I have a 20 second animation brought in from After Effects as a jpeg sequence. When I import it, it makes a video timeline, but I need to delete individual repeat frames so I can add a delay to reduce the size of the finished animated GIF. But when I convert from video timeline to frame timeline only one frame results.

How can I get an old-school frame layout for my imported animation?

Eventually discovered this solution, hope it helps somebody:

  • timeline > convert frames > flatten frames into clips
  • timeline > convert frames > make frames from clips
  • delete video group at bottom (to leave multiple layers)
  • convert to frame animation
  • Perfect solution. Should be the accepted answer. Worked in Photoshop CC 2017.
