How To Import Stop Motion Pictures Into Adobe Premiere

How To Import Your Stop Motion Pictures Into Adobe Premiere

  • Plug in your camera to the computer or place your memory card into the computer.
  •  Import your pictures by first opening Image Capture.
  • Select on the pictures you want to import and make sure you notice where you are saving the pictures.

First, make a folder for your pictures. If you shot on multiple days please make sure your pictures are organized by day (make a separate folder for each day's pictures).
Select on just one of your pictures that you took for this project. Right
click 'Get Info.' You'll notice that the dimensions are listed under more info.
Write these dimensions down.

Open Adobe Premiere. Create a new project (File>New>Project) and name it Stop Motion. Click OK.
Select Digital SLR>1080p>DLSR 1080p30 and name your sequence. DO NOT CLICK OK YET.


 Select the settings tab at the top and you should see an area that says Video and then frame size. Change the frame size to match the picture dimensions.




Click OK after you change the Video frame size.

Go to Adobe Premiere>Preferences in the upper left hand corner. Click General.  Change the Still Image Default Duration to 3. (If your pictures play too slow after changing these settings try changing them to 2). Click OK/



Next, go to File>Import and your picture folders. Note: import each day of photos in their own folders. DO NOT MIX THE PHOTOS.
 Drag the picture down to the timeline. You can now see all of your pictures in a row.Time to edit!
