Before v 8.4:

When you export an animation to an Email or to the Animation Desk Folder, select “PSD”.  Each frame in your sequence will become a layer in this PSD file.


1. On the page of all project, find the project you want and tap "export."

2. Choose "Animation Desk Document," or "Email" as the destination. 

3. Select to export your project as PSD.  

4. Set up the format.

The frames in your project will be exported as PSD layers. You can choose the number of layers that you want to have in each PSD file.

For example, if there are 300 frames in your Animation Desk project, and you choose to pack up 100 layers per PSD file. You will get 3 PSD files, each of them contains 100 layers, which are the frames in your project.  



The result looks like this in Photoshop

You can find the converted files in your Animation Desk Folder
