I'm trying to import a short (6 frame) looping Photoshop animation into After Effects. GIFs don't support alpha channels, plus it looks terrible. No matter what I try, I end up with one frame. Can anyone help me out with this?

Does photoshop not have a quicktime or tif sequence export? Am on the train right now so can't check. Alternatively, as it's only 6 frames, why don't you just save each frame separately and name them accordingly so ae will see them as a sequence?

Ah yeah, that worked wonderfully. Export>Render Video, and I exported the frames as separate PSDs. AE was able to open the sequence as footage. I'm surprised that it's not automatic when opening a PSD with animation. Thanks for the help!
