Location: In Maya world, where all is 3D and everything crashes
usually to import something to make an avvy from it I use virtual dub, open the video with it and then export the frames as png files into a folder
that is what I use to import video frames to photoshop
from the adobe help website:
Open or import a video file (Photoshop Extended)
In Photoshop Extended, you can open a video file directly or add video to an open document. When you import video, the image frames are referenced in a video layer.
1. Do one of the following:
To open a video file directly, choose File > Open.
To import video into an open document, choose Layer > Video Layers > New Video Layer From File.
2. In the Open dialog box, for Files Of Type (Windows) or Enable (Mac OS), choose either All Readable Documents or QuickTime Movie.
3. Select a video file and then click Open.
You can also open video directly from Bridge: select a video file and then choose File > Open With > Adobe Photoshop CS4.
you could also check the "how to make gifs" page on the forums in the fancreation section
