Is there a setting i need to enable somewhere for the PSD renders to export with layers?With adobe dimension i used to get PSD files that had the background in one layer, the render in one, sharpened render in a third and then layers for depth, materials and object masks. with substance i don't get all that when rendering to a PSD file.

I reset preferences in both Photoshop and Stager without success. However, If I disable GPU render, I get my layers. This is much slower. Is this how it's supposed to work? Were you able to get layers with GPU render?

Tried with GPU turned off and then i get the layers also, so its related to the gpu rendering it seems. With dimension i got them regardless though.

Hello,Hello, is it possible to have a screenshot? if you select PSD in export format, you can 16 or 32 bit/channel and after the export done you should have a PSD with layers like in Dimension. 

 

Screenshot in French but you should see all the layers rendered with stager.

I have this same problem. This feels like a step backwards. I now need to do separate renders without the background and create a mask.

Here is a link to the file. When I render to a PSD, the only layers are a flat rendered image and a background layer.

Here is screenshot of Viewport Camera Rendering for Ps file. You can download Ps file from https://www.dropbox.com/s/zknn9wtmib2im0r/Take%2012-11-Viewport%20camera.psd?dl=0

All layers are available in Ps. Rendering of other Cameras Views in Stager take very long. But I think I will get the same result as for Viewport.

at least for me it does not matter what camera i render with, all renders take the same time depending on what resolution the camera is set to. So no one knows why it wont render layers anymore? I tried to check if any specific hardware is required for it but couldn't find anything.

Interesting. No matter what I do I only get a flat image with no additional layers group. I'm trying to render camera 2, but even if I render all I just get separate PSD files with flat layers. I don't see any additional settings to adjust.

Hello, all is ok on my side. Like @Ares Hovhannesyan  i think you should reset preferences.

After speaking with support, I was informed that Layered PSD rendering is CPU only at the moment. It feels like this software was not ready for prime time. We're paying an extra subscription fee for an application that's lacking basic functions of what's included in Dimensions with the normal creative cloud plan.
