Render to any Quicktime format or image Sequence that supports Alpha channels, then import that file into PS as a video layer or using the Frames to Layers import assistant.
Well now that you have told me to save with some sort of an alpha channel, it works perfectly.
Select layer,"Composition,Make movie". Then navigate to "Output module" and choose an option that has "alpha channel" in the title.Choose a name for your project "Output to". I now use "lossless alpha".I don't know if that is the best one, but it seems to be working fine.
There is no "Quicktime" option in CS5 as in older versions of AE.
I was trying to save as a video in general or for photoshop and that just wasn't working out well.
I don't know what the "Frames to Layers import assistant" is that you mentioned though. I still tend to drag and drop, rather then import.
Thanks for your help.
Do you have Quicktime installed?
Yes i do have quicktime installed, but adobe changed the setting for AE CS5. There is no save for web or save in quicktime format.
Also, you have to update all of your old plugins as CS5 is strictly 64 bit. That is a good thing of course.
