There is nothing wrong. You simply do not understand how PS layer styles work. if you want the feather, get rid of the bevel or vice versa.
Typically when I have PSD's in after effects, I try to avoid layer styles. Call me superstitious, but asking two different programs to interpret some of the more intricate features of a file the exact same way is asking for trouble. So what you could do here is quickly create a temporary rasterized version of these effects for use in after effects by doing this:
-select everything with ctrl + A
-copy the flattened version with ctrl + shift + C (NOT ctrl+c)
-then paste that in place with ctrl + shift + V (NOT ctrl+v)
Now, you've got a nice style-less version of the layer ready to be imported into after effects.
Then, if you make any changes to it in photoshop, all you have to do is those quick 3 steps... yea I know it's still a hassle.
Well you actually shouldnt, layer styles interpret perfecty, they are same to PS and AE. My problem was with feahering, but thank you for sharing the technique!)
I do you want a blurred circle overlaid on your map, or do you want something that looks like a button?
The blurred circle is easy, just apply A blurt to the layer set the blend mode to overlay or multiply or whatever.
The button is just a layer style.
