Creating An Animation Using Brushes And Layers In Illustrator And Exporting To Image Ready

1 Select a brush from one of the various brush libraries available from Illustrator 9 or make your own. I chose the star pattern and changed the color.

2 Make sure the stars are selected then open up Edit>Expand Appearance.

3 Delete the blank <path> layer at the bottom. You've just deleted that Path. Select the first layer, the original one and select Release to Layers.

4 Export to Photoshop. Check Write Nested Layers.
