Layered PSD file becomes QuickTime picture when import to DVDSP 4

I have a layered PSD file that I want to use as a layered menu in DVDSP4, but on import it becomes a QuickTime picture. I'm already using two layered PSDs in layered menus, both of which are fine. 
Any suggestions?

This is ancient but there are probably people still out there looking for the answer. Try this...
1) First off, make sure the color mode of your PSD is RGB.
2) Rasterize all layers. DSP does not like text, masks, layer styles or anything of the sort.
3) Make sure there are no additional alpha masks or channels.
4) I think this is the one that gets people. It's awkward but it has fixed my problem in the past. Basically DSP needs the locked "Background" layer in your file to see it correctly. Maybe that's what it looks to for the file dimensions. I'm not really sure but it needs to be there. Just create a new file with the same dimensions and duplicate your layers into the new file. Save As... Done.
Hopefully this will help some get past this annoying problem.

    Apologies I was wrong about text. It doesn't necessarily need to be rasterized.


    Also since this is a bug and there are many variables, I can't guarantee success. One more helpful thing to note is that if you do in fact already have a PSD that is coming in correctly (as OP stated) then you might try copying all of the layers in the problem PSD to the PSD that is working and save it new. Once again, convoluted and annoying but it may just solve your problem.

Psd corrupted!!? (Layers Gone)


I don't think I've ever seen a PSD file corrupted on disk myself. Often it's a sign of system instability. Did you have a crash or power failure while it was saving (keeping in mind that it may appear to finish before it's actually all the way saved to disk)?

Are your disk hardware and file system healthy? Look in your event logs for any indications of failures.

Try some repair tool:
PSD Repair Kit is the ultimate Adobe PSD repair tool that is a must-have for any digital artist, photographer or other professional working with numerous PSD files.

I have a big layered Photoshop (psd) image. I have to cut this image and use it for web graphics. How will i do that in photoshop cs3? I want a step by step well explained tutorial for performing this...


Click on the file tab; Navigate to Scripts; Click on "export layers to files";
A browser window pops up
Create a folder to where your images will save and click save.
You'll see it working to save your images... when it's done, visit the newly created folder and open all the files back into photoshop.

On the first image, press Shift Control Alt S, or Shift Command Option S on a mac. This pulls up the save for web dialog box. It is already configured to a setting that will work for web graphics... so choose Save, and then choose where to store the image. (I would make a new folder called "saved for web".) Repeat for each image.

You probably need to flatten the image to get it into a background layer only. Choose in menu: Layer/Flatten image then try to save your image.

If it didn't work, then most likely your image is in 16 bits/channel mode, change it to 8 bits/channel. Choose in menu: Image/Mode/8 bits/channel.

MPEG4


MPEG-4 is a graphics and video compression algorithm standard that is based on MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and Apple QuickTime technology. Wavelet-based MPEG-4 files are smaller than JPEG or QuickTime files, so they are designed to transmit video and images over a narrower bandwidth and can mix video with text, graphics and 2-D and 3-D animation layers.

DVD studio pro 4.1.2 - problem menu appearance I am working on DVD studio pro 4.1.2 on mac... All media files and project files are on external hard drive. I created my own project with new manes designs. It was working fine so far, and the problem now is lke this (sorry i don't explain it in the most professional terms): can't open my last updated project... the software is working but nothing is coming up. So i opened an older version... and it came up... but IT DOES NOT SHOW ME ANYTHING ON THE MENUS THAT WERE DESIGNED, NO PICTURES NO BUTTONS (HOW DO YOU CALL THEM? TEMPLETS? STYLS? ) anyways, so i only see a grey menu, but i can see that pictures and audio and video files are linked to it in the side bars.... even the text... all .... BUT, IT IS NOT APPEARING IN THE MENU VIEW! threw opening an old project i could open the recent one... but it is the same there... no visual view of the menus i worked on... although i see they are connected, and i can also do simulated preview, and the sound works, but black screen. then i can click "in the dark" there to change from menus (at the simulation) and it takes me to the videos that are attached, and they work... But where is all the visual menu??? So, i have no idea what i did wrong on the way... the last time i worked on it, the project was finished, and i tried to do "build and formate" ... but it did not finish because of a "high bit rate" error, of one of the video files... so the process was not done... now what? with appreciation!
