Does PowerDirector suport Number Image Sequence files?

Like - I have numbered image sequences in jpeg format and need to pull them together for a movie.

Hi Alan -

The short answer is yes. There are different ways to go about it.

This little tutorial shows how - http://youtu.be/NW9-c-jINBY

In loading (copying) the images from the sequence file, Power Director stopped and said it exceeded the 2,500 limit of images. Any way around this?

Ah - 2500+ images?

No - to my knowledge there's no way around that limitation in PD.

You could produce the video in smaller segments then combine the pre-produced files. That's the best I could suggest.

That sure makes the project longer.

Not trying to be a movie pro just want to get these home movies converted in a decent production.

Oh Well!!

Does your film capture device have software that will produce a Movie instead of numbered image sequence files?

You can still produce a movie for the numbered images, but Powerdirector has the limit of 2,500 images at a time.

It does not have that same limit for Movies. Movies can be any length and up to 4K resolution.

Have you ever told the forum what machine and what software?

Yes.

The scanner can scan at 1:1, (Numbered Image Sequences) in jpeg and other formats), 720p, 1080p, and you can export it out as a .MOV file with image sequence or not, HD or SD.

I figure the best quality whcih is reasonable is 1:1, 1080P (might change that to 720P), and export as a .MOV file. Now, I am told that this is not as good quality as exporting in the Image Sequence format - but we may not be able to tell the difference.

What a learning exp;erience.

It was easier to build a super computer than to figure all of this out!

I will have to experiment somemore.

Thanks for all your support.
