    Got back from doing another timelapse and a few of my photographs wrote a _1 behind them........completely messing up the whole sequence...

    Is there any way of changing file names to like....

    img1
    img2
    img3
    etc

    When you select all the files and say rename it goes

    img (1)
    img (2)
    img (3)

    And flash doenst recognize them as sequenced images:o

    Anyone know how to change the file names in sequence?

    Is it a Nikon??

    I had this happen to me. It was a setting in the way it was saving some RGB files......I think. I'm high right now so I don't remember exactly but I can go look for you if you don't understand.
     
  3. If you're goign to import them all into a sequenced flash file don't bother renaming them. Unless you like inserting an image in every keyframe like you said you had to do originally.

    Flash wouldnt recognize the filename (1), filename (2), etc as a sequence of photos......so I used IfranView to change all the file names into sequence so that Flash would recognize it......got it to work!

    you can use photoshop to rename in batches, also (but you already figured it out with Ifranview)
