Hi all,

Is it possible to import a Photoshop file containing layer groups with layer masks. It seems After Effects disregards the Layer Mask when making the Layer Group in to a comp.

Thanks in advance,
jon

I don't know much about Photoshop, but it ought to work. Check out the following to see if you made any minor errors:

Thanks for the reply Dave,

Yeah, I actually read up on the photoshop import section before posting. The only tid bit about layer groups is:

Photoshop layer groups are imported as individual compositions.

Doesn't really say if it will import its layer mask.....hmmm.

---I made some luma mattes of the actual layer mask as a work around, but still wonder if this is possible
