My hope is to be able to convert the frame by frame animation in a given layer a
"back" to a "normal" motion tween animation.
I would have sworn that I had converted a timeline animetion to keyframes and then had it revert to the "normal" tween state in Flash as is possible in Photoshop.
This would not be "necessary" if I could determine if one can slectively add hieght to the top of the stage.
edited to add image.
my aim is to be able to "re-unite" these single frames in order to move them on the stage minus the grinding tedium of reconstructiong the path of the images they represent accurately.
If your last sentence(s) is a way of saying you want to be able to move all of the frames down (or somewhere) at once, there is a way of doing that. In the bottom of the timeline is a toolbar of sort with some double rectangle icons in it. The one with 2 dark rectangles allows you to move the objects of the entire timeline at once. Just select the icon and then all the frames/layers and mnove them.
If your last sentence is saying something else, you might need to explain it another way
