I am not able to select anything but "Create Frame Animation" in the Timeline. I am trying to create a Video Timeline, but not using Frame animation. This option isn't in the bottom left or top right of the Timeline menu.

 

I have tried resetting my preferences, uninstalling and re-installing, creating a new document, and converting all layers to smart objects, and none of those have worked. I have a macbook pro with macOS Big Sur version 11.2.3 with an Apple M1 chip.

 

Thank you for the help!

If you're on a new Apple M1 processor machine, video isn't current supported. It's coming in the future. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html Run in Rosetta until native support is available for video.

Yeah, same here. M1 machine, fully updated,  and for the record:

  • Files and Folder access change does not work
  • Moving mp4 file to Desktop does not work
  • Converting from MP4 to MP5 does not work 
  • There is not even an option to Add Video to Layer in ANY mode, let alone Motion Workspace

I actually want to use PS to make the GIFs, rather than an external website. So strange that such fundamental functionality is completely broken.

Same issue as the above. Tried a full reinstall of photoshop and tested on 2 M1 machines. Nothing to do on opening .mp4 or .mov files to make GIFs.

I recently made a  change to a new Macbook pro with the M1 chip. Upon opening up a project with a video, Photoshop said it needed to relink the video file. I attempted to do that and it gave me an error "Could not complete your request because the footage is not a recognized format." This is the same exact file that was used previously. I thought there may be an error with the video file or the smart layer. So i tried to import or open any video files both in the project and in a new project. When I try to import or open any video, in any project, it shows the video as not selectible at all.

Turns out the M1 version of photoshop does not yet support Export > Render Video

 

I had to install the previous Intel build of PS to get video export back.

Hi! I need to make a GIF using photoshop and a video but as it turns out, the "Import video frames to layers" option in the new photoshop update seems to be missing. Is this a bug? Or is there another way to import my video into photoshop at the moment?

 

I'm attaching what I can see when I select "File>Import".Screen Shot 2021-04-09 at 4.59.16 AM.png

 

Thank you!

I think it's because of the M1 chip. Photoshop recently become M1 native but not all features are working yet, and this I think is one of them.  Refer to this for more info Photoshop for Apple Silicon

 

I think for this to work you must force Photoshop to open with Rosetta. Later you can switch it back once you're done working with video.

I spent all day trying to fix the same problem...

I found the answer on Reddit and pasted it below. Worked like a charm!

Cheers

 

Hello, I was having the issue as well and I did some research. I found that what helped was going on Finder > Applications > Adobe PS > Right click on the Adobe PS app > Get info and under “general” you should see an option to check “Open using Rosetta.” Check it then restart PS and you should see the import video frames to layers option again 🙂

Have you found a fix for this? Good to know it's not just me. Come on Adobe, pretty big feature here to just randomly omit from the new version that we PAY FOR.

I have used Photoshop to export short mp4 videos using the timeline function. Today I tried to export a video and I can only see an option to render an image sequence with no option to render a video.

 

I am running a Macbook Pro 2021 M1 13 inch. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂

Hi there,

 

I recently update Photoshop to 22.3.1 and my render to video options are gone. Not grayed out but non existent. If I go to render image sequence there's no more option for video formats either.  Haven't seen a lot of posting about this so I'm wondering if there is something wrong on my end. I was able to resovle the issue by reverting back a few versions but it is a persistent issue with the most up to date version. It's annoying to have to revert everytime, I need to export a lot of frame animations to video for my job.

 

I'm running on a Macbook Pro M1 2020 Big Sur 11.2.3

 

If anyone has a fix for this or has had this issue before let me know!

 

Thanks

I notice in your screenshot that there is a "render image sequence" option (the last one in the menu), which is available in the Render Video window up to 22.3. Have you checked if by any chance this is now the default tool, with an option in that window to create video files?

It's probably because your laptio is running M1.

you have to download rosetta: (link removed by moderator)

Once downloaded, just open it so that it's installed and not in a zip file. 

Then finder > Applications > right click on Photoshop and press get info.

In that pop up, you'll see open with rosetta. Click the box and close the pop up. 

Now you can open photoshop and edit any video you want by just dragging it into photoshop
