After Effects :: V6 - Imported MPG Has No Audio

Feb 13, 2013

I just created a new project in After Effects 6 and imported an MPG clip with audio, but despite toggling on the audio switches etc the clip has no sound. The visual stuff is fine but I can't figure out why the audio won't work. By the way I have checked the audio on other devices and with other playback programs and it works fine.

After Effects :: Projects Imported Into Project

Feb 10, 2014

so I frequently bring older versions of projects into my current AE project, particularly when revising spots, what I want to understand clearly is the behavior of AE projects once they are imported into a larger project.
If I make edits to the compositions of the nested project, are those changes saved back to the nested project's orginal file?  If I alter the original nested projects file, how much will it change instances of it nested in other projects?

Photoshop :: Blank Layers From Imported AVI Video?

I'm trying to upload an AVI file to make a GIF, but whenever I go to File-Import-Video Frames to Layers all of my layers are blank.  When I tried to play the click in QuickTime it told me to download an extension or something.  I downloaded Xvid, but still it's not working.

GIMP :: PSD Imported From Photoshop - Can't See Layers Properly

Nov 26, 2013

I have a PSD made in Phoshop. In this file I have layers named button which has a blue gradient color:

1. Created a round rectangle tool.
2. Under styles menu, I chose another style which I downloaded from the web (n ASL file).

The problem is that in GIMP I can't see the colors in the layers and only see the base style which is black and white.
Wandering in the web I have downloaded the three scripts from [URL] ... into the plug-ins directory of GIMP, but still it looks like I can't import an ASL file into GIMP.

The weird thing is that opening the PSD in a simple picture viewer (Gwenview) I can see the colors perfectly but I obviously can't work with the layers.

You can see in the attached files a snapshot of the picture as supposed to be (orig.jpg) and as seen in Gimp (gimped.jpg)

After Effects :: PSD Shape Layer Imported Incorrectly

Mar 14, 2013

I have a Shape Layer in Photoshop. When the .PSD is imported as a comp, AE CS6 is layering the masks incorrectly. It requires the user to manually re-order the masks to display correctly.
is there any way to interpret PS shape layers as pixels or Illustrator vectors instead of masks? [without rasterizing in PS, of course] When AE turns them into masks, AE obviously won't update the masks if I make changes to the shape in Photoshop.)

After Effects :: Turning Imported Shape Into A Mask

Nov 13, 2013

This is probably an AE 101 question.
I have a shape that was made in Illustrator. See right. It's the thought-ballon-y-looking thing.
The everything outside of the black part is transparent. I want to use this shape as a mask so that another comp will appear inside the balloon shape, but not outside the shape.
Easy to do?

After Effects :: Getting Pixelation When Add Camera Layer To Imported MOV?

Jan 20, 2014

I've created a composition with animation in After Effects.  Because of the complexity of the composition and its many layers, adding a 3D camera layer to it spawned a whole lot of issues with the wipe effects I had on the pre-existing layers and movement of my layers.  So I rendered the composition without the camera layer, nested the .mov into a new comp and added a camera layer.  The animation works great but I'm getting a lot of pixelation.  Highest HD settings, full resolution, preserving quality of layers when nesting and not sure what's happening.

After Effects :: Transparency / Alpha Great Mystery (IMPORTED PNG Sequence)

Mar 28, 2013

The problem: I am importing a PNG sequence into After Effects (CS 5.5), however AE refuses to see the Alpha channel contained within the sequence. Now before anyone jumps the gun and says, "But wait, PNG does not really support alpha, it just supports transparency!" Right, something I just learned, and still -- quite honestly -- baffles the heck out of me.
But anyway, another PNG sequence exported from the exact same program, imports into After Effects just fine with an "alpha channel" and all. I double-checked, and there is NOT an option in the program to export the PNG without transparency info.
Importing sample images from each sequence reveals the EXACT SAME THING ... both have transparency, but NEITHER have an alpha-channel per se.
1) why in the heck AE would interpret one's transparency, and not the other?2) Is there a way to FORCE AE to see the transparency of the one?3) IF not, is there something out there that will convert the PNG's with transparency to another format (TIF, TGA, PSD) with an alpha? I just don't want to have to re-render the sequences again.

