I have a simple animation in Premiere that uses imported Photoshop layers, fading each one on at a time over a moving background. Suddenly, today, after months of no problems, I'm seeing that SOME of the layers are offline, while the rest are linked properly. They are all from the same underlying .PSD file. But I can't seem to relink them. Any tips?
Was the original file changed? If so, you may need to relink.
I tried relinking, and the same set of layers refused to relink. I ended up just cutting them in again. But I still want to know why this happened, and how to avoid it in future.
I have found in CS5.5 that if I imported a psd in layers, and then later changed one of the layers, I had to reimport and replace the files sometimes. I haven't figured out why.
