This question, Photoshop CC converting image layers to video clip, was nominated to be closed as off topic because it is about video. The issue addressed has absolutely no application to the capture of still images. Yet we have other questions about time lapse videos that are not closed as off topic.
Shortly after the above question was asked, this question, When not to make a video from a timelapse series?, seemed to make reference in the body of that question to the question above and the fact that another user thought it should be closed.
Why was this question considered off topic?
It seems to me that this question is different from the suggested duplicate because it places it in the context of a specific "time lapse" question where the issue encountered has no real application to still photography. The other question is in the context of a question that does have implications for still photography as well.
