I'm using CS6.

Can someone tell me how to display all the controls of the timeline window ?

Here's what mine looks like:

All the demos / tutorials [show the timeline quite differently there:

Looks like there's a similar discussion over at the Adobe forums: Do I have to upgrade to Photoshop CS6 Extended to edit videos?. Not sure if any of that information is helpful, though. – JohnB May 24 '13 at 19:21

I think you want to toggle between frame animation and timeline. In the lower left-hand corner of the palette — next to where yours says "Forever" — is supposed to be a little icon which sort of looks like a bar chart with a triangle on top. Click that. It will convert to the palette shown in the demo.

Why yours doesn't have that I can't say. Try clicking around and see what it needs to activate it.

ETA I found it: in the palette options fly-out, four up from the bottom, select "Convert to video timeline."

Lauren, I really can't find any settings that make the icon you talk about appear. When you hover over the icon, is there a tool-tip that tells you what the icon is called ? – wotney Mar 8 '13 at 11:36
thanks for the update, but I can't see that option. I've uploaded an image so you can check that I'm looking in the place you described... My palette Options – wotney Mar 8 '13 at 13:42
@wotney You are in the right spot, but it's not there. You probably have something weird going on with that specific document. Create a new document and try it with that one. – Lauren Ipsum Mar 8 '13 at 16:51

I guess, you should have Photoshop extended so you can open all timeline features.

I'm not sure if this is accurate, do you have any source to back it up? – JohnB May 24 '13 at 19:15
