I have looked and I didn't find anything that helped me. I double checked and I do have 8 bit RGB. My situation is this I have photoshop CS 2 on an older PC. I just got a Mac OS X version 10.4.10 with Photoshop CS3, the graphics i make on the other pc open in FCP with all the layer styles that I have applied but not in separate layers even though i select layers when I save the file. The graphices made on the new mac version open in FCP with layers but no layer styles (nothing!) if i make effects on a red box in Photoshop all that opens in FCP is a red plain box! I have gone through and tried to spot a differance in each applications settings but I don't find anything. I don't know how else to fix this and it drives me crazy. Do you have any other thoughts that would help me here?

Layer styles DO NOT travel...

really suggest you pick up the Photoshop for Video book....

you are making your life hard here...

Essentially.. you need to merge layer styled layers if you want to import a layered doc.
