Usually when i try to import a layered photoshop file into after effects, i tell it to import as a composition, then a window should pop up asking what layers i want. That window does not show up when i try to open this PSD file. I tried on 2 computers then i tried a different layered file, still didn't pop up. Is there a setting to keep this window from popping up or am I going to have to export the layers individually for the rest of my life?
I think I've had this problem before, and it was related to the 'compatibility mode' option in photoshop.
Open the PSD and save it again (Or save as) to see if the check box thing that pops up about compatibility is ticked. (If the pop-up doesn't show, look in the preferences to set the compatibility to 'always ask' or 'always'.)
Can't guarantee it'll help, but you may as well give it a go.
