yes. but before you do, make sure you change the preferences so that new media put on the timeline only get 1 frame and that there is no crossfade time. Then you can literally select them all and drag and drop them on the timeline.

I used that approach as well as the "speed it up, render out uncompressed, reimport, speed it up again" to make this video of clouds in a thunderstorm in Boise. I left in some audio in strategic places as well as added a little punch to the blue sky. But other than that, it only took me a few hours to do. Source footage was over an hour.

Marcus, whenever I'm importing a large number of images, I prefer to use the still image sequence option.
Make sure all your images are properly sequentially numbered and in the same folder.
Click Import, browse to the folder, click on the first image and then click "Open still image sequence" box at the bottom of this window.
To the right of this box you'll see a range box that should show you the correct number range.
Click Open and adjust any necessary parameters in the box that comes up.
Click OK when you're done and the sequence is added to Project Media as a completed file that, when added to the timeline, will play from start to end.

I prefer to use PNG images as it's a lossless format and, if I need to do any corrections to it in Photoshop, it won't degrade in quality.

Marcus, I do it the way I mentioned whenever I get an animation that I need to turn into a video clip.
I find that it's very quick and easy.

I ve rendered it:it appears slow even if i put 300% envelope and i streched hitting ctrl and dragged to left at the end of the clip.Maybe i should rerender in HDV 1080 50i (with the double of velocity)?Will i get loss of quality?

thx

Hello,

I have a problem with the image sequence script: how do I get the pictures to be in 720p (1280x720) resolution rather than in the default (640x480) one?

Thanks for your patience.

Cheers,
Luka
