>How do you easily create an "ordered list" of the pictures and then import
I always leave that task to my clients, having them sort the pictures and write the order number on the back before they send them to me.
I've never used storyboards in previous versions, but according to the help all of those features are there in CS3 from the Project panel.
From the help...
"Note: In earlier versions of Adobe Premiere, storyboards were stored in files independent of project files. Adobe Premiere Pro contains all storyboard features within the Project panel, but, on Windows only, you can import storyboard files created in earlier versions by choosing File > Import."
Yeah, it's usually better to have the client arrange their photographs (especially if chronology is important, since a 2 year old Juan looks the same to you as a 4 year old Juan in many cases).
But...too late now. Most clients, after paying a deposit, don't like changing the terms of the agreement. Good luck!
I gave up using Premiere for multiple stills. It just isn't suited for it. I used to use the project panel and sort things around there but for me, the thumbnails don't refresh fast enough and the images are never cached anywhere to speed this up.
I know you're looking to use PPro for this (and it still can be) but I'd really suggest saving some headaches.
I use Proshow Producer now:
It's kind of pricey but it's worth it if you do a lot of this stuff.
Have you thought about ordering the files by numbering a field other than the filename? You can then sort on this field by clicking on the column header.
