Importing images and video

Importing images and video

To import image or video files into your HUE Animation project, go to File → Import and select the appropriate file(s). You can import more than one at the same time by holding the shift key when you make your selection, but we recommend only importing a few at a time so as not to overload your computer’s memory.

Before you import a video or image, remember to note where your cursor is on the video timeline, as the images/video will drop in to the right of the cursor. Large videos will take longer to import than individual pictures.

If you import a video, the video will be added as a ‘clip’ composed of a number of still frames. You can separate the clip into individual images using the Ungroup Clip To Frames button in the Manage Timeline tab.

Tip: You can reposition your frames by selecting them and dragging them in the timeline if you accidentally import them in the wrong place.

Please note that importing large files may take some time depending on the speed of your computer.
