Hi.

I am working on a project that requires some small background items painting out.

I export the frame from AE (composition -> save frame as), open the frame in PS, fix the area I need to on a new layer and save the file, import the fixed PSD file as footage, but when I drag it into the comp it is 1/4 the size it "should" be.

I put the word should in inverted commas because clearly I am doing something wrong. I have done this type of job many times before and I'm sure I'm just making a simple mistake but despite trying I just can't figure out where I'm going wrong.

Can anybody help me out?

Thanks

Stuart.

When you > Save Frame As is your composition at Best Quality and Full Size?

Stuart

you can save the frame in two different ways:
1. Save Frame As> File
2. Save Frame As> Photoshop Layers

When you choose file, you can manipulate the export settings like resolution, compression etc as it will render out through Render Queue.

Check your Render setting and output Module whether you are using right settings or not.

the Second way will render the file as Photoshop layers with the default settings of Composition.

Thank you.

I must have changed a setting somewhere along the way.

Much appreciated.
