Final Cut Pro Quick Tip #19Importing image sequences
To demonstrate this, Ill use an image sequence rendered out of Adobe After Effects. This animation is a variation of the 2 ½ D exercise I wrote earlier this week mixed with some David Nagel flair.
The first method requires you to make a change in your Final Cut Pro Preferences. Under the General Tab, you will notice that by default Final Cut Pro 3 sets the default time for an imported image to 10 seconds. It does this so you have a large enough clip to work with. If you change the Still Frame Duration to 1 frame (highlight the time range and just type 1), any new image you import will only be one frame long.
Next import your numbered image sequence into your Final Cut Pro bin and highlight all of the images in order.
Now just add the selected files to the Timeline. Because your image sequence is numbered sequentially, you are essentially creating a long series of single frame edits.
Following your successful (and easy) import and edit method, you will need to render the sequence.
