I have a design made in Illustrator (see pictured below) which is separated into 3 layers (one for the yellow, one for the orange, and one for red).
I want to apply separate effects in Photoshop to each of these layers. I want to keep editability of the design intact. I do this by placing the illustrator file as linked. However, the linked item comes into photoshop with whatever layers are shown/hidden in the illustrator file.
What I am hoping for is some way to override layer visibility as it is possible to do in InDesign so that I can keep my design intact in Illustrator and apply effects to each layer as separate layers in Photoshop.
I want my Photoshop layers to be set up like above, but with each layer showing different illustrator layers. In InDesign there is an option to create layer overrides on linked illustrator files, but in Photoshop I can't find such a feature. One workaround would be to link the Illustrator file into another file three times, on three separate artboards and sequentially hide and show the layers and update each link. (This can't be done in Photoshop as they all update at the same time.) However, this is really clunky and it seems like there must be a better way since this functionality exists in InDesign.
