    Import 3D PSD to After Effects CC

    mrsnooch Level 1

      Hi all!

       

      First time poster here

       

      So, I have a .3ds model file. I have opened this in Photoshop and saved it as a PSD. When I open the PSD, the layers are there, the textures, I can move it around 3 dimensional space - all perfect.

       

      But when I import this into After Effects CC and choose composition - retain layer sizes, it adds in a comp, with a folder containing the single PSD. This time, when I choose the rotate tool, it is now a flat image that I am rotating. It's as if it has lost the 3D part of the image. Is this a problem in the saving of the PSD? Or perhaps the way I'm importing/viewing it in AE?

       

      I'm running the very latest CC of both, and the .3ds file used at the start was exported via 3DS Max 2015.

       

       

      Many thanks
