Hi...for a .psd with say 10 layers imported into After Effects I'd like to add an 11th layer. How do I import this 11th layer into After Effects?
Sorry about the basic question, thanks!
You can do this:
1. Go to File > Import.
2. Select the very same PSD file you already imported as Composition.
3. Still in the Import dialog, select import as "Footage", not as "Composition".
4. In the next dialog, AE asks you if you want to import the PSD as "merged layers" (not what you want) or if you want to choose a specific layer in the PSD file (see image below). Pick this option and just select the new layer. That's it.
But say you added 10 more layers. Is there a good way to import the next 10 without damaging your original 10 linked layers?
