I have created a few actions to add border and guide marks on images.
Depending on the border required, a different action button is used. Part of these actions are canvas size changes, image flips, etc.
Every time an action gets called, each of these steps (flips, canvas size changes) gets animated on screen. Is it possible to disable these animations and apply all the steps without visual progress from one step to the next?
I hope my description above doesn’t sound convoluted
It sounds to me like you have
Step by step selected in the action playback options and maybe
Allow tool recording, or perhaps both.
You need to go to the Actions panel and:
- Click the menu icon at the top right corner
Uncheck Allow Tool Recording
- Go to playback options… ( jump to the second image below this one ↓ )
Accelerated, if it’s not selected.
With these settings the actions run as fast as they possibly can.
I forgot to mention that if you have recorded an action that uses full step by step animation recorded by
Allow tool recording, just disabling this option is not enough. You’d need to remake that part of the action with it disabled.
