Set Multiple In/Out Points on Stills
on Apr 27, 2012 at 2:59:10 pm

I have someone bringing in about 400 JPEGs of their wedding in the Bahamas that they want turned into a video.

I will bring them in at about 8 seconds a piece.

Is there a way (there must be) to set the in and out on the whole batch of them so they all have handles for dissolve transitions?

Sorry, I have searched but must not be using terminology that is getting me anywhere. Thanks.

Have a COW, man.

Before importing your stills, you can go into the User preferences and set a still duration time. When the jpegs are imported, they will come in at the length you have specified. Just set the length to include whatever amount of time you need for your handles.

If you import stills they have a duration of 2 minutes. So when you tell the prefs to import them with a duration of 6 seconds, the in and outs will be in the middle of the clip so you'll have plenty of handles for transitions.... just grab them in the order you want them and drag them al to a sequence...
