes an Adobe TV tutorial by Colin Smith on copying paths from Illustrator as motion paths in After Effects:

"Have you ever tried to create a complex motion path in After Effects? This tip will show you just how well Illustrator and After Effects communicate using a simple copy and paste to the clipboard and transfer illustrations to motion paths in After Effects!"

Note: this topic was covered earlier by Aharon Rabinowitz in Importing a Motion Path and by Trish Meyer in Pasting Paths from Illustrator to After Effects: The essential trick to paste multiple paths to After Effects Shape Layers at once.

Update: just a note on an Illustrator script resource Scriptographer via the Plural Blog.

you can do way batter and easier animations with lens flares from Video
and you don't have to be looking to an annoying "Adobe tv"
