We'll take a moment to talk about image sequences.…Now if you have already worked with image sequences, this might be familiar…information, if you haven't, this will be good to know.…Now there are two ways to work with live-action footage inside compositing…program like After Effects.…One is to bring in a movie like a QuickTime or AVI file, and the other is to…work with the image sequence.…Now traditionally, Visual Effects work uses image sequences, but what is an image sequence?…An image sequence is a series of still images that are numbered in such a way…that they can be imported in the correct order.…
Compared to a movie, a movie is a single file where all the frames are stuffed…into a single file, like a QuickTime. Well, why do we use image sequences?…Well, for instance, motion pictures are often shot on motion picture film.…In other words features are shot on actual film.…That film has to be converted to some digital format to do the effects,…therefore they run through a scanner.…The scanner converts individual film frames into individual still images.…
