Wrong image size on PSD import

So I've worked with layered PSDs as footage for AE quite a bit and never run into this. The title says it all really -- a cropped PSD, with "Delete cropped pixels" checked, when brought in as a composition is completely the wrong size. This is whether I import as Composition or Composition -- Retain Layer Size.

 

My PSD is 2484 x 3101. When I import the layers all come in at 4844 x 3229, the original precrop size of the PSD. There are only four layers, and only RGB channels, no alphas or anything else.

 

This happens even if I save out all my layers as TIFs then reconstruct a PSD from those.

 

Is this expected behavior?

No, this is not expected behavior. Maybe this is the case: Maybe you have numbered PSD files: let's say your original is "file_01.psd" and the resized one is "file_02.psd", so I suspect that you import those as sequence without notice and AE is taking the dimension from the first file in the sequence. Just a wild guess

Gah, of course that was it. Thank you. Can't believe I didn't think of that. Strange that there is no "Image Sequence" option or similar in the PSD import dialog box that would have probably prompted me to think about it. Means that previous versioned files need to be removed from the same location as the one you are importing of course.

This is strange, you always have the option of importing sequences, it doesn't matter if it's PSD or any other format. Anyway you don't have to delete the other files, just rename the final one so it doesn't have the same naming convention with the others

Actually you're correct about that too -- in the usual open dialog box, rather than in the PSD import options that pop up after you select that file type. And, yes, renaming any other incremented files is also a workaround.
