Importing A Image Sequence In To Abobe After Fx 6.5

So you've built, animated and rendered a beautiful detailed city in your favorite 3D application. Now all that is left is to import your JPEG, TARGA, or PNG files into good 'ole Adobe After Effects.

When I'm working in 3D Studio Max I prefer to render out PNG frames because they allow me to include an Alpha channel that Adobe AE will recognize. When you are ready to import your frames to After FX go to File > Import > File and an Import File window will appear. Make sure that the PNG Sequence box is checked and then click the first frame once then hit open.

After Effects will import your graphic frames as if they were a piece of footage. Make sure you have the correct Pixel Aspect Ratio of your sequence by right clicking your file in the project window and going to Interpret Footage > Main > Other Options and select D1/DV NTSC (0.9) because leaving them as square pixels will distort your image.
