good day. "I renderd image sequence" of a 10 seconds clip and i got around 120 frams i put them through photoshop and just put a filter on each pic/frame.

how do i know import the pics back beacuse when i just drag them into the media pool and then into the timeline each fram does for the normal 10 seconds. how do i import them so vagas recognises each as a frame rathern then a pic

Go into 'preferences>editing' and change the 'default new image still length' to one frame.

thankx that got me a little farther but the problem is, once i set it to 29.970 fps
and put all the frames in the time line it goes fater then the original project.

in other words lets say if i render the frames from a 10 seconds scene. when i put them back into vagas (with 29.970 fps) its would be 9 seconds now.

for one reason or another it seems to speed up even though the fps seems to match.
any ideas?

Use the import media via the file menu. Click on the first frame/image and notice the check box for "open still image sequence" at the bottom.
BTW, other programs don't follow the correct NTSC 29.970 duration that Vegas uses. Can cause a glitch about 5 seconds into your sequence.

You have less than half the number of frames you should have in your 10 second clip. You should have about 300.

Check File > Project Properties to make sure you have not accidently set the frame rate to half NTSC.
