Working with Photoshop Layers in AE
by Andreas Sizynski on Apr 30, 2012 at 6:52:01 am
I am trying to make an animated overlay using some photoshop layers.
I imported the Photoshop file into AE, and I am already running into some problems.
1) Each layer only has a run duration of 10 frames (frames, not seconds). I tried fixing this by setting the comp to the desire time (6 seconds @ 24 FPS) but the layers insist on their duration of 10 frames.
2) Each layer insists on staying at 30 FPS playback.
3) I want to animate a camera trucking in on the frames. Most animated overlays (using the 3D effect to create a multiplane effect) I have seen use a null layer--what is the difference between a null and a camera layer?
I have searched other CreativeCow topics about this, but I am still confused, thanks guys!
