Yes, this happened to me it.
Actually I found out that importing videos to PS is not the best way to make an animation (it takes up a lot of space and the quality of the animation can be quite bad...and as you can see not all videos work!).

I take screencaps with GOM-Player and then put them together in PS to become an animation.
It's much quicker and the outturn is better too.

i can't do that at the moment - can you look at my other post before this one, i'm also having a problem getting the screencaptures to come up.

I read your other post...

Just a questions: What PS are you working with? I work with PS CS5.

If you want I can write a quick tutorial for you how to make animations with screencaps. It's really simple.
Just let me know!! ^.^

Sure! ^.^
I have included a few pictures, because I work with a German PS and don't know the specific names of all the tools in English. So I hope the pictures will be a help for you.

1. Open GOM-Player (or any other player you can cut screncaps with) and cut screencaps from the scene you want to turn into an animation.

2. Make sure that all of the screencaps are in the same folder. This is important or otherwise PS will not find them.

3. Open PS and choose "Search in Bridge" (found under "Data") [pic 1 - http://img577.imageshack.us/img577/8388/ps1i.jpg ]

4. A new window will open up. Now just go to the folder in which you have collected the screencaps you cut earlier.

5. Choose "Tool" --> "Photoshop" --> "Load files in Photoshop" [pic 2 - http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/3353/ps2wv.jpg ]

6. Photoshop will now automatically open the screencaps in a new window.

7. Choose "Window" --> "Animation" and the "Animation tool" will open [pic 3 - http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/1238/ps3a.jpg ]

8. Click [ pic 4 - http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/1907/ps4zg.jpg ] to get the frame bar.
At the end of the frame bar there is a symbol Click on it and choose "Compile frames from layers". [pic 5 - http://img585.imageshack.us/img585/535/ps6k.jpg ]

9. In the beginning all your screencaps were on one layer. Now each one has a different one. Choose "Select all frames" and "Turn frames around". [pic 6 - http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/3120/ps7x.jpg ]

10. And that's it. Now you can play around with the animation time and add colouring or textures.
You can also resize the animation if it's too big.

You save the animation by going to "data" --> "Save for..." [pic 7 - http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/5802/ps8q.jpg ]

I hope that was easy enough to understand.
If you still have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me! ^.^

Re: Tutorial
Mhm, that's strange. I never got this message before!

Are you sure that your PS is installed correctly, because it seems that you get an awful lot of error messages?

Re: Tutorial
I always get these kind of problems!

Re: Tutorial
Then maybe try deinstalling PS and install it new again! I don't think it's normal that you get so many error messages.

this is a question that has been asked and answered many, many times in the past. if you check the tag for animated gifs and/or the comm memories, you'll find those posts.

That happens to me when I load a video that is too big (something like an episode of something as opposed to a music video). I now just make .gifs from screengrabs now, far easier

Normally that means the clip isn't in the right format. Usually I convert it to .mov and it works fine.

i converted the video to mov.

i don't think there is an answer to this problem.
