Pro Tip: Create a movie with an image sequence on Mac

You can convert an image sequence—a set of sequentially numbered or named images—to a movie or time-lapse video in QuickTime Player.

Create a movie with an image sequence

1) In the QuickTime Player app, choose File > Open Image Sequence.

2) Select the image sequence folder in the Finder, then click Choose Media. You can also select specific images instead of an entire folder.

3) Set the movie quality.

To keep or change the quality of the image sequence, choose any of the following options in the image sequence pop-up menu:

  • Resolution: Choose the frame size.

  • Depending on the video format, some frame sizes may not be available.

  • Frame rate: Choose the number of frames per second (fps).

  • Encode for: Choose from Greater Compatibility (H.264), Better Compression (HEVC), and Higher Quality (ProRes).

4) Click OK.

The movie or time-lapse video opens in a new window.
