In this first Ramen Tutorial I'm going to explain navigating the Interface of Ramen. Ramen is a node based compositor like other compositors such as Nuke and Autodesk Composite which is pre-bundled with 3D packages from Autodesk (Maya, Softimage, 3D Studio Max). To Import a image sequence get the node Input then Image. In the image you'll notice that I have a blur node, that is there for example the blur node will add a blur to the image sequence.

In this step, I'm showing you witin Inspector which in this image is inspecting the image sequence that I brought in from rendering from Softimage. You can see that it shows you the path of the image sequence on my computer and the length of the sequence in this case is 250 frames at a resolution of 320x216.
