Import Stills as single frames ?
on Nov 19, 2012 at 3:43:58 am

Still picking up Avid...

Seems the duration option to import stills is in seconds in the Import Settings Dialogue box? Hope that's wrong. Am I missing something?

I'd like to bring in a couple hundred photographs at one or two frames (per second). How can I do this? Or apply this duration to all my images?

Thank you kindly!

the only way I know of to do what you want:

1. import your stills to it's own bin (forget the duration)
2. go into Script View
3. select all the clips
4. mark an in point
5. go forward 1 or 2 frames... mark an out point

Now all of your stills should have the same duration (which ever you chose (1 frame or 2 frames). Edit them into a sequence... done!

Hm. I can't seem to do steps 4 and 5.

4. mark an in point
5. go forward 1 or 2 frames... mark an out point

After selecting all the clips in step 3, what should I do? Don't the clips have to be loaded somewhere? While the clips are still in their bin, the In and Out keys don't seem to do anything, and the arrow keys just make that Apple/Mac error sound.

Am i doing something wrong?

Thanks.

sorry... I should have been a bit more clear.

I'm on PC and use the number keys which default to:

1 - ten frames back
2 - ten frames forward
3 - one frame back
4 - one frame forward

It helps if you have the mark in & mark out columns visible so you can see your I/O points are registering.

It worked! Thank you so much. And I can watch it back on a low playback setting compared to doing this in AE where I'd have to keep rendering.

Thanks for being specific!
