Layer Bar Size Import to Project
on Jan 3, 2014 at 8:44:50 pm

I know it seems rather AE101, but I didn't really know the correct terminology other than what I put in the subject line and couldn't find my answer. When I import image files into a project, I would like that file size (as in the layer bars that stretch out) to match in size with other files I already placed in the project that having to manually resize and adjust them every time. Is there a shortcut for this?

There is no auto resize upon import for images. When I have images that different sizes, I create an action in photoshop to resize and crop so everything will match up. Then run a Batch Automate on the folder with the images(making sure I save in a different location).

You're talking about layer duration, right?

Yes. Duration... Sad me... I just couldn't remember the basic terminology. Thanks both! I'll try that script!

No scripting necessary… it's in your preferences settings (Import). Select "Length of Composition".
