Photoshop Video layers problem - two frames act as one.

I am trying to create frame by frame animation using Timeline and Video layers, but depends on document's fps some two frames would act like one. When I draw something on one of them, same drawing appears on the other, if I delete one of these frames, photoshop deletes both and the problem remains for new frames.

The only thing I mange to do with this problem - is to cut the Video layer, shrink cutted part for that problematic "slave" frame and then stick them up together as a Video group and it becomes a MESS!

I'm working on a complex animation with 60~ frames and lots of layers, so i can not afford to have such a monstrosity in my project! Please help!

My Video Layers have the same fps as my projectПроблема с кадрами.gif

Check your layers palette. This happens when you mess up the layer order and states across frames.

Just tested, to me it happens when I create blank document, change fps from 30 to 16, and add one video layer: 4th and 5th frames already have this issue.

I've tried but so far I've not been able to replicate this issue here in CC2019 on Windows 10

So I'll be more sepcific: when I work with video layer after some point in time one becomes the copy of the other before it, and when I edit one of them all the changes appers on the other.

I've googled everything I could but didn't find anyone discussing this problem, noone have had same bug, guys?

I have the same problem. I'm running at 16 frames a second. The fourth and fifth frames merge.  I would wager that Photoshop is having problems with trying to fit 16 frames into one second for some reason. If I change the frame rate to 15 the duel frames at 4 and 5 become one again and everything is fine. For my purposes 15 fps is close enough for what I wanted. Although this is a definite bug in PS, I wouldn't expect a fix anytime soon.
