I'm fairly new to making stop motion animations in photoshop, and I haven't run into any issues up until needing to export my animation. I have a 2021 Macbook Pro, and have the latest update of the 2021 Photoshop.
When I press play, the animation runs perfectly; there are no issues with it, atleast it seems like it. I have my Workspace set to "Motion," but when I try to export my animation, I can't export it as a GIF or video.
I selected the option "Optimize Animation" and also "Flatten Frames Into Layers" since I read that I need to do that before exporting it, but when I try to follow the next step I can't find the option "Render Video" when I go to export it. The closest thing to "Render Video" is "Render Image Sequence" which I tried, but it ended up just exporting 60+ JPEG's to my computer even though there are only 29 frames in my animation. There is also no option to convert the animation to a video sequence when I go into the Timeline bar.
I've been running into a ton of issues recently like this where no matter how many videos I watch to try and solve the problem, it seems like I'm the only one who's run into the issue. I don't even have the options for "Render Video" or converting it to a video sequence.
If anyone can help me solve this you would be a life saver!
