I'm trying to make an animated gif.
I've tried several ways, but with no results.
If I drag the .mov file to the CS5 app, I get the message: "Could not complete your request because Photoshopdoes not recognize this type of file."
If I try to open from CS5, it does not "see" it as a readable file it can open.
If I try to open from Bridge, it does not list CS5 as an app that will open it.
Using 10.7.4, 2x2.66 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon, with 27GB of DDR3.
Repaired permissions prior to all this.
Any ideas out there?
I discovered that I had to have CS5 open in 32 bit, instead of 64 bit. Only then would it open the file, and only by importing it this way: Import>Video Frames to Layers... It seems as thought Adobe has changed some things, as it used to be possible to open the file directly by loading it into PS. Also, the Animation window no longer has the "Timeline" tab. Not sure what that change was about, but it would be nice to have it. Regardless, I was able to open the file and get to work. Finally. Whew!
