Hey guys,

I've create a very large graphic in Photoshop that will be used in AE. The graphic is 11614x7555. I need the graphic this large because I will be doing camera moves in AE to focus on specific parts of the image. The PS document is one layer of graphics and the layer behind is a 3D bevel created via Repousse.

I'm trying to import the PS file as a composition (retaining the layer size) and enabling Photoshop 3D. After I click okay AE attempts to create the composition and then crashes. Any ideas why? Is it just too large? I have the PS file located on an external firewire 800 drive. Is the speed of this too slow?

Thanks,

If you really need to do a very long zoom in/out on a large image, you can split it up into several smaller images. One scaled down copy of the whole image, and a smaller image of a cutout area. You can parent them together in AE and do your zoom. Given the size of your image, you may want to split it into several images.

Here's a tutorial that uses that technique.

Jon,

This is perfect, thank you. I tried this method and it works great. Funny thing is I've watched this before...it just didn't occur to me to use it here. I had some trouble doing it with the Repousee so I just used a different method to give it a 3D look. Thanks again!

they still haven't fixed that bug. i always worked around this by segmenting the image into smaller images or different resolutions - depending on what i needed it for. but it still seemed very cumbersome for something like a simple map-zoom.

so my new workaround: use apple's motion for this specific usecase - it handles huge images just fine.

Load your computer with the maximum amount of RAM it can handle. Use a custom low res preview and cross your fingers! You might also try working with a low-res proxy then replace that proxy when you're done editing and it's time to render out.
