Photoshop Image sequence render issue

[a re-post as I didn't get an answer and now can post more specifically]

I have a series of 93 PNG files. I loaded them into Photoshop. Later I wanted to render them out. As shown, I chose the 24fps option, as that was the frame rate of the 93 files previously and what I need.

However, only 73 PNGs are output, not 93. Interestingly 73 / 93=80%, which also equals 24fps/30fps. Seems more than a coincidence.

I tried again with another series, and again, only 80% of the total number of PNGsscreen.jpg were output.

If I output using the Export Layers to Files (under Scripts) all PNGs are output. That process tho takes 45 minutes for 93 files.

Any idea why PS is not rendering all my layer/PNGs?

Thanks.

Hi there,

That does not sound right, as only 80% of the png's export, could you please try setting the frequency to 1 image per second and let us know how it goes?

Also, please let us know the version of Photoshop and operating system you're working on?

Regards,
Sahil

You don’t seem to have set a duration for the frames in the Timeline Panel – why?

You can change the duration of the frames by expanding this menu:

Try changing it to 1 image per second and let us know if it helps.

I set the duration to 0.0417 second per frame in order to get 24fps. Again, I get only 73 frames.

I'm using CS6 on Windows 10.

Thanks.

24fps should mean roughly 0.042sec duration per frame.

Did that. Same 73 frames are output, not 93.

Tried loading a video which was at 24fps.  105 frames. Rendered with proper duration. Result - 84 frames = 80% of original count.

Hopefully you can download it. It is at 24fps. When I render, 105 frames are changed to just 84 (80%). Seems something is making it 30fps. Not sure if when importing it to Photoshop a rate is set?

psd-files cannot be posted on this forum directly so you would have to use a file transfer service (dropbox or the like).

Mind you, there’s still no guarantee someone on the Forum could figure the issue out even with the file available.

Hope this works. There is nothing special about this file.

There is a solution to my problem. If I export the layers at 30fps, I get all the frames, even tho it's a 24fps file.

Unless there is some default setting I am missing, it's hard to believe this could be a bug with Photoshop, but I see nothing to say otherwise.

Thanks.

I am also having this issue and it is clear that many others (dare i say everyone?) who tries to render video from frames on photoshop encounters this exact problem, like me and all of them have exactly 80% missing. This is a huge impactful glitch that apparently still exists in 2021. This needs to be fixed, has anyone found a solution?

There is a work around solution to this until it get's fixed. set every frame to 1 sec(see below images)

framerate_help_1.png___ framerate_help_2.png

then when exporting as a png sequence, set the frame rate to 1

framerate_help_3.png
