Hi there.

I'm having an issue with some JPEGS. The file extensions for the JPEGS are .jpg however they come as JPG sequences of all the JPEGs in the folder they're being sourced from. Have you got any ideas why this is and what can be done about it?

Would anybody like a peanut?

If I understand what you described correctly, it sounds like you just have the "import as" drop-down menu at the bottom of the import window set wrong ... change it to "footage" instead of sequence or project and you're good.

Do I get my peanut now?

I'll take half of Dave's peanut.

It's actually a checkbox. It says "JPEG Sequence". Uncheck it.

"To prevent After Effects from importing unwanted files when you want to import only a single file, or to prevent After Effects from interpreting multiple files as a sequence, deselect the Sequence option in the Import dialog box. After Effects remembers this setting and thereafter uses it as the default."
