Save as "ORIGINAL" and not "OPTIMIZED"

Alright, I'm so angry right now.
I have made some animated stars in After Effects using particular plugin. This is how it looks

NOW I want to make this to a transparent GIF animation.
Doing this from After Effects seems to fail, and what I read on internet I can do this in PhotoShop.

I export the animated stars to Quicktime with PNG, so it turns transparent. Then I import it into PhotoShop where it makes layers and animation for it.

Problem is the saving. It works great if I save it WITH a background. But if I do WITHOUT a background, it does not work!

I only seem to be able to save the "optimizer" window, that tries to optimize it to my document. So when I don't have a background it doesn't care about my smooth image, it becomes sharp and looks total ugly.

Here's a screenshot at the optimizer window. Look at the size! 7kb. The stars being sharp and no smoothness.

Here's what the original is, just what I want but PhotoShop not seem to allow me to save in it...

You see, 87kb in size.
Same settings for both.
And yeah, I know it doesn't work to see much in the screen there because it's white stars and the transparent is kind of white and grey.

Here's also screenshot of both of them on same image

Check this one out, I added black background

BUT, problem is I don't want any background, it has to be transparent.

Here I also add a black matte to it, but still I need it to transparent

ANY SOLUTIONS!? How can photoshop make not this possible to save the original GIF? Or am I wrong, is there some way? some secret gate that Photoshop is hiding?

Hmm seems like I can't edit my post.
Anyway, I made an example here of the problem. The first is what comes up when I choose no background, not smooth at all.
The second is when I have a black background, smooth and great BUT a black background which I do not want!
