Well it has to actually be a sequence not just a collection of JPEGs. It's actually a bit easier to File>Open Image Sequence in QuickTime Player and then save as self-contained movie.

[Noah Kadner]Open Image Sequence in QuickTime Player and then save as self-contained movie ...

What! .... please tell me that Motion doesn't have issues with image sequences ...!!

I'm thinking about buying Studio 2 in the next few days.
But ... I need the combination of Motion and FCP to deal with
large image sequences (7000) frames. As many as eight of them at a time.

To convert to a quicktime movie first is unworkable.
The conversion time, drive space and additional step would severely hamper work flow.

I'm on the fence right now between updating to CS3 or getting Studio 2. I can't do both and I've been leaning towards Studio. But it's got to deal with image sequences "somewhere close to" as quick and painless as AfterEffects ...

Does it?

I don't need to do a lot with them, once I get them in the timeline.
Right now, I'm using a Trial of AfterEffects CS3 and it's dealing with the image sequences quite easily.
But I was looking forward to playing with the other goodies in Studio 2.

Is anyone using the FCP/Motion combination for compositing?

Thanks
