Why does my Photoshop CS6 timeline have a different layout?


I'm doing a tutorial, and I noticed my timeline is quite different from the one in the video:

This is mine:

This is the tutorial's:

The first problem is that I can't find the Add Videos button in my timeline.

The second is that when I import videos from the top bar File, the videos become layers instead of whole videos.

I hope someone can tell me what's wrong with my Photoshop!

The top image is a Frame animation.

The bottom image is a Timeline animation.

To switch between frame and timeline, click the menu on the Timeline Panel and choose the other option...

You can also choose whether you want a frame or timeline animation before creating the animation:

In order to create video timelines you MUST have the "Extended" version of Photoshop. The standard version does not offer the video timeline features.
