I'm using Illustrator CS4 to make still images like backgrounds and other stuff for my videos. I export them as JPG using the "Use artboard" export option in Illustrator and select "All" so all the artboards export at once.
I end up in this case two differents backgrounds named "image clip-01.jpg" and "image clip-02.jpg".
When I import them into Premiere, I can see my two differents images in the Project and Source Panel, but if I drag them into my sequence, those two images become the same. I mean the image number 01 looks like the image number 02. So even if I have two different images with two differents names, the first one preview is not showing in the sequence. I'v double check , re-exporting etc, same thing. Rename the files. Same thing.
The only way I can have my images to properly show is when I export them one by one in Illustrator. It's ok for two images, but when I have several of them, it's pretty annoying.
Any ideas how to fix that?
What happens if you Open those JPEG's in Photoshop, then just Save them, and Import. Do they now show the proper Image?
Are you using PrPro CS 5, or 5.5? There was a Bug in CS 5, where Still Images did not show correctly, and the little trip through Photoshop solved the issue. I believe that CS 5.5 fixed that.
