Multi-layer .psd export for import to Motion

Recommended Posts

Hi - I can't find this listed as I'm describing it.


I've drawn a diagram in Designer and want to drop it into Motion as a multi-layer file, so I can then add effects to each layer.


If I go to Export Persona and select all the layers, then export as .psd file, I still end up with a flat file.


What am I doing wrong?


I know this can be done as I've done it before, but several months ago and i can't remember! :/

Also don't forget as you drag the PSD in Motion on to a group you need to wait to the pop up menu appears and gives you to the option to import all layers, gets me all the time. :)

Hi DSchu2,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
I'm assuming you have exported to PSD using the preset PSD (Final Cut Pro X)? Is that correct? If so, a few objects/constructs on the original afdesign/afphoto file may had to be rasterised or there may be another issue going. We already have a few reports of a few PSD's falling to import as layered files in motion. Any chance you can provide  the original afdesign/afphoto file from which you exported the PSD? I can provide an upload link if you wish to keep the file private.
