I have 2155 photos I'm trying to add to Premier Elements. They are in order 1-2155 but when Premier adds them it is out of order. For example photo #32 is moved directly after photo #320. Every # with a 0 at the end causes the same # without a zero to follow it...
I tried renaming them IMG_0001 but it became IMG_0001 (1)... and the same issue occured.
The last order it placed the clips in was:
then at 1019 it jumps to 102 then 1020...
Isn't that how Windows lists the photos, if sorted by name? I think Premiere just follows what Windows "gives".
No, windows has them listed chronolgically. I've tried renaming them 20 different ways... it still adds them in the same order. I don't want to individually move 2155 photos.
As long as all of the numbers have the same number of digits (zeroes in front those less than 4 digits long), they should be in the correct order.
In other words, instead of 1, 2, 3, 4 ... 2100, 2101, etc., number them as:
0001, 0002, 0003, 0004, etc.
