    HELP!! HOW TO IMPORT GOPRO TIMELAPSE: AVID 7

    Hey there.

     

    I'm Just starting out using avid.  So I'm very new to the whole program.  So speak to me like I'm a small child.  I'm trying to import about 500 HD GoPro photos to make a timlapse on Avid.  The individual files a numbered sequentially.  I need the first to last step in doing this and making sure it looks great.  I've searched the web high and low for answers,  but came up short.  I have Avid Media Composer 7 for my Mac Book Pro.  Any suggestions will help.  

     

    Thanks 

     

    Sean

    Sorry, I'm not at my Avid right now. But I believe you just select Import, select all of the files and be sure the check box next to Detect Sequential Still Images (or similar wording) is selected. You may have to mess with some of the other settings get it to look perfect, but that should get you most of the way there.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Sean,

    Here are detailed instructions:

    1. Right-click in the bin you want your photos to go to.

    2. Select Import.

    3. In the Select files to Import dialog box, select Options.

    4. In the Import Options box check the following options:

    Image sized for current format (this assumes the frame size of your photos matches the frame size of your project.  In other words, this setting assumes you're working in a 1920x1080 project, and have 1920x1080 photos, for example.  If that's not the case, tell us what type of project you're working in and what size the photos are, and we can tell you which setting to use.)

    601 SD or 709 HD (16-235).

    Ordered for current format.

    Ignore.

    Autodetect Sequentially-Numbered Files (this one is important.  If you check it, you'll get one long clip made out of your timelapse photos.  If you don't check it, you'll get each photo as an individual item.)

    5. Click OK.

    6. In the Select files to Import box, select your photos.

    7. Click Open.

    This should result in one clip in your bin made up of each of your photos for one frame.  Hope that helps.

    ciao,
    Carl

    And if you need to change the duration of that onenew timelapse clip just use a speed change.
