A Series of Stills..Trick to adjusting lengths all at once?
on Feb 4, 2012 at 2:38:10 am

Seems silly... I've always done this by hand, but there must be a faster way to adjust the lengths of a series of stills...
Example: The default length for a still image is 10sec. I have 50 stills, I need each at 10 frames length each.

You can change the default length that stills import at in your user preferences (alt+Q). Set it to be however long you want them, then just reimport.

OK I can see that. .. but not in these situations, where piles of different stills need to be custom adjusted.
Thanks for the input Michael!

IF you're in FCP 7 and you're trying to do what I think you're doing...
- Select all the stills.
- Right-Click
- Select 'Duration'
- Enter the desired new duration.

Note: I think it requires them all to be the same duration to begin with. And...
Altering the duration of a clip/some clips this way can push later clips down in the timeline.
I usually do this to clips (stills) in a sequence of their own, or cut/paste them to the end of the Timeline, make the adjustment, then cut/paste them back where I want them.

Hope this helps.

Neil.
