I've created a hue/saturation level adjustment in Photoshop CS6.

enter image description here

Now I have a timeline with 2 frames. I want the second frame to have a different "Hue" value:

As I change the slider, the change is propagated to all the frames in the timeline. Is there any way to prevent this?

I'm assuming you want a sort of psychedelic effect, the hue keeps changing for the pattern. If so, I have a solution that would work for your use case.

  1. Create the layer you want to change the hue of (state 1).
  2. Duplicate and change the hue to the final hue you want (state 2).
  3. Now you have two layers, switch the second layer visibility off for the first animation frame (state 1), and switch it on for the last animation frame (state 2), and then tween the animation frames between these.
  4. If you want it to be a continuous loop, duplicate the first frame, move it to the end, and tween the frames between state 2 and state 1 again (ideally adding the same number of frames as you did last time for symmetry)

unfortunately, tweening won't create the same effect as moving the slider. If I tween from hue -180 to +180 the effect is completely different. I need to manually create each frame (from -180 to +180) which is insane. Thanks for your advice though! +1 –  Saturnix May 30 at 17:20

double checked why it doesn't work the same way: tweening on 2 layers visibility will just animate their opacity, not the hue. –  Saturnix May 30 at 17:22
    
Ah, okay. Sorry I just thought this might work. Sorry it wasn't what you're looking for. Do let us know if you find a solution though. :) –  Payod Panda Jun 3 at 10:56
    
yep, I've created a script that automatically creates 360 layers and a timeline switching their visibility... Would like to publish it, but it really sucks and serve just that purpose. –  Saturnix Jun 3 at 21:50
