I'm working with an AE template I got from Video Blocks. Its a slideshow basically. When I go to replace their images in the images folder with mine, it seems to only work the first slide or two and then it stops.
Here's what I mean...
Their Image is always titled "ImageBlock.jpg". I create my image to be the exact same size as theirs. When I "Replace Footage" > File > MyImage.jpg it gives me this in the project area: MyImage[2-10].jpg instead of MyImage.jpg In the timeline then, all I see is a blackscreen. Granted, I'm new to AE but usually pretty savy with this stuff! But for the life of me, can't figure out why the first one or two in a series of ten will work, and then the rest get replaced with nothingness.
Please. Help. My keyboard's life depends on it.
It might be easier to just rename your files to the file names in the template and replace the template's files with yours (in a copy of the template, of course).
I'd just forget about doing the way you're doing it. I'd import the stills I want, then Alt-Drag (Opt-drag Mac) the desired still onto its highlighted counterpart in the timeline. That'll replace 'em for sure.
