Importing PNG Sequences in CG-200


-Put the PNG sequence in a folder

-Create a .txt text file in the folder, it can have any name

-Place each file name on a separate line, followed by a semi-colon and the delay in ms
--If left blank the default is 1/60 sec
--There does not need to be a header line, it only needs to be a list of files
--This needs to be done manually at this time, and may be resolved with a future update
