I have created a 3d object in Photoshop which I have animated in a simple, 2-second sequence. [Figure 1.1] I want to export this as a video with transparency/alpha. However, when I try to run the exported render, all that plays is a black screen.

This baffled me a little bit and, while tweaking settings around, I ended up exporting the sequence as PNG keyframes. Once I saw the keyframes, I realized that it is exporting the object properly, but completely without lighting [Figure 1.2].

How do I properly export my 3d object as a video with transparency and lighting included?

Troubleshooting Update:

  • I tried closing and re-opening photoshop. No luck.
  • I've tried exporting as JPEGs in case the transparency was causing issues. No luck there either.

It turned out that updating to Photoshop CC 2014 fixed this problem. All lighting, meshes, and materials is now visible in exports.
