Team Projects in AE crashes every time you try and copy a PSD from one composition to another
I'm trying out team projects for the first time with 2 other animators. I created a master team project file that they are trying to incorporate their existing AEP files into. Each animator imported their old AEP files into the team project. They need to copy layers from their imported comps and paste them into compositions that I made in the team project. Every single time they hit command C to copy the layers from their imported projects, AE crashes and shuts down completely without warning. This was reproducible on different computers on different Adobe accounts. It also happened on several different comps so it's not specific to a single comp being corrupted or something.
After some further digging, we discovered that you can copy and paste layers successfully in a team project if there are no PSD files in the comp you are copying from. This is clearly a bug with PSD files. Please look into this Adobe. This is a really big problem for making team projects work in AE.
Thank you for filing this bug report. We can reproduce the problem and have forwarded it to our developers for investigation.

Hi, I came to post this exact bug. We've been experiencing this on our team for months, and we have now pinpointed it to exactly as described above.
It only happens in a Team Project (the bug no longer occurs after converting to an offline .aep)
It's only when copying a layer in a comp that has a PSD file in it, or perhaps more specifically, a PSD layer imported via a Comp import.
