    Still Images as Image Sequence - XML Import

    mikkelf3580674

      Hi.

      I'm trying to make life a bit easier by generating an XML file to quickly import a number of image sequences into a Premiere Pro project (PPro 2017.0.2 in case it matters).

       

      It almost works - but when I import this XML file into premiere, it imports the first file in the sequence as a Still Image rather than an image sequence.

      The path to the file is correct, and the first frame does show up just fine.

       

      It feels like it's only a small change that's required, but I have not been able to find any information on it anywhere.

       

      Xml download 

       

      Since the (sample) XML is very short, I also included it here (the real file has a few hundred clips, they all behave the same way).

       

      I tried manually importing an image sequence into premiere and exporting the result as FinalCut XML, but if I re-import that file, it also gets imported as a Still Image, so no help there.
