Am I able to preset the duration of a still that I bring in from the browser? Its coming in at 10 seconds at default. Thank You.

You can change that inside your FCP preferences. Take a look at all the options.

OK. Thanks Guys. I changed the preference after I imported the files (stills) and it was coming into the timeline at 10 seconds. I guess you need to change the preference first then import the file.

B/4 import works best.

But,

You can double click a still in the sequence and in the window - upper left, duration/timecode - enter new duration.
