I recently used my GoPro camera to do a time-lapse and am using CineForm Studio to put all the images together into a time-lapse video. I recorded images on my GoPro until the card filled up, and now I have multiple folders containing 999 images from the time-lapse.

Short of renaming all files and combining them into one directory on my system (the GoPro will recycle individual filenames eventually), can I import from multiple directories into CineForm Studio to create one time-lapse video? Importing each folder created by GoPro separately creates multiple clips that can't be combined.

On the other hand, if I let Windows do its automatic file renaming, will the order of files be preserved automatically by timestamp?
