How to Import Image Sequence into DaVinco Resolve | 1 Minute Fix

This video shows you how to get around the problem where DaVinci Resolve groups your sequenced images into a frame by frame video clip, instead of treating each image separately when you import it or bring it into the Media Pool.

The default behaviour for Resolve is to recognize sequentially numbered stills as movies.

When you import images that are named sequentially such as image-001.jpg, image-002.jpg, image-003.jpg, etc, DaVinci Resolve will by default think you have a set of stop motion images and then groups these images together to form a frame by frame video clip with each image occupying only 1/29th of a second if your selected frame rates for the video is 29 frames per second. So your 29 vacation photos will take only 1 second to show.

That's pretty unfortunate because most cameras name the photos you take sequentially and you will constantly have this problem with DaVinci Resolve.

But there's an easy fix and this video shows you how.
