Automatically Reload PSD

Is there a way to have After Effects automatically reload a PSD everytime I make changes to it in Photoshop? I'm hopping between the 2 programs a lot and that's just one step I'd rather not have to do.

Thanks

Since you haven't told us precisely what you're doing in Photoshop, it's impossible to say. For example: if you add additional layers, AE won't see them.

As far as I'm aware, I think right-clicking the file in the Project Panel and choosing "Reload footage" is the only way.

Concurred.

This would make a great feature request [link], though -- you should think about filing it. We've got Dynamic Link between Ae, Pr, En, and AME. Why not add Ps and Il?

Good idea - I'm constantly clicking that reload button to update PS an Illustrator files.. I'm on it.

Agreed, I'll put a request in.

can the reload be scripted or quick-keys?
