Importing PS into Motion in layers
on Nov 6, 2007 at 11:00:35 pm

I am trying to import a Photoshop psd file into Motion. When I drag it in from the file browser, then set it to import all layers, it turns black and white and all my styles are off. When I put it in as merged layers it looks just like it did in Photoshop. Can anyone tell me how to import the layers and keep everything?

Hello,

If you're using layer styles, emboss, drop shadow etc. you have to convert them to physical layers by selecting the effected layer and going to:

Layer > Layer Style > Create Layer

I read about this somewhere but can't remember where. I've just tested it with a bevel and it works although I had to mess about with some masks in Motion to make it look right.

I use Motion 2 so not sure about ver 3.

Hope this helps.

Steve
