How to Import Animation Frames Into Adobe Premiere Pro


Adobe Premiere Pro is a video production program. It features high-definition support, special effects plug-ins, one-click title insertion, and file rendering in several different video formats. The software is designed for use with digital videos, but it is capable of working on animation frames too. If you're an animator, you can import your images directly into Adobe Premiere Pro for editing. With the right file names, the program even organizes the frames in sequence, making the whole process less time consuming.

Things You'll Need

  • Scanner
  • Scan your animation frame into your computer if they are not already digitized.

  • Rename your animation frames alphanumerically. When the files are placed in a order ahead of time, you can import them directly into Premiere Pro in sequence. If you're only working with a few frames, or if you prefer to organize them manually in the Premiere Pro interface, skip to Step 3.

  • Open Adobe Premiere Pro.

  • Click on "Edit" if you're on a PC, or click the "Premiere Pro" menu on a Mac.

  • Click "Preferences," then "Media."

  • Select a framerate from underneath the "Indeterminate Media Timebase" menu. This framerate applies to all still images imported, including your animation frames.

  • Click "OK" to save your framerate settings.

  • Click "File" and "Import."

  • Click on the animation images to import them. If you're working with alphanumerical frames, click to select "Numbered Stills." A status bar lets you know how long the importing process will take. Once the animation frames are imported, you are returned to the main project window.
