About sequentially numbered image tracks

(Updated 12/12/2019)

This function batch-places images exported as sequentially numbered images on a dedicated track.
Placed sequentially numbered images can be used to adjust the timing of their display on the graph editor using the Time Remap function.

 

About sequentially numbered image tracks

Place the sequentially numbered images (PNG, JPEG) in a folder and drag them directly to the timeline palette.

 

[Sequentially numbered image tracks] will appear in the timeline panel.

Playback allows you to see the video of the placed sequentially numbered images.

 

TIPS
Sequentially numbered images recognize the last number and are placed in the frame in that order.
When loading sequentially numbered images, make sure that the names of the images end with a number.

 

Timelimap

The Time Remap function can change the display timing of sequentially numbered images.
The order of the sequentially numbered images on the vertical axis can be adjusted in the graph editor, but it is the position on the timeline of the horizontal axis that determines the order of the images on the vertical axis.

The timing of the display can be adjusted with a curve.

 

 

Export settings

Sequentially numbered image tracks can be set to not be exported at rendering time by turning on the following icons.
Use this when you do not want to export the image at output, but always want to display it as a rough sketch while you are working.

 

 

Relocation of images

If there are images you want to replace in the linked sequentially numbered image folder, you can replace the images in the order in which you want to replace them.
Right-click on the sequentially numbered image folder in the [Project] and click [Reload data].

 

However, note that the order in which sequentially numbered images are placed in a frame is determined by the number at the end, so if images are deleted in the middle of a sequence or moved from a folder,
they will be placed skipping frames as shown in the video below.
(Frames with no images are marked with “NO IMAGE”.)

 

 

Precautions

If you want to match the frame rate, set the frame rate of the exported sequential images and the scene to the same setting.

 

 

Notes on Cubism 4.0

To replace a track of sequentially numbered images, delete it from the project palette and drag the folder of sequentially numbered images to the timeline palette again.

• If the number of sequentially numbered images is large, the Mac may not be able to read the sequentially numbered images properly.
