I have a Photoshop (PSD) file containing several artboards as well as a timeline animation. I would like to export the animation contained in one of those artboards as a PNG sequence. Ordinarily in a Photoshop file without artboards, I would just use the "File->Export->Render Video" command to render out the PNG sequence. But if I do that in my file with multiple artboards, it renders out all of the artboards, not just the artboard I have selected.

How can I get Photoshop to render a PNG sequence of only a single artboard? (I've already tried making the other artboards invisible, but Photoshop still renders out blank space where those artboards would be.)

  • I'm not familiar with rendering video from artboards, but since artboards are kind of a new thing, I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't possible...... Unless you remove all the other artboards and then render video. You may want to post this in the Photoshop feedback website. – Joonas Jan 11 '19 at 9:11
  • This answer is about exporting one artboard – spike_66 Jan 11 '19 at 9:17

just figured this out by accident.


When you export your animated artboard then timeline will be intact in the new file.
