Hi
I recently installed an update of Alam DV2 on my computer. The old version had the image stream function and it worked fine, allowing me to render a series of photos for an animation. However, on the newer version I have encountered a problem that when I import the image stream, where all the frames are named correctly, Alam jumbles up the frames, so the animation has odd frames where characters jump about for a frame and then return to the film>.
Is this a recognised problem, and if so, how do i stop it?

This isn't a problem we've had reported by anybody else. The current AlamDV2 version has been out for ages, so nothing has been changed recently. Is there anything different about the footage compared to what you used to use?

The image streams are in exactly the same format that they used to be in. I will try re-installing the software to see if that will help. If not I will post again. Thanks

I just re installed it, but that didn't have any effect. What happens is when I load the image stream it loads the animation, but the first section is missing. Most of that section is at the end of the animation instead of at the start. Every 24th frame or so, one of the frames from the section at the start appears, then the next frame returns to where it was before that. I dont kno why this is happening, but i would be very pleased if you knew of any solution.
Thanks

Are you 100% sure the image stream is numbered properly?
