photo duration


S

I'm making a movie of a series of still photos to show in succession. I drag
the photos to the timeline, and then manually adjust the duration of each
photo individually. Is there a way that I can stipulate all the photos to be
a given duration that I decide for myself, and can change if I decide to?

TIA

================================
The setting change at: Tools / Options /
Advanced tab...only applies to clips added
to the timeline *after* you change the setting.

If you switch to 'Storyboard' view and select
all the clips as a batch (select one and type...
Ctrl+A)...you can add the "Speed Up, Double"
or "Slow Down, Half" effect to change the
duration. Just select all the clips / right click
the Effect and from the menu...choose...
Add To Storyboard.

"Speed Up, Double" cuts the duration in half.

"Slow Down, Half" doubles the duration.

These effects can be added up to six times.

And...as you have been doing...You can change
the duration for each clip manually.

Or...just redo the project after you change
the duration at: Tools / Options / Advanced
tab.

If your project only includes photos and music...
the free PhotoStory 3 is a better app IMHO.

And there's a free download for PS3 that allows
some batch adjustments:
