Time Lapse photos all appear the same - what's going on?

Hi folks,


This used to work for me, but for some reason, Premiere CS5 is now having problems.  I take a bunch of time lapse photos and add them to premiere.  I then select and drag them into the Video timeline, and change their duration.  This used to work.


Now, however, when I select the different photos or play the video in premiere, all the photos seem to be the same as the first photo.  Of course, I've checked and they're not the same.  This is happening with all my time lapse projects now.


Any ideas?

    I think you have come across a known quirk.

    Open, and re-save the image files in Photoshop.

    This will re-write the headers and Premiere won't

    have this problem when you import the files.


    If you have a lot of image files, I am sure there is a way to batch re-save

    in Ps, but I'm not a real Ps  user... someone else might advise.

    Thanks Joe.  If it's just the headers, I wonder if there's a quicker way than using photoshop?

    Ps is quick... I just don't know the batch procedure.

    Also, any idea if this is fixed in CS6?

    Not sure... I am running CS6 and have never had this problem.

    But, I never had this occur in CS5 either.



    I found this, but I've never done it:
