Can any body help me ? Scene with Trapcode Form.
- If i save my static scene in PNG or JPG file save correctly with all effect.
- If i chose PSD (I need layered psd) - layers with effects are empty.

What is the problem ?

You need to pre-render the Trapcode layer/layers if you want to export layers to PSD. Since there is no Trapcode Form for PSD you can't replicate that effect there.

AE rasterizes layers when it saves to a layered PSD. It preserves blend modes where possible, but not effects.

Better said - that's what I meant.

Are you using adjustment layers? If so, they won't translate to Photoshop. Turn off the Adjustment Layer icon in the switches panel or use Form on a solid instead.
