Import PNG Sequence in TVP 11

Post by totemcreative » 30 Jul 2019, 08:03

Hey guys,

Desperately need your help. I have the TVP 11 (Standard Edition). I can't seem to import any PNG sequence, only one image at a time. Maybe I'm not seeing the options? :cry: I really hope this isn't because I have the standard edition, because everyone needs this very VERY BASIC function.

Please let me know how to go about it.

Thanks in advance,
Nikhita

The trick is in naming. TVP looks for the file names and concludes that anything with the same letter pattern and consecutive numbering is a sequence, and imports the whole thing (unless you've checked "single image"). Any gap in numbering stops the import.

So
blabla_001.png
blabla_002.png
blabla_003.png
blabla_004.png gets imported as sequence.

blabla_010.png stops importing right here.
blabla_020.png
blabla_030.png
TVP 10.0.18, Mac Pro Quadcore 3 GHz, 16 GB RAM, OS 10.11, QT 7.7.3

In fact, TVP computes the step from the two first images, and then import images until there isn't any more in the sequence with that step.
In your example, it should work, with step = 10.

But :
img1
img2 <- last imported image because step = 1 (2-1) and there is no img(2+1) = img3
img4
img5

Keep in mind this is from memories of several years ago... details may vary :)

This seemed to work yesterday but it's not working today.
I tried importing a JPG sequence but it didn't import it even though it had sequential naming.
After that I exported the PSD layers as a PNG sequence instead of JPG, incase TVP has an issue with JPGs. It's refusing to import this sequence even with sequential naming, by giving me this error "iCCP: Known incorrect sRGB profile".

Any idea what the issue is? What settings should be used whilst exporting the seq from PS?

The color profiles used by Photoshop and TVPaint aren't the same.
A few years ago, I made a Photoshop script that lets you exports with the correct one: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9955 :)
