Importing a Numbered Image Sequence into Final Cut Pro

You can import a numbered image sequence as a set of individual image files. This
gives you more flexibility because you have control over which files are imported and
which of those are then edited into your sequence.

To import image files from a numbered image sequence:


Choose Final Cut Pro > User Preferences, then click the Editing tab.


Set the Still/Freeze Duration value to one frame (00:00:00:01).


Open the project where you want to import the files.

For more information, see “

Opening and Closing Projects

” on page 34.


Import all the image files associated with the numbered image sequence you want to
use in your project.

For more information, see “

Importing Media Files

” on page 316.


Do one of the following:

 Choose File > New > Sequence.
 Control-click in the Browser, then choose New Sequence from the shortcut menu.


Double-click the new sequence to open it in the Timeline.
