I happen to have an Illustrator file which I want to convert to a psd. However my Problem is, that even though I have separate layers in Illustrator

enter image description here

it wont let me choose to "write layers"

enter image description here

so what am I doing wrong? I kinda feel dumb, since others seem to have no problem with all that.

    What are you trying to achieve in PS that you cant already do in AI? May 23, 2017 at 12:13

    @DigitalLightcraft our unity dev told me that unity can read psd files directly giving him more control over which layers he does want to display, etc. This is why he has requested for the files to be in .psd format.

Most probably because your export color profile (RGB) does not match your document color profile (CMYK).

Change "color model" to CMYK
