ignoring missing frames on image sequences

Hello all ... what I am struggling with has to be common.

Is there a way to properly place a squence into my composition that I rendered as even # only frames ignoring the gaps in the numbers.

To clarify the qustion here is my situation 'half-solutions' I know

I ussually composite in AE several layers of tiff sequences. (IE: seperate foreground layer, background layer, character layer). To save render time I render even # frames (2,4,6,8...ect). In AE I get a 'missing frame x" w/color bars on my composition.

This is easily 'hidden' by
A) setting my comp to 15 fps.
B) Pre-AE renumber the tiffs by pushing all my files through rename utility.

I know no other ways.
Method a) still has an issues if you time stretch or reverse the clips - the color bars still pop up
Method b) is cumbersome to projects with lots of revisions in the pipline.
