Either some issues with the PSD loader plug-in itself or, which is more often the case, data used by the PSD, meaning in most cases fonts... Look for oddities along those lines.
thanks for your reply, is there someway to fix the psd loader plugin in someway on the account of the user which we are having issues loading the psd into afx?? its weird cause if I import the psd into after effects using a different user on the same imac it all works ok?
could you explain any more about the potential font issues? a while back my girlfriend loaded a load of fonts into the system and it screwed up the whole system for a few days, i eventually took all the fonts off
and things became stable again.
Many thanks for any more suggestions
