Loading a comp from Photoshop is producing "Dracula" images and changes in Photoshop does not update in After Effects. Never had this problem before in CS5, but CS6 seems to have a lot of problems with cache, memory and past images that just keep coming back even after they are deleted, layers merged, or changed. It's like a Dracula movie where the dead image keeps coming back and it is very hard to drive a stake through its heart and kill it.
Very frustrating and extremely annoying. Never had this kind of problem before. In all prior AE/PSD associated images, just reloading an AE comp file would update all images. Now it seems they can't be killed short of consulting a Voodoo priest.
I need a wooden stake and a hammer!
This is a cache issue. Make sure your software is up to date. Disable Disk Cache. Purge everything.
After Effects works by referencing the original files. It can't work any other way so if there's an old image that just won't die it's in the cache.
