Importing image sequence brackets??

May 27, 2011 7:53 AM

When I go and select a single image that's part of a sequence, and import it as such, I get it to show up with [ ] brackets around it. But when I go to select all images and import "multiple sequences, the brackets are { } type. I wouldn't care much but I find that when they are the { type that I can't update footage to add more of the images that are currently still rendering from my 3D program.

I'm not sure what those types of brackets mean and the only way I see of fixing in there is to "replace footage" and just select the single file and basically re-import as sequence. After that the brackets switch over to the [ ] ones.


Anybody know what this means or any input about it?

    Well, perhaps it indicates broken sequences, perhaps something else that started out as a good idea when AE was still young but has long been forgotten over all the years. In any case, it's probably not much to waste any second thought on...

    If you work with image sequences a lot, check out Lloyd Alverez' Immigration script. It's a huge time saver. And it intelligently recognizes and replaces image sequences.
