a client has sent over a psd file and wants me to animate individual layers in AE.
I usually have no problem importing from Illustrator but I cannot seem to see the individual layers once imported.
I have followed the first few steps of this video and I still cannot see the individual layers?
File>Import>Composition Retain Layer Styles.
Do you think the psd file has been saved in a certain way by the client?
any help is appreciated.
See if this video gives you some ideas:

Check the document color mode, layer groups and blending options. AE cannot re-create all of these things and e.g. CMYK PSDS will import flattened. You need to convert to RGB and structure your document accordingly to get a clean AE import.
Thank you ❤️
Yup... CMYK is not going work. Thanks to Mylenium I got my work done.
In PS convert to RGB mode. And it will work.
