Release the Layers!

If you find yourself creating Web animations, then Illustrator and its Blend Tool (W) can be your best friend. However, when you expand a Blend in Illustrator (Object>Blend>Expand) it leaves you with a Group. This makes it difficult to export to Photoshop or ImageReady for animation since exporting to PSD will flatten the Group layer. To get around this, immediately after Expanding the Blend, choose Release to Layers (Sequence) from the Layers palette’s flyout menu. This will convert all of the paths in the group to layers, thus preserving each object when you export to a PSD file.
