Just some feedback from a new UE/UE5 user. I was trying to import media image sequence - it worked fine as jpg and PNG (with alpha) but if I tried to import the same sequence as EXR then it crashed (I think when I tried to playback in media player). Other than that, both jpg with greenscreen and PNG with alpha both worked fine.
yeah, have the same issue !
You don’t have to import the actual images to use in UE. You can place them in a Movies folder that you created in your content folder and say no when it says source files have changed. Then just give the media player the path.
