It's an absurd that there is no Animated GIF option in the Media Encoder for MAC OS computers..
Does really Adobe imagine that the work around solution using photoshop is serious?
I would say it's a Lazy sloppy solution
Its's time consuming and simply involving many steps.
So really, Adobe thinks that in a hard quick pace environment of creative businesses this can be seen as
a solution? It's Surreal and it exposes how Adobe is not concerned at all.
RIDICULOUS to say the least..
I am sorry for this hassle & I can understand your frustration.
As of now, exporting Animated GIF is a windows only feature. A lot of editors/users requested for this feature on Mac.
I request you to submit a feature request for the same.Feature Request/Bug Report Form
