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.

So I have Photoshop 2022, version 23.0.0. on my Apple MacBook Pro.

This is updated by Creative Cloud. 

Normally when I didn't have the option to export my frames as a video, I could run Photoshop in Rosetta to fix that. I don't. have that option anymore, or at least not where I was supossed to do that. 

How can I export my frames as a video so I can make a stop motion?

Thank you! So it still needs to be started with Rosetta. Now I have to find out how, since the old way doesn't work anymore. Or have patience until Adobe have fixed it 😉

"Import, Export, and playback of embedded video layers" is still not available in native mode.

 

It looks like you've chosen the folder of Photoshop in that first screenshot. You need to open the info window for Photoshop's actual app file.

hello, I can no longer work on an animation project that I had started on photoshop in its 2020 version.
When I go back to my file, the videos are marked with a question mark, they are no more than still images and it is impossible to launch the video.
I know Photoshop is not animation software but I was using it for good reasons ...

Can anyone tell me why I can't work on videos with photoshop?

Hey there, 

 

every time i try to upload a video into photoshop it shows a pop up window, that Photoshop doensn't know the type of data that I am trying to upload. I tried multiple different types of videos (.mov and .mp4) some that I rendered in Illustrator, some from different platforms and the problem occurs every time. I can play the videos in Quicktime player and Vlc player though. I also have Rosetta installed, since I am using a mac with a M1 Chip and checked all the checkmarks in Privacy, since I read this in another post on here. 

 

I really have no Idea what else to try hopefully someone on here can help me!

You say you have Rosetta installed, but have you opened Photoshop using Rosetta?

Since it didn't open up automatically when I opened Photoshop I installed it through the Terminal. Shouldn't it work automatically then? Or do I have to do something else? 

 

I typed in  : softwareupdate --install-rosetta 

And it said that it installed successfully.

 

Thank you for your Help!

See the description in the link I provided on how to open the app in Rosetta. Photoshop can open in either mode so must be set to use Rosetta.

Hi, you need to open in Rosetta mode, it is built in the OS, you need to right-click the Ps icon in your applications folder.

It's been a year now and no fix!!! We use this tool daily for work. We need the video timeline and the render video fixed. Don't post about how to do it with intel based or downgrade your version I already know that. Adobe needs to fix the issue
