I have a 90 frame gif and if I file-import-videoframes-to-layers it will make 30 layers and the .gif will end up flashing too much.

Any ideas?

    why are you importing the gif as a video rather than merely opening it? (I realize due to Adobe crippling, this was needed for some Photoshop versions). Version of Photoshop, standard or extended?

Simply open the gif image rather than importing it as a video.

There was an issue with Photoshop CS3 which required the user to import an animated gif as a video, however that issue has been addressed by Adobe since the release of the Creative Suite 4.
