importing gif/psd animation/no matte to AE
on Mar 26, 2010 at 5:51:51 pm

Trying to important an animation I made in photoshop to AE. The gif has no background, no matte,just transparent plus what I drew on it. (hopefully I'm using the right terms. The point to it having no background is so I can generate it in AE and have that lay under the entire animation so I won't have make an individual background for every frame.When I import it as a gif animation, it suddenly has a white matte. I can't import it as a psd or it won't animate. Help PLEASE!

don't know if this helps but i did something similar and I saved everything as a PNG file instead and my background stayed transparent.

To save it as an animation it has to be in gif format. Thanks though.

Oh, baloney! Who told you that? Is that a Photoshop rule or something?

AE is very comfortable with using image sequences. Go do yourself a favor and look up image sequences in AE's online help.
