Importing Photoshop Sequence Into AE
on May 14, 2010 at 2:33:33 am

Hello,
I'm trying to do Eran's tutorial on flower morphing:
http://library.creativecow.net/articles/stern_eran/Simple_Morph.php
When I import the sequence into AE I just get the first flower picture and none of the others and it's exactly 1 frame long only. The only thing I did different is in Photoshop, I didn't duplicate the first layer and make it as the last layer. I'm using AE CS4.
Can someone suggest what I might be doing wrong?
Thanks!
Jim

Are the files for the image sequence numbered sequentially at the end of the filename, and are they all in the same folder?

Hello thanks for responding.
I'm actually using 100 pictures so yes there named 001-100. They are all in the same folder. I watched that little segment of the video to double check all the AE import settings 3-4 times and it looks like I'm doing it exactly the way he did it. I still only get pic #1 and it's 1 frame long. I even tried holding shift key and selecting them all even though that's not how he did it. Only thing different maybe is he's using CS3 I think?

What exactly is the naming convention for your files? Are you sure there's no subtle difference between the file names, like Image(space)(space)001.psd and Image(space)002.psd? You might also try checking the force alphabetical order button on the image sequence import.

Hi,
The program i used to output the files names them like this: temp.001.bmp temp.002.bmp and so forth so there all in neumerical sequence.

Ok that's pretty weird. I dont' really need the transparancy componant for what I'm doing so I tried NOT running through the photoshop script and it worked. It must be somthing about the way photoshop is naming them. I'll have to run it through the script and read the naming convention more closley.
