Is there a new (non-legacy) way to export an animated GIF?

I’ve always known that you can use File > Export > Safe for Web to export an animated GIF in Photoshop. However, in my current version, it says Legacy next to that option, which seems to imply that there’s a new and improved, non-legacy way to export animated GIFs.

Is there one? What is it?

Answer

It largely depends on what your goal is. The “new and improved” method is okay for high end gif animations. If you’re doing say an old school animated gif banner (sadly these do still exist) then I would just use Legacy.

The new method would be to use Photoshop’s Render Video functionality and then Adobe Media Encoder to convert it to an animated .gif which will give you much more control:
