The Adobe After Effects CC feature Composition -> Save Frame As -> Photoshop Layers does exactly what I want. However, it is very time consuming to do this for each frame (I am animating a game character in Adobe After Effects, and then using the .psd files to create a sprite sheet).

Is there any way (perhaps a script) that can repeat this action for each frame, automatically numbering them, so it's one-click to export the entire sequence?

  1. Drag the composition into your Render Queue
  2. Click on Output Module
  3. From the first dropdown, select Photoshop Sequence
  4. Render!

In After Effects (or media encoder) you can select PNG sequence as a format option.
