    best way to do time lapse

    hey guys. im new here and have a question.

    I have hunderds of photos I want to make into timelapse. The only way i have found to import the photos is at 1 second. I want them to only be about 5 frames. Is there a way i can change them all rather then one at a time on the timeline.

    Can anyone help?




    edit - thanks to

    • AndrewAction and a bit of searching I found a way that worked. I made an inmark then a frame next a out mark. work great.

    Or import all clips with a duration set at 1 second.

    Then with your graphics bin in script view select all clips you want use.
    Press T to set marks at both ends.

    Press Q to go to mark in.

    Press 2 key once to advance 10 frames.

    Press I key to mark in
    Press W key to go to out.

    Press 1 key to go back 10 frames.

    Press O ley to Mark out.

    All clips are now marked IN and Out with a duration of 10 frames which will give you three shots per second in NTSC. Drag all the clips to your timeline

    You can auto import sequential files. Make sure you have the box "Auto-detect sequential files".

    If the pictures are labeled correctly (numerical value somewhere in the name) it will import all the files as ONE big video.

    From here just use it like any video clip. Slow it down to desired value (motion FX) to get the timing you desire.
