Hi all. I've just imported a layer from Photoshop into an After Effects composition, so I've got a house that I've cut around and is going in the distance of my backround. The problem is that it only remains there for one frame. I've tried placing it above and below each of the other layers but it still disappears during the preview.
Any thoughts?

Thanks

Go to AE Preferences, and change the duration of still footage to Length Of Comp.

It's been such a long time since I've messed with that setting that I can't remember under which category within AE Preferences you'll find it.

Another possibility: did you mistakenly import the photoshop document as an image sequence... and since there's oone image in the sequence, it shows up as one frame?

Hi Dave, it did seem to be one frame only as the duration, which I wasn't sure how to alter.
So I just imported It again as "Composition - Retain Layer Sizes" and then "Editable Layer Styles"

This works perfectly now, as the image has the same duration as my AE Composition.

Thanks!
