I'm wondering if there is a maximum length for an exr image sequence or an image sequence in general. In After Effects I'm having trouble to load long exr image sequences

The Image sequence is loading fine to a certain length and then it doesn't load the following frames it either shows them like the footage is not connected (colored test screen) or it shows the last frame that was successfully loaded.

  • How long it is exactly? – p2or Feb 19 '15 at 10:49

    Sounds more like a bug - do you get error messages? Can you explain your trouble in detail? – p2or Feb 19 '15 at 10:56

    Thanks for updating the question - you can try to open up the frame(s) in another tool (blender, fusion, nuke, natron). If it works fine - send a bug report to adobe. – p2or Feb 19 '15 at 11:34

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's a bug report. – p2or Feb 19 '15 at 13:45

    Found out that this was a problem with my hard drive formatting. – Benedikt May 4 '15 at 10:36

Maybe check the frame after it stops loading, it could be a corrupt file that causes After Effects to stop loading the rest of the files.

  • If I separate the frames in folders of 1000 frames and load them in one after the other it seems to work all fine. – Benedikt Feb 19 '15 at 11:40
  • That is a strange behavior. It really does sound like a bug. I've used image sequences that exceeded more than 10k frames. – timonsku Feb 19 '15 at 14:38
  • In After Effects? – Benedikt Feb 19 '15 at 14:40
  • Yes, you might want to try to use a newer version of fnord'S OpenEXR plugin: fnordware.com/OpenEXR Its free and included in the trial download for ProEXR for PS. – timonsku Feb 19 '15 at 14:41
