This help article explains how image import works. I suspect issue is related to the numbering inside image filenames. Could you post few samples with filenames that does not ordered correctly.

Got the same problem, every eleventh frame is out of it's original place. I've tried renaming them in order and it did not help. Seems like the program would take first 80 or so frames and scatter it all over the sequence.

It seems that I have this problen only if I group rename the files. Like Ctrl+A / right click on the first one (then windows sets numbers in barckets)

Fixed the problem with renaming software (Advanced Renamer). Brackets seem to be the problem.

e.g. Filenames that cause problems: snow (1)jpg snow (2). jpg etc

Filenames that work fine: snow001.jpg snow002.jpg etc.
