So I've been having trouble keying in photoshop, so I just decided to use After Effects' keylight because it works amazing. So i keyed out my image and it looks great, so exported it from after effects as a PNG sequence (Its only one frame). In finder it looks like this


But then as soon as I import it into photoshop it turns into this crazy mess...


If you look closely theres a bunch of weird transparent blotches. Does anyone know what the problem is?

Here's how i exported it if this helps:
Composition>Save frame as>file...
then I put the settings to RGB+ alpha and rendered it.

It looks like something was written incorrectly into the transparency channel of your image. Photoshop is showing you exactly what is in the image (plus the checkerboard for transparent backgrounds).

The preview on top looks OK because it is being shown over a gray background - which seems to the gray in the image.

It may have just been some kind of weird glitch, either way I found out how to green screen in photo shop and i made something that looks fairly decent, thank you for your reply.
