Whilst creating my Tug concept using the sequencer I discovered a problem with the filename length when bringing in TGA images. If it’s greater than 36 characters in length, excluding the extension, it will crash blender when you move the image or images to the current frame marker.
I have reported this to the Blender.org Bug Tracker, but I wanted to give the heads-up to blender sequencer users as it wasted a good 40 mins as I tried to resolve the problem.
One might say why do you need filenames over 36 characters in length? Well when I am working on complex scenes with many layers I find it easier to identify the correct filenames with more descriptive titles. I find this useful when I have many strips in the sequence editor to.
Anyway just keep those filename lengths down below 36 characters and you will be fine.
