10 smart objects one for each frame in a 10 frame animation. Each frame is 1 second and I want to export each frame as a separate file (tried PNG, JPG, TGA and PSD). Export settings are set at 1 frame rate per second to get 10 images.

Each time I render the image sequence it only shows the first frame for each image saved out.

Hi Everyone, Thank you for making us aware of this issue. The workaround is to go to Preferences > Performance > and then check Enable Legacy Compositing. This issue will be resolved in the next update to Photoshop. We will update this thread when that update becomes available. Thank you, Hannah

Can confirm this same issue on PC and Mac, photoshop image sequence rendering only 1 frame over and over. 

Switched back to CC2018- no issue there.

Confirmed after re-installing v 19.1.6 and performing the exact same operation.

The render process still produces the correct number of frames, so it recognizes how many frames need to be produced based on the timeline, but the frames being produced all look exactly the same regardless of the contents of the timeline.

We are working on a fix. In the meantime, here is a workaround:
Preferences > Performance : turn on "Legacy Compositing". Restart Photoshop.

I have a problem when trying to render a video in to image seqence. I have followed many tuttorials, select video>file>export>render video>change "adobe media encoder" to "photo image Sequence", Change format and select range>render. This then takes 564 frames which is in the video in to images, hoping that it would be an image sequence of the video however every time I try to do it all it does is produce the first frame, 564 times, can anyone tell me where i am going wrong or tell me how i can turn a video into frame by frame photos? Thank You

Please get rid of the BLACK BACKGROUND when rendering a png sequence, I did your work around, but it didn't work, my transparent backgrounds in my PNG sequence were all changed to solid black 😞

Using the 'Straight - Unmatted' Alpha channel setting worked for me.

that is a work around, though.  A superior solution is that a PNG sequence with transparency in the file itself should be rendered as such

Trying to render out video sequence (original Prores 4444 LogC). Latest CC version 20.0.0 release. Exporting video using Photoshop image sequence option results still frames (Tif, Png, Psd)! Cannot use Media Encoder Quicktime options (8-bit depth) - seriously, still no Prores?! Why Dpx sequence option has only fixed preset sizes!!! I need to render out UHD 2:1 aspect ratio.
I just painted about two hours over video clip in 16-bit mode. Lucky I did a test render in the mid clip before finishing this in 4 to 5 hours. Can't save or render out. Expensive hours lost.

... Next probably saving frame by frame. If video export options keep lacking any development year after year, Affinity, here we come.

Is it just my luck, or has anybody else experienced this problem?

Jari,

There is a potential workaround for you, although this is not officially supported. I infer you are a video pro and have Adobe Media Encoder. You can create a DPX preset in Adobe Media Encoder and add it to the Photoshop Presets/Video/Adobe Media Encoder/DPX folder, and restart Photoshop. The preset should not have any "match source" features, so you will need to create it with a specific frame rate and dimensions.

Apologies for my harsh(ish) comment. When your tools fail you in the middle of an important project it can get pretty frustrating. 
Thanks for the answer and tips. I will try these.

Regards
Jari

Jari,

I noticed you are working in 16-bit mode. The workaround I suggested may not be what you want, because Photoshop exports video to Adobe Media Encoder as 8-bit, even for the DPX presets. Even though the resulting DPX files may have a higher bit depth, there is this 8-bit conversion in between.

Another alternative is to change your Photoshop document depth to 32 before rendering to video, and using the Photoshop Image Sequence method. OpenEXR is available as a format there. After the export, you can undo the change to 32-bit to perfectly preserve your original 16-bit paint edits (although converting from 32-bit to 16-bit is probably not very lossy).
