Time lapse from still images in Premiere Pro
on Jan 29, 2010 at 9:30:13 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm been searching all over for some help with the above.

I've basically taken about 1000 images on my DSLR camera and am trying to create a time lapse video with Premiere.

Unfortunately I have zero experience with it and have fallen at the first hurdle.

I can import my photos but can't change the duration of all pics at once. They are defaulting to 6 seconds.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Sam.

Hi Sam,

If you want each pic to be 1 frame in duration, you can import the stills as an image sequence. Go to the Import requester, select just the FIRST still (assuming they are numbered sequentially), and then at the bottom of the requester, check the box for "still sequence" (says something like that) and then hit OK and all the stills will be brought in as one single clip.

I suppose you could then add some slow-motion if you want it to run longer, haven't tried that myself.

Awesome, worked like a charm. Initially I imported the files as separate images and copy and pasted attributes to resize. Having it all as one video file that I can easily zoom in or out of is handy.

Hi Jeff

Any ideas what to do if the images aren't sequential?

Hi Dave,

if the files are not numbered sequentially I would just rename them (so making them sequential).

I realize this is answered quite a few months afterwards, but it MAY help the next person who stumbles across this thread.

I'm creating a time-lapse for a 2-YEAR project - I'm snapping 14,000 DSLR images a month and needed something to do just that; 'rename/renumber' image files for processing my timelapse.

There is a product called 'Siren' and it's free! (Don't know why/where they came up with that name, none-the-less, it's working out flawlessly!)

It actually looks at the image(s) meta-data and will rearrange ALL the images into proper-order by 'date/time taken.' One quick swoop then does it rename those files to file names appropriately. (i.e. My-project-image-001.jpg, MY-project-image0002.jpg, on down the entire list of 14,000 images.)

hi Bill,
I did chance upon this page trying to do exactly that, creating a story with a bunch of photos. Thanks for posting the tip about Siren, I am unable to find it though.. would you have a link for download?

Thanks

other good programs I've been using are:
File Renamer Basic (free, lots of options)
Novalapse (webcam timelapse v0.03) - very simple, takes pics regularly
And, MakeAVI-0.11 -turn your pics into an avi quickly (only upto 1090 pics)

Re: renaming files, as this thread is about using adobe Premiere, I'll go out on a limb and assume every one is using some version of creative suite which includes Bridge. Bridge has a built in tool for file naming. I'd use that.

I go for the Bridge, but even renaming in Explorer is a piece of cake.
