So I had an imported clip 23 minutes long, drag it to the timeline, and for some reason, it's automatically defaulting to TWO HOURS duration, copy-pasting the clip and a lot of black, multiple times to fill that time. All on it's own. I'm new to Premiere, so I don't know for sure what's causing this, I guess it's in the sequence settings? How do I make sure the thing automatically sets a timeline duration that's the same as the length of the incoming media clip(s) ?

Can't be the frame rate since the playback is correct. It's just way longer than the material. It must make a difference where I drag the file from, to put onto the timeline.
Update: that's it. The weird duplication doesn't happen if I navigate to the media browser and drag from there. If I did it the original way I was doing it, the timeline filled-up with multiple copies of the footage clips, followed by low rez bitmaps that are the picons for the clips,then the associated audio files, by themselves. If I marked the extra stuff out and killed it right off the bat, I could still edit on the timeline and it would be the right length then.
