Extreme problems with pictctrl formatting!

what a headache! it’s not a problem with pictctrl, but getting illustrator (or anything!) to export the correct format to make my own dials. I can get close, sooooo close. but the farthest right image always gets a tiny piece cut off of the right side of it. and it seems like often, when I’m suuuure that my pixel math is right, when i try to turn the dial my picture slides just a little to the right. this is killing me! and im on osx so no knobman unfortunately. any tips guys?

maybe one picture is missing? if the range is from 0-100, that makes 101 frames …

thanks for the quick reply roman!

I don’t think the range of the output and the number of pictures used have to be related, and the problem isn’t that. i think my frames must not be spaced perfectly because as i scroll through each frame with the dial, the image shifts slightly to the right, then the border of the image gets truncated by a pixel or two (enough to make it look unprofessional) on the last frame. has anybody done this with photoshop or illustrator before?
