Hi, I've been trying to create a batch processing test to put a still image on top of the GIF. Everytime I open a GIF file, it will directed to open as a new document, but when I try to copy the group of layers (GIF) to the project I've been trying to create, the timeline will not be copied, and it will copied as a still image with a lot of layers. Is there any way to copy the GIF to another project without removing the timeline?

Thank you for the help.

Short answer is No, things does not work as you expect if I can understand you correctly what are you trying to do. In new document you must create timeline and you can not simly copy animation frames and paste them in another document with result that animation frames will be created in Timeline.

Hi! Thank you for helping this, I've solved the problem of copying the frame timeline, but the thing is, there is a new problem. I've created the step-by-step, but I think there's a missing step between 5 and 6

  1. Create Motion Project
  2. Open PSD file of stacked .GIF
  3. Copy still image and paste it on the Motion Project
  4. Open Stacked GIF file while the top group of GIF layer already selected
  5. Making Selection (ctrl + A)
  6. Copy Frames on timeline
  7. Delete group layer
  8. Create Motion Project
  9. Open PSD file of stacked .GIF
  10. Copy still image and paste it on the Motion Project
  11. Open Stacked GIF file while the top group of GIF layer already selected
  12. Making Selection (ctrl + A) to the group layer
  13. Copy Frames on timeline
  14. Delete group layer

 

It keep showing an error "The Command Copy is Not Currently Available" (I put the screenshot on the attached file). But I can not solve what went missing.

Nope. As already pointed out, the logic is just the reverse. You would have to have a template PSD containing the animation and paste your other content on top of it, not the other way around.
