I've never used After Effects before, so this is new to me. I've watched several tutorials and followed directions step by step. I am trying to animate an image that will eventually pop up on a slot machine screen. I'm using random PSD files just to practice with, but no luck.
This is what my screen looks like.
I open AE, Click File, Click Import, Click File, Select the .PSD that pertains to my project, Click Import, then this is what shows up.
Is your Photoshop document RGB or CMYK? If it's CMYK, convert it to RGB.
