[Eric Steinberg] "1. Is it possible to set a duration for a still? I've figured out that you can set a still to freeze, and also check "link" on it, so that all you need to do is hit Return/Take to jump to the next item in preview. But what if I want a still to stay on the screen for 10 seconds, and then the next item in preview takes automatically?

2. Similar question as the first one: Is it possible to have a video freeze on the last frame, and stay frozen on that frame for 10 seconds, and then automatically the next item takes?

3. Is it possible to freeze video only, but audio keeps playing? Or do we simply have to make our clips ahead of time with the video freeze?

4. Any possibility to do more advanced transitions than dissolves? Could I key an animated graphic overlay over a cut between 2 clips, or in any other way do something a little sexier transition than a dissolve? "

Unfortunately, I think the answer to all of these questions is no. You can use the "Link" parameter to create delays between clips, but if I recall correctly, it's limited to 5 seconds and doesn't work with "Freeze."

You could solve all these issues in pre-production, though.
