Hi All...

I have a couple questions about importing images into Motion 5:

1- Is there any way to set the default length for an image when imported?

2- Is it possible to import a set of images so they are one after the other in the timeline instead of all layered on top of each other with their length the length of the project?

1. Yeah you can set a custom import duration. Go to prefs>project

Then set the default layer duration.



2. I don't know of any editor that can do that.

Ahhh... thanks, that works for the image length. I saw layer length and did not think of it for images... much appreciated.

As for #2, FCP X you drag a group of images to the timeline and they are all in a linear sequence with each as long as the default setting. It is very easy.

If the images are numbered sequentially, i.e, pict0001, pict002, etc., then you tell Motion to view them all as a single movie file by clicking the Show Image Sequences as Collapsed button at the bottom of the File Browser. You can then import this file like any other movie and it will play one image per frame.

Thanks for the reply...

There is not much control over the way they play... no transitions etc... I suppose if the images are actually the frames of a movie that makes sense... anyway, appreciate your reply...

As far as "how the play" in n Image Sequence File, try in Properties/Timing/Frame Bending, changing that setting to Optical Flow. You're in for some fun.

Mark Spencer has an excellent tutorial here on Morphing:
