    Use Videos Created in Photoshop within After Effects - Possible?

    Henrik Nerr

      Hello, newbie here. Can i use create video files in Photoshop CC and then import them in After Effects CC as video files?

       

      I create video files in Photoshop CC using Photoshop CC's timeline* and save the video project in Photoshop as TIFF or PSD.

       

      When i import these TIFFs oder PSDs to After Effects, they will only appear as still images, whatever settings i use on import (footage vs. layers). I don't see how to have the TIFFs or PSDs playing in After Effects as a video.

       

      Is it even possible to bring a video project from Photoshop to AE as video and not as a still image?

       

      I understand that the alternative would be to render the Photoshop video as MP4 and bring that MP4 into After Effects. I would prefer to avoid the MP4 route though.

       

      Thanks!
