I rendered out of AE as still images for max quality. The FCP help section said "make a new sequence and drag the folder onto the insert button". Big problem is, each still image is taking up seconds a piece. I just want each still image to occupy 1 frame of the sequence. What am I doing wrong?

thx

FCP doesn't import image sequences. You use QT Pro to do this. It has the option.

In the Preference menu (alt Q), change stills duration to 1 frame, then import. Don't forget to change back to a few seconds or the next time you will generate a still it will only be 1 frame long.

Yes, Patrice, I know about that. Stills duration preference to 1 frame didn't help. Each loaded still was at least 10-15x long.

Hi just tried it here:

1) had a folder with tiff images named in sequencial order, imported that in FCP, after having changed the stills duration to 1 frame

2)cut some footage in a sequence (xdcam in this case)

3)inserted the tiff sequence by dragging the folder to canvas overlay

et voilĂ , each tiff frame is exactly one frame long.

I think there's still a bug with FCP X (10.0.8) - for one, no "frame" duration in the prefs so you need to import as a fraction of a second (what's up with that?) and even when you do it's 10 seconds. Unless I'm doing something completely wrong. I'd love to hear if this actually works and what I need to do to fix it.

thanks
