How do I get rid of the black dots that show up in gif exports? I know that they happen because of the dithering between transparencies. I've tried opening the gif in Photoshop to see if I can somehow control it in there, but I still don't know where I can turn off the dithering or if I even have the option. Has anyone solved this problem before?

Don't open the gif in Photoshop, render a lossless movie from After Effects using the Render Queue and the lossless preset, open that movie in Photoshop, and export a new gif.

You are not following the right workflow. Set the timing of each frame, use legacy export, and select loop.

When I export as a GIF from Photoshop, all I get is a single still image.

How are you exporting this, exactly?

The built-in gif export options are ... ok. I like GifGun, personally, but there are also good websites like EZGif that can convert and/or optimize gifs extremely well.
