I’m unable to import Illustrator .AI or Flash .FLA files into Harmony Premium 12.1 on Windows, using the following process:
Get Rights to Modify an asset library
Select Import Files from the right click menu in the Library window (or use the File menu)
Select the .AI file to import
I see a box with a progress bar, where the amount of time taken is directly proportional to the complexity of the file I’m importing)
Then nothing happens. The progress bar window goes away and I have no files in my library.
My files are saved correctly and I’ve tried multiple versions right done to Illustrator 8 (I’m using Illustrator CC). The files are RGB and have no gradients or textures, just linework.
For .FLA import, I’m using the built-in importer from the scripts toolbar and get a similar result. The difference here is that the nodes are all being created, but the elements contain no drawings. I know it’s reading the contents of the .FLA file as the nodes are named the same way as the layers, but there aren’t any drawings at all. I don’t see any in ToonBoom or on the server where my scene is saved to. I’m using Flash CS6.
I am able to make templates manually (copy nodes, paste into library) so there doesn’t seem to be an issue with actually saving to the server.
Does anybody have any guidance on this? It’s really frustrating that something happens (seeing the progress bar actually progress) but then having no resultant files.
