    When I import a layered image file, it gives me a choice of merged, individual layers, etc. The next image I import does not give me a choice. It does whatever option I selected with the first import. I've looked for a preference to set. This document doesn't tell me how to get a choice with each image imported.

    What version of PrPro?

     

    In your example, is the second (next) PSD also Layered, or has it perhaps been Flattened in PS?

     

    Good luck,

    Yes all the PSDs have several layers. I think with the first one, the layer I wanted was showing so I went with merge. The second one I wanted several of the layers and I got a merged one instead. I guess from your query that the behavior seems to be user error. I will respond again after more rigorous trials.

    I made a series of drawings in Illustrator CS6 that I want to animate in Premier Pro, but can't quite figure out how. Each drawing is on a separate artboard. I grouped each artboard's objects into its own layer and cropped to the size of the board.

    Do I need to stack the drawings on top of one another on the same artboard before saving?

    What type of file should I save it as?

    Best to use AE for animating Illustrator files as Premiere rasterizes on import with no layers as you would have if it were Photoshop files.

    You can leave the drawings in there own artboard.

    Save as ai.

    Thanks, Ann. So to be clear, I save the file as ai. Import into After Effects. Then import to Premier?

    Yes or after you animated the drawing you can use DL to get files from AE into Pro.

    When saving, should I check "save each artboard to a separate file"?  What about compression? (These are simple black line drawings that I want to show up on a white background.)

    DL = Adobe Dynamic Link, often seen as "ADL."

    Thanks Wine Snob. Did hunt, didn't find. I'm new, so please forgive questions that seem obvious.

    In reply to Conor - I believe the free image processing software "IrFanView" will convert images to add the filename to the image itself if that is what you are asking. Be sure to specify a different OUTPUT directory folder so as to not overwrite originals when batch processing.

     

    Thanks

    Thanks for feedback IrFanView is mainly for PC but I think I have found a way to create an APP for the MAc and I'll get back to you Cheers

    No problem. When one has been around the forums for a bit, they tend to abbreviate terms, and that can lead to confusion. Also, we have been known to banter about jargon, assuming that everyone has years of experience with the terms of PrPro. I make that mistake all too often, and forget to define some terms, the first time that I type them.

     

    Good luck,

    I might be incorrect in this, but think that there is a Ps Script, that will do what you want.

     

    I would ask in the Photoshop Forum: http://forums.adobe.com/community/photoshop

    and also in the Photoshop Scripting Forum: http://forums.adobe.com/community/photoshop/photoshop_scripting?view=d iscussions

     

    If my memory is not totally hosed, one of those should yield the Script (if it exists, as I claim to remember) for that task.

     

    Good luck,

    I ended up saving each artboard as a separate file and importing them to PrPro. It worked great. Then I made an additional segment in AE and added it on. I expected to be able to manipulate the AE comp in the timeline of PrPro, but couldn't. I spent some time looking for a solution without luck. Is there a way to import the AE file into PrPro as a series of clips so I can edit their length to fit with my audio? Thanks.

    Hello,

    I am new to Adobe Premiere (usually use FCP).  I am having problems importing still images.  Even though the images are all different and have unique names (I'm importing .jpg), every time I import the images they ALL convert to the same image when I drag them to my time line.  Then, when I look in the project area - no matter which image I click on, they are all the same (but with their original names).  Does anyone know WHY this happens and how I can fix it?  Thank you in advance from the noob.

    The Help is missing two steps.

     

    5. Click the "Image Sequence" checkbox at the bottom of the Import dialog box.

    6. Click the Open (Windows) or Import (Mac OS) button.

     

    The image sequence is imported into Premiere Pro as a clip.

     

    Hope this helps!

    Kevin
