I am not able to select anything but "Create Frame Animation" in the Timeline. I am trying to create a Video Timeline, but not using Frame animation. This option isn't in the bottom left or top right of the Timeline menu.

 

I have tried resetting my preferences, uninstalling and re-installing, creating a new document, and converting all layers to smart objects, and none of those have worked. I have a macbook pro with macOS Big Sur version 11.2.3 with an Apple M1 chip.

 

Thank you for the help!

Have you found a fix for this? Good to know it's not just me. Come on Adobe, pretty big feature here to just randomly omit from the new version that we PAY FOR.

I have used Photoshop to export short mp4 videos using the timeline function. Today I tried to export a video and I can only see an option to render an image sequence with no option to render a video.

 

I am running a Macbook Pro 2021 M1 13 inch. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂

Thanks again Chuck.  Find it was an M1 chip problem.  After staring in Rosetta all was well.

Hi there,

 

I recently update Photoshop to 22.3.1 and my render to video options are gone. Not grayed out but non existent. If I go to render image sequence there's no more option for video formats either.  Haven't seen a lot of posting about this so I'm wondering if there is something wrong on my end. I was able to resovle the issue by reverting back a few versions but it is a persistent issue with the most up to date version. It's annoying to have to revert everytime, I need to export a lot of frame animations to video for my job.

 

I'm running on a Macbook Pro M1 2020 Big Sur 11.2.3

 

If anyone has a fix for this or has had this issue before let me know!

 

Thanks

I notice in your screenshot that there is a "render image sequence" option (the last one in the menu), which is available in the Render Video window up to 22.3. Have you checked if by any chance this is now the default tool, with an option in that window to create video files?

It's probably because your laptio is running M1.

you have to download rosetta: (link removed by moderator)

Once downloaded, just open it so that it's installed and not in a zip file. 

Then finder > Applications > right click on Photoshop and press get info.

In that pop up, you'll see open with rosetta. Click the box and close the pop up. 

Now you can open photoshop and edit any video you want by just dragging it into photoshop

Hey! I had this same issue. I did a lot of googling to figure it out because I've never owned a Mac before.  Because you've got a new Mac, it all comes down to them switching to Apple Silicon Chips, and Adobe not up to speed.  Basically your Photoshop is running in universal mode (the faster Apple Chip mode) rather than Intel (the slower Intel chip mode, but gives you all your options).

 

So to solve you need to run Photoshop as Rosetta. I actually had to ask support how to do this. Exit Photoshop, go into your application folder and find Photoshops folder, right click on the Photoshop application in the folder, click on get info, in that there will be an option that says Run in Rosetta. Check that and then restart Photoshop, and you should have your render as a video button. It worked for me. It will run slower, but you can toggle back and forth between versions if you're doing something quick and don't need that button.  Here is a link and explains some of the things missing

Hallo zusammen,

Hi – das liegt wohl eher an deinem Dokument. Hab grad ein PSD mit x-Ebenen offen und mir wird Videozeitleiste erstellen angezeigt.

 

Noch etwas: Dies ist das internationale Community Forum – wenn du schnelle/gute Hilfe möchtest, bitte jeweils auf englisch schreiben, danke dir 🙂

Are you working on a Mac with M1? If so does working under Rosetta make a difference?

M1 seems to be the problem (though naturally one could argue the other way if one feels so inclined). 

Can you start Photoshop under Rosetta?

I am trying to import an image sequence into photoshop to do some rotoscoping. When I import the sequence, it automatically created a video group and puts the video as a layer within. However, the video will not play and is showing a red question mark icon ovr top of the film icon in the bottom right corner of the layer preview image. The error message is "Video layers are only available in Adobe Photoshop."

 

That's quite annoying considering I am using Adobe Photoshop (version 22.3.1) on my mac (2021 MacBook pro 13-inch, version 11.1 Big Sur).  Why is this error ocurring and what can I do to fix it? It is not an issue with the software being unable to locate the file since I directly opened it and have not touched it since.
