Cannot Increase the Duration of Still Image and Text
on Jul 20, 2011 at 3:21:04 pm

Got an issue, couldn't find a similar one in the rest of the discussions, and I'm pretty new to fcp.

In my timeline I have a still image with some text clips stacked on top of it. I'm editing something for a conference right now, and I need the image and text clips to last 45 minutes. When they come into the timeline, the default duration is 10 seconds, and when I try to extend them, they only extend to the duration of 01:05:07! I have tried dragging and typing out the new duration of the clips, I just cannot figure out how to make them go over a minute five. Thanks for any help given!

In your FCP settings,User Preferences, you can set the duration of imported stills.




Also,

Double click your Text clip;
In the viewer, upper left corner time-code.
Enter new duration.
