I have a layered .ai document that I need to export into Photoshop. Photoshop is taking about 6 of the layers and putting them on one layer. All of the other items remain on their separate layers. Any ideas? I'm in a time crunch and need to get these files to our programmer.
You have used transparency in AI and Photoshop needs to condense the layers to maintain the look. Try dropping the transparency and reapplying in Photoshop.
As Larry said - lose the transparency and blending modes. This also extends to clipping masks and other "render for output" centric features that affect the visual appearance, while themselve just being empty paths...
thanks for the tips! I'll try it now!
