Adding multiple images into one sequence
on Nov 12, 2014 at 12:56:10 am

Hi Guys! A very noob question here.... I have about 100 photos i want to add to my sequence. Going to put some music under it and add it as an extra to a wedding dvd. The problem is the duration of each photo is 30 seconds. How do i change that duration from 30 seconds to 4 seconds without having to manually change each photos length in the sequence.
Thanks so much in advance!

BTW I am using :
Avid Media Composer 6.5.2
Windows 7 Professional

You can change the import duration in the MEDIA CREATION settings for still imports.

But then you wouldn't be able to cross dissolve...well, you would, but you'd need to shorten the duration of the stills on the timeline to accommodate that.

Or, change the import duration and take into account the dissolves.

But then you'll need to manually set the in point for each one to be 15 frames to 1 second from the first frame so that this'll work...a lot of manual labor, which you were hoping to avoid.

I can't see an easy way around this. Editing is labor intensive...

Thanks Shane!
Before when i used fcp7 i could just select all the photos choose a duration. I guess its a bit different since switching to avid.
Just thought there might be an easier way around this because next time I will have 1000 photos and it will take huge amount of time!

Here's how to set multiple In and Out points in one operation.

Open the Bin in Script View

Select the Clips you want to affect {Ctrl A selects all clips in bin}

Press G to clear any existing in/out points

Press T (sets Mark In /Out Points at beginning and end of clips)

Press Q (takes you to beginning of clips)

Use the #2 key (moves 10 frames forward) or #4 key (moves 1 frame forward) for as many frames as you want, and Mark In point

Again use the #2 key to set your desired duration and Mark Out point
