Frame IndexEdit

The footage node holds a sequence of images, indexed from 0 to N. By default, when a footage node is created a new curve is created mapping the image index to the frame number, as shown

 
Default frame index curve

The default frame-index curve is a diagonal curve that goes from 0 to N, N being the number of images in the footage node.

To holding a frame we repeat a given image index for several time frames.
