Creating an image sequence

I used Media Encoder to convert video footage into an image sequence.  This converts every frame into an image file.

It is very simple to do and should you wish, you can change the size and frame rate of your file.  This is particularly useful if you are wanting to rotoscope for a simple animation, as 24 fps can be labourious.

So, firstly, I opened Media encoder and added my footage.

I then selected the 'custom' preset, checked the 'export as sequence' box and selected the frame rate that I wanted 15fps then hit OK.

I chose the location for the new file sequence under 'Output File' and hit the play symbol.

This has now created a file of images, one JPEG per frame.
