Unable to recognize .psd file

Post by rasponien » Sun Sep 24, 2017 11:03 am

Hello!

I created an animal in photoshop recently and wanted to import it to creature to animate it.
I firstly named it as creature.psd, the Long-Horned Bison.psd. Anyways, whatever the name of this .psd file is, Creature doesn't want to
find it in the source folder (but it can find various different .psd files in some mysterious way).
The .psd file consists of 7 different layers - Head, Body, four legs and a tail.

I watched few tutorials about it, how should I do it correctly, but also I did not see any flaws in my workflow.
Is there anything I can do, to make my photoshop file recognizable?

Waiting for your response

Hmmm.

There's this weird behavior. It doesn't show the .psd file, but when I write the name of my .psd file manually, it works.
Not sure what casuses it tho.

Hello,

That does sound rather strange. I have never encountered this issue before. I will do more testing but so far, my tests with local psd files on my system have no issues. I am not sure if it has anything to do with the permissions or file settings on you specific psd files. In the PSD Open File Dialog, if you type "*.*" in the file textbox, it should list all files. Does that file show up for you as well?

For your info, Creature does not do anything special for file listing of PSD files, in fact, it just uses the Window standard file listing mechanism for file listing ( the official way to do it ). So I am not sure if this sounds like some sort of file settings/permissions issue with that file in particular.

Thanks

Hey!

Yep. Happened only once with one particular .psd file. Other files seem to open without any further problems.
Thanks for the information tho.

With regards.
