Hi, I've never used a Photoshop psd image in AE CS6, but yesterday I did, thinking I could tweak more easily...it's a flat (non3D) one-layer image with alpha. I dragged it into the project. The layer has some intense rotation expressions if that matters. I can work on it fine, it plays using RAM preview and I can save a portion of it as a RAM Preview Save, which is also fine. But when I render to a video file, the object disappears complete....I just get a black screen. Any thoughts? Also, being a relative newbie, if there is a way to sub a TIFF or something into this layer without losing all my work, please let me know how to do that as well. Thanks!

Have you set the layer as a guide layer?
Todd, that was it! Thanks! Not sure how Guide Layer got checked, but once I unchecked it, it rendered just fine. I'll have to delve into why, as a Guide Leyer, it would render non-psd stills, but not the psd ones. Here's a screenshot, but just because I took one. Other than that, it seems you put your finger on the issue!
