    Animating a photoshop text layer in After Effects


      Im trying to animate the test from a page that was built in photoshop. I save the layers all seperatly but AE just recognizes the text box not the text itself, so i am unable to use the text animations on it. Is this even possible and if so how do i get it to work right?

          Have you tried Layer --> Convert to editable text? If that doesn't work, then it's a clear indication that something is up with the text like specific formatting being used, faux italic and bold text decorations etc.. AE can't replicate some of these things. It should show you the stored rasterized layer, though. Also check for grouping, clipping masks, layer styles etc. in the PSD. Certain combinations might also cause layers to not render...
