  1. You cannot open layered .PSDs in Adobe Media Encoder, it doesn’t support the file format. I tried it.

  2. Dag, Thanks for your comment. I just tested AME again and I’m able to render layered video files just fine. I ran three tests as: 1) Video layer plus adjustment layers, 2) Video layer converted to Smart Object + Smart Sharpen plus adjustment layers and 3) setup from #2 plus a still image dropped on top. All three rendered just fine. To help troubleshoot the problem you’re seeing please let me know:
    1) Which version of Adobe Media Encoder you’re using
    2) Which platform (Mac, Windows)
    3) Whether or not you’ve selected (.psd) from the list of supported file types in AME’s Open dialog.

    Thanks, Jay

  3. Hi Jay,

    A you referring to Photoshop EXTENDED only in your article?
    My problem is as follows: I open my DSLR- mov. files in Photoshop CS 5.5 enabling it as smart object, apply my nice filters that I can preview beautifully in the animation timeline below, making sure that it applies to all the frames and then save it as layered PSD. It looks astonishing with the appropriate filters…

    But: When I let AME do the encoding as a H264 file, it produces a Film Clip only from one frame; of course I made sure that the originial move file is available, i.e. on the desktop. Would you have any hints?

    Rendering video in Photoshop just takes uo too much time, and I ‘d be saved if I could render the files anywhere else (e.g. in AME).

    I’d be very glad

  4. Frederick, I see exactly what you mean. I can apply sharpening to a smart filter and it renders correctly in AME, but when I apply a creative filter (e.g. crosshatch) it renders as a full-length still frame from AME. It looks like you’re stuck rendering from Photoshop for the time being (unless you want to upgrade to After Effects). Hopefully, this will be added in the next version of Photoshop.

    I’m working in extended BTW.
