Ok, so here's the problem.

I got a folder with various (arround 12) different elements rendered out as .png sequences from 3D. This is only for ONE shot, and I've got 12 of these with an average of 1k frames (per shot).

Yeah, so far arround 144.000 images in total.


The only way I know of, with the normal import->select the image->check png sequence, I can only import ONE .png (or any image sequence)per time... so it turns out to be quite tedious.


If I import a folder, it wont recognize all the different .png sequences inside, and If I run the 'Smart Import' script, it only loads the first sequence in the folder.


Just to make the things a bit more complicated, I was prompted NOT to change the render location/output from the 3D or subdivide this MAIN folder into each of the different elements... since "it screws the 3D artist work-flow".


Does anyone have a life-savior script (since im about to die here)or a smarter way to do a "MULTIPLE IMAGE SEQUENCES IMPORT" that I do-NOT know of?

Ill tattoo your name on my chest if you can help me out!

Tyvm in advance.

Lloyd Alvarez's Immigration script might do what you need.

Tyvm, thats exactly what I needed.

Other than that I found another solution, its... simpler but well... not user friendly since it will crash your system over and over again until planets align and ... well you get the idea I guess.

Import
-Selected ALL of the images (arround 24k),
--Checked "multiple sequences/compositions"
---Took a deep breath and held it for 35 minutes on an 8gb computer.


Just a reminder, it only worked for me since I had all of the files in a single folder. The script you sent me just browses (L)


Hope you dont mind seeing your name on another man chest!

Happy to help! Let your tattoo artist know that my branding guidelines specify Trade Gothic for my primary typeface.
