I have some JPEGs I'm trying to auto-arrange in my project for a time lapse. Only problem is, is that for some reason they were labeled in descending numerical order. When I have AE auto-arrange them in my project, everything's backwards. Any idea how I can get AE to auto-arrange them the other way?

Thanks in advance.

Do you want to arrange them in the project panel, or in composition?
There is no way of arranging layers in project panel differently than in ascending alphabetical order.
In composition? Just select them in desired order and place in the comp. The layers will be placed in the comp in the order you select them.
I have one little question: Are there any missing frame numbers, or you have all numbers, but just not the right order? Why don't you import your sequence as sequence?
Import a sequence, place it in the comp and time reverse it.

Re-number the files in Bridge, then re-import them.
