I am trying to import a photoshop file authored in Photoshop CS5.1 into Flash Catalyst CS5.5, and Flash catalyst crashes every time part way through the import. A few specifics:
Mac OS X 10.6.8
I have searched this forum for suggestions, and I have tried a number of them:
* Removing layers from the source psd file to find a culprit layer (Removing all but one layer still crashes)
* Running Photoshop in 32 bit mode, dragging the layers to a new document and saving
* Waving chicken bones over my laptop (Nobody really suggested this, for good reason -- it doesn't work)
I have also replicated this crash on other Macintosh computers running the same Catalyst and Photoshop versions.
I have included part of the crash dump below. I've highlighted the section that mentions how many crashes I've had. I am happy to provide .psd files to demonstrate the issue, and troubleshoot any way necessary.

Hum. Have you tried a new Photoshop file with say one layer in it and just a fill or something very basic, then importing that in?
This might tell us if it is the PSD that has the issue or the import engine in Catalyst.
You said you removed the layers. So you tried importing each of the layers one by one into Catalyst with success? Then that means you have one layer that is troublesome. I would suspect that there is a filter or effect that has been applied that source of the issue.
