Hey,

I'm currently trying to create a video for a colleague at work. We have image files that need to be animated at 30fps but when we bring them into Sony Vegas 10 they automatically have a length of 5 secs. How can I change that for all of the files?

Is there a setting I have to choose when starting a new file in Sony?

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light!

Happy Friday!

Kira

Go to Options, Editing and about half way down, you can change the default 5 seconds to what ever you want. .033 would make each image one frame. Hope this helps, Danny Hays

Kira, I realize that Danny correctly answered your question but it was the not the question you should be asking. ;-)

What you really want to know is how to bring an image sequence into Vegas and have it treated like video and it's not by adjusting the event length.

What you want to do is use File | Import | Media... and select just the first image (not all of them). Then at the bottom, check the box that says [x] Open still image sequence and press the Open button. On the next screen you will be able to tell Vegas that it should interpret the images as 30 fps. Note: the images should be numbered in sequence (e.g., xxx001.jpg, xxx002.jpg, xxx003.jpg, etc.)

I believe this will achieve the desired result you are looking for.

I'm curious as to what you will do with all those images. I didn't even know you could interpret the images like John said.

That's how you bring in time-lapse video from a still camera. I've been doing it since Vegas 5.

It's also a popular way to transfer CGI animation from a 3D program into Vegas (as a PNG image sequence with alpha channel). At 30fps a minute of animation is 1,800 images.

Thanks to Danny and John for your help! I did utilize John's method and it worked perfectly for what we were trying to accomplish, but am really glad to know the other rout as that will help with various projects. :)

As to how we're using the images - i work for an Architecture and Engineering firm and our architects design 3d models using BIM they like to create animations panning through the building and around the exterior for interviews, proposals etc. Your feedback really saved us as we were working on a deadline!

Thank you thank you!

Kira
