I'm having some trouble with dragon frame. I finished a project and all the frames inside the software are ok. But when i export the images some frames are wrong, they're showing my hands and when i look frame by frame in dragonframe it doesn't appears. Can you help me?
You can find the answer to this in the Dragonframe FAQ, under the section "Hands in shot / deleted images in export":

Did you conform? Confoming will dump your deleted frames.
If you delete frames while you are animating, because your hand was in the shot or something else was wrong, they still exist in the folder, even though you don't see them when you play back the frames. When you are finished, DF will ask you if you want to conform. If you say Yes, they will be deleted, and the remaining frames re-numbered so they all play as a sequence with no missing numbers. It takes a minute or two for DF to re-number and save. If you say No, those frames will still be there when you export the images.
If you have editing software where you can delete those individual frames, and then save the sequence, you can fix the shots that you already exported with the unwanted frames still in there.
