    3d/Speed Edit (TGA files question)

    Being new to both Speed Edit and 3d Arsenal, I am a bit confused on what to do next (or what steps i've missed).

    I've (successfully after a few tries) created output from 3d Arsenal as Sequence Targa files. But when I tried to bring in the images in to speededit, it takes my 500 frame sequence and turns it into a 25 minute sequence. Since I am working on a laptop, this took a while. I didn;t see any spot to set clip length in SE, since it looks like each one is about 30 seconds now. Help!!!

    Not sure how you managed that

    You are just bringing in the FIRST image, right? I think if you bring in all of them, it tries to do a slideshow.

    I brought all of them in. Will try just the first one tonight. Thanks (i hope!).

    I didn't notice any one else with a similar issue........so i am sure it's a User Generated problem.

    Depending on what version of SpeedEDIT you are using
    1.2, just drag the first frame
    1.5, hold alt while dragging the first frame

    Then hit the g key to make sure that SE is not trying to cut off the first and last second for transitions.

    Hit the y key to turn on overlay to see through it if it has alpha channel

    That should do it.

    You might also want to force render this section for ensured smooth playback.
    Go to add media requester
    go to effects tab
    go to video effects
    drag force render under sequence
    stretch it out to be the same length as the sequence
    let it render and play it

    Hope this makes it clearer. It's pretty sweet once you get the workflow down.
