Im not exactly sure what you are saying But what I did was moved the layer and saved each copy to a new file name, which allowed me to use only one copy of everything and continue working.
Example: Dr. Kim Evil gif.
- I first cut out Kim's face and may it layer
- Then, I made a duplicate of the same layer for each layer (frame) in the gif (or gif I intended to make)
- Next, I positioned each duplicate layer Above each layer I wanted it to be a part of (ie Kim's face over dr evils face)
- Then, I went to the very first layer (dr evil) and top layer (kims face) and made them visible. Then I clicked on the top layer (kim) and positioned the top layer where I wanted it to be on the bottom layer (dr evil).
- Then, I right clicked on the top layer (kim) and selected "Merge Down". This fused the two layers together and superimposed the top layer (Kim's face) over the bottom layer (dr. Evil).
Do this for each layer in the gif and then highlight all gifs then "Make frames from all layers". After, select timing and then "save as web". Afterward, in the word of idle, "hilarity ensues"
I'm assuming you're using photoshop. If not, I just wasted precious time I could have spent fapping to Sara jean. And if so, kudos on the troll job. I kid I kid
ETA: Just read you're make individual saves.... Try my way and it will cut your work by 80%. I'm sure there's an easier more efficient way than what I've suggested that the gifmasters can provide which would benefit me as well.
