Hello blendevs'! Here is one bug report:

It is not possible to load

But it is possible to load one single image.

Short description of error

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).

I Love so much this new 2.80!!!

Event Timeline

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) triaged this task as Needs Information from User priority.

I'm afraid we need a bit more information here (with the exact steps to reproduce):

  • are you using the Node Wrangler addon to do this?
  • or are you using the Image Node open with Detect Sequences option?
  • what is your naming convention on these files [e.g. name.##.ext, name_.ext, name##.ext, ...]
  • do you have all of them selected in the filebrowser, or just a single?
  • (possibly a zip file containing a small subset of your sequence)

Marking as incomplete untile we have the required information...

Sorry for that.

To reproduce:
Go to compositor panel
SHIFT A, image sequence then A to select all.

Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'nodes'

Then, with node wrangler disactivated, image sequence disapear.


I just found that with and witout node wrangler, adding an image (and not an image sequence) works fine...

SO what is the shiftA/Input/image sequence option?

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) raised the priority of this task from Needs Information from User to Confirmed, Medium.

The node wrangler feature (shiftA/Input/image sequence) is a bit more forgiving when it comes to naming of the sequences.
[and thx for spotting that error -- happens when you dont have Use Nodes activated in Compositing editor.... will fix...]
There is another error in the Node Wrangler addon that you will run into even if you have Use Nodes activated in Compositing editor (see T59962, will also fix shortly...)
When these error are fixed, Node Wrangler is a bit more forgiving behavior when it comes to naming of the sequences, as stated above.

reg. the Detect Sequences option (shiftA/Input/image): that will also try to detect sequences (but is not as forgiving), for example:

  • name####.ext works in both Image (blender + Detect Sequence) and Image Sequence (node wrangler)
  • name_####.ext wont work in Image (blender + Detect Sequence) but works in Image Sequence (node wrangler)

Anyways, will confirm for now and fix the Node Wrangler errors...

You're welcome,
I really enjoy your work guys, and I am impressed how efficient you are!
