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 software.
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.

motion ok so here we are we are using
DaVinci Resolve 16 I'm in the Edit Page
and the problem arises when you have a
set of images like these and that
they're named in sequence like it goes
from 1 2 3 4 5 and the problem arises
when you drag this you do a select all
drag it into the media pool and I was
expecting to see all these images
separated not just one little icon that
has them all and what is this this when
you drag this down it's just this tiny
little clip and I play it it goes really
fast so what's happening here is the
Vinci resolve thinks this is a sequence
of frames like what's happening here
it's DaVinci Resolve thinks this is a
sequence of images that are meant to be
like a stop-motion video clip it puts it
all together and it fits 29 of those
images into one second if that was a
stop-motion type of series of images
that was created specifically
specifically like that then sure we
would use it that way but no in my
situation I want to use it as a normal
image if these images had different
names and then they weren't in sequence
then the Vinci resolve would treat them
separately how do we fix that okay first
let me delete these ones so let's go
Media tab okay so this is our media tab
I browse to that folder that contains
those images in sequence and it's
sitting in here let me double click that
okay so it grouped all these images into
one so if you drag that into your
timeline again it will treat that as a
video file and put each image into each
frame and you have 29 frames per second
at least that's the the frame rate I'm
using right now so that's not what I
want and how do we fix it the fix is
really simple you go here to the three
dots click it and show individual frames
okay now you can see each one of them
then you do a control a control I mean
copy all drag it down into your media
pool then go over to your edit page and
there they are
all nicely separated even though they're
in sequence so now you can drop these
one by one
if you want or you can select all or you
can select all and drag them down that's
the way I intended to make this this
video this type of video it's like a
slideshow it's not a stop-motion video
okay so that's the way to fix the

You can also rename images a certain way. Then you need at the end a constant number and before that a character as separator. I do typically name them:
XXXX is the old sequence coming from the camera naming system. This is good to use as it prevents to create no dublicates.
When you do that naming, you are able to drag and drop from everywhere….
Resolves looks from right to left for numbers even if there are characters in between. If this number is not kept constant you see the sequencing issue;) It appears random but if you understand this system you know why sometimes it seems to work and sometimes not.
Tida, thank you for that explanation of another way to fix the problem by renaming the files.
