I am a beginner in making videos and since the last time I have made a video in After Effects, I found it very complicated if I wanted to add some shapes, or images to my composition and since I had my mockup already made in Photoshop I thought I will do the vide in photoshop. I tried to import that file into After effects but it merged some layers that it shouldn't have done even with my choice of keep layers editable.
I have attached the settings of my video render, specs of my personal laptop and my work computer (imac).
I thought my personal laptop isn't strong enough to render the video.
After I click to render it just starts to load forever and nothing happens. I feel like I could leave photoshop load all day and nothing would happen on both computers.
What am I doing wrong?
Can you spell out your workflow again, it sounds complicated. If you have Premiere Pro it's best to use that for creating videos (adding in After Effects for things like special intros).
You don't seem to have enough RAM and you need a lot of spare disk capacity to render videos.
I made a mockup, well several of them, but I only started to animate this one. I want to imitate live website usage with my mockup, by revealing layers, "scrolling" on page designs etc. I have made everything I need and I wanted to export. I set up the high and low details, none of them does anything. the cursors just load for a really long time but never finishes. I am not sure this additional information helps?
I could make animation and export as video 3 years ago in photoshop, I had no problem with it except for the available formats. I had about the same complex structure of layers and I could just export normally. Did something change in exporting videos since then?
ok so I just exported my video In media encoder, but I would still like to know, what is wrong with my settings or anything in Photoshop.
Do you have access to Premiere and After Effects?
I have access to them yes, to most software in Adobe.
Premiere works, I can export there the video, but Aftereffects merges layers that it should not even with keeping layers editable.
I still want to know why photoshop does this. Is it my settings? Or should I completely forget about exporting videos in photoshop?
It's best to use the correct applications for this (if you have them); Photoshop can do some of the things you want but it is a bit clumsy for sophisticated and complex video image manipulation, as mentioned After Effects and Premiere (and outputting via Media Encoder) are the tools to use IMO.
Thank you for the answers, it is a bit weird, that I cannot export in Photoshop, but if there is no more detailed answer that Photoshop cannot do everything, I will just accept that.
I started to use After Effects and Media Encoder instead or all 3 combined.
At least that is a very good feature that projects can be easily transferred to another Adobe software to edit there or for export.
Thank you for your help! 🙂
