I have PSD (CS4) with over 200 layers I need to export each as jpeg to bring into iMovie (don't ask) to make a slideshow with funky transitions.

I can't find a way to export multi layers from photoshop and I thought I'd import into AE, make them all one second in duration in one timeline, and now I can't figure out how to export multi points in the timeline. I thought I did this ears ago in AE. IS this possible in AE?

Any other easy way to do this without exporting EACH layer individually from PS?

I use this script to do what your talking about

Set it to "layer in and out points" and it will render every selected layer in a composition to it's own file. You will need to set up a render template first so that the script can access your jpeg render settings.

Always more than one way to skin a cat:
Select all of your layers and trim them to be one frame long. (Move the CTI one frame forward and press atl+] to trim)
Sequence your layers using the handy Sequence layers keyframe assistant
Then render your composition as a JPEG sequence.

Well I´m not a big fan of skining cats but here goes another way.

This time inside photoshop.

Open your documents and go to:

FILE>Scripts>Export Layers as Files

And there you go.
