BUG: unable to import PSDs with video layers
I'm importing PSDs with rotoscoped and affected video layers into After Effects. If one of the video layers in the PSD comes from a video file (in photoshop: Layers>Video Layers>New Video Layer From File.../or file>open and open a video file) and I try to import that PSD into After Effects I get any number of errors. See screenshots. If I remove the MP4/MOV layer in Photoshop and try to import then the error/bug doesn't happen.
Even if I save the PSD with video layer hidden I still get the errors.
I was able to reproduce these errors both on the current version and current BETA version in MacOS Catalina.
Dialogue box says "The Photoshop Library operation failed because Quicktime is not installed on this computer" Quicktime is obviously installed so that was not the issue, the issue was that After Effects produces a bug the PSD was links to an MP4.
When you try to do the same thing with a MOV file you get a similar error "After Effects error: Problem with the document. Missing Footage in the file. ( 39 :: 0 )"
With the second error all animation disappears. In After Effects the imported PSD is stuck at the frame the playhead in Photoshop instead of seeing animation.
This issue is related but incomplete explanation:
There's a few threads of discussion about this issue dating pretty far back:
Please make Photoshop Video Layers and After Effects play nice again, like in this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIUhyNAwcTs&feature=youtu.be , it gives us a world of possibilities.
I somehow was not having this issue a couple days ago, not sure what I did differently. Though I was getting errors in After Effects things worked as they should.
