The following processes are performed on Photoshop's layer structure to convert it into a layer that can be imported into Live2D.

  • Group merging (prefixing a group name with * prevents merging)
  • Layer mask merging
  • Combining Clipping Masks
  • Deletion of path information (*1)

*1 “PSDs saved in PhotoshopCC2019 cannot be imported properly if they contain working paths, etc.”
    To address the problem, the path information is removed in advance before merging.

Introduction Method

Extracting the Zip file generates a script file (.jsx).
Open the PSD image file you wish to process in Photoshop and begin processing it in one of the following ways.
  • Drag and drop the script file into the gap next to the tab with the file name to start the process.
  • Select the script file in Photoshop's “File” > “Script” > “Browse” to start the process.
  • Put the jsx file into the scripts folder in Photoshop.
    Windows: C: ¥Program Files¥Adobe¥Adobe Photoshop CC (64 Bit)¥Presets¥Scripts
    Mac: Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC/Presets/Scripts
    Once the files are in the folder, restart Photoshop.
    It can now be executed from the [File] menu -> [Script].