After Effects :: Slow Render Time With AECS5 And Imported 3D PSD Files

Sep 20, 2013

I am working with something new in AE this week and I am curious if I am doing something wrong.  I need to insert a 3D thumb tack PSD file I imported into AE with a film I am working on.  As a test I just wanted to see what quailty the pin would render out for the final because the preview in AE looked horrible.  So I have a static shot of the Thumb tack and it is going for 10 seconds.  I started the Render and it has been going for 9 minutes so far and still shows 1hr 28 minutes left.  I've rendered 8 minutes music videos in 45 minutes on this same PC.
I am using a PSD for 3D because I do not have 3D software.

Xara :: Keeping Layers Intact From Imported PDF?

Aug 1, 2011

is it possible to bring in a PDF and keep the layers intact?

I have received some artwork with a cutter guide on and with over 1,700 entities all on the same layer, some of which are the same colour as the cutter guide.

It would be a royal pain trying to select the cutter guide line by line!

I am using XDP6

Illustrator :: Underlines Of Image Layers Imported From PSD

Oct 1, 2013

The above image is the layers panel in Illustrator of a placed PSD file that was imported with the layers maintained.
What do the dotted underlines for the two layers mean? Do they just mean they are layers or something else?
There were layer masks on those layers in Photoshop, but they were applied to the image so there is a transparency around the image.
I understand what has happened to the image, I just don't understand what the dotted lines are supposed to signify.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Same Point Group Are Imported Into Separate Layers

Oct 31, 2012

I am running C3D 2010. 

Somewhere along the line, someone in our office made our template import points into separate layers based on the RAW Description. I would like to un-do this. So far, I have deleted every point style & point label style except for 'Basic'. Inside of 'Basic', the layer is 'V-NODE'. However, some of my points are still coming in on layers like: 'V-Site-'(Raw Desc). 

I'm about to start from scratch on the template, however, I'd like to avoid that because of the array of styles that are in it.

Photoshop :: Separating Effects From Their Layers

Jan 28, 2004

Is there any way to seperate a layer from its effects, so that the effects become actual layers that filters can be applied to?

Like if I had an inner shadow, is it possible to remove that shadow effect from the layer itself and make it a seperate layer, so it is still an inner shadow but is its own raster layer, so that it is possible apply a Lighting effects filter to it?

Photoshop :: Applying Effects To Multiple Layers Simultaneously

Jan 8, 2008

I'm working on an image, and I need it to say "The Wedding of Jane Smith."

I have 4 different text layers showing up, and they're all visible. (a real small "the," a much larger "Wedding," a small "of," and a large "Jane Smith.") I like to have the different words on separate text layers so I can move them around and lay them out the way I like.

I got to the point where I wanted to apply blending effects to the text (drop shadow, bevel, whatever). Now, since I have 4 different text layers, what I'd normally do is merge them into one rasterized layer and then do my effects. But I'm wondering if there is a better, more non-destructive way.

I do video graphic design at my job, working with a video editor, and it would be extremely convenient if I could apply effects to multiple text layers without first rasterizing and merging the layers. i.e. when my boss or the client is looking over my shoulder, and I can show him what the text looks like with the blending FX without having to commit to the text placement/size by rasterizing/merging.

Photoshop Elements :: Display Is Suddenly So Big / Can't See Layers Or Effects

Aug 29, 2013

all of a sudden, the display in PSE11 is so big on my Mac that I can't see the right-hand screen components, including the layers or effects. I looked all through the preferences and can't figure out how to re-size the display back to the default. I can't even minimize the display enough to grab the corner and pull the window in a little.  Is there any way to re-set the display to the default so I can see the layers and effects, without reinstalling the program?
