The Motion File Browser has a function that collapses image sequences. This can create the illusion that you are missing still images from a folder. Since still images from a digital camera are imported with a numerical sequence , Motion views these groups of pictures as an image sequence. At the very bottom of the File Browser there is a button that toggles the way Motion will display image sequences. This button will toggle between a collapsed image sequence and showing all images. This is certainly a great feature when dealing with an actual image sequence, but when the image sequence is actually a group of stills with sequential names, it can be confusing if you don't realize the sequence is collapsed. This is especially confusing if there are a number of pictures deleted from the original import, because for every break in the sequence Motion will start a new sequence. For example if you import 50 photos and delete every tenth photo, Motion will display five images in the File Browser in collapsed mode.
