Where is the Animation Panel in CS6? (I currently have the trial version, which is Extended.) It's not under the Window menu.
I belive you use the timeline to create animation. Here is a link to tutorial. http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tools-tips/create-animated-gif-from-video/
I don't want to create it from a video, but from a basic layered PS document, where each layer in turn is displayed. (Maybe my answer is in that document, though -- haven't read it yet.)
Found it! It's in the Timeline panel. Choose Frame Animation.
