Adobe killed the FLM (film strip) file format?

I was looking at the newest Adobe Photoshop software the other day and noticed that it does not seem to support the Adobe file format known as "FLM" or film strip. I guess Adobe only wants people to make video as video, (the ability to make video changes in the same way you can with a film strip isn't video enough I guess), and all the weirdness that the .flm format offered were just too non-commercial. Too bad. I'm glad I still have my obsolete software.

Once again this shows how the obsolete just has more options and abilities than then most recent, top-of-the-line pro software: afterall, the pro software is set-up so you can do things weird.
