Im searching for a way to change the lenght of the composition that im making by importing a psd as a composition.So in clear, i want to set the lenght of my composition before i import the psd to make the comp.I'have search in prefs, google..etc but find nothing.

Thanks in advance.

In After FX > Preferences > Import you can set the default length of imported still compositions.

Thank but that do not the trick, like I writed, you have to make a new comp and set the lenght, and it become your default lenght for all subsequente comp you make, but the lenght for the still in the imported psd, can be set in the pref but not the comp lenght.

Thank anyway for taking your time to answer.

Sorry again, i figured out how to do.You just have to make a new comp and set the lenght you want for your imported psd.So when you set a lenght for a comp, it become your default value for every other.

I always knew, but haved a blank...

I guess I still don't understand your initial question... but...

You can change the length of any comp you have already created by pressing CMD+K

Yes i know, but when i import a huge psd with a ton of layer/folders, as a composition, AE make a comp for each folder, so 1 psd = 55 compositions, and i dont want to change the lenght of the 55 comps manually, so i have to set the lenght of A NEW COMP, when i do so, the lenght I set become the default lenght value for any other comp I create after, including the lenght of the psd import, as a comp.

Thank for your time
