Adding Stills

Although individual images are only single frames, you can set them to play back in an edited sequence for any duration.

To set the default duration for still images before you add them:

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences > General ( Figure 3.43 ).

    Figure 3.43 Choose Edit > Preferences > General.

    The General pane of the Preferences dialog box opens.
  2. For Still Image Default Duration, type the initial duration of still images, in frames ( Figure 3.44 ).

    Figure 3.44 For Still Image Default Duration, type the initial duration of still images, in frames.

    For NTSC video, enter 30 frames for a one-second duration; for PAL, 25 frames for one second. Hereafter, all still images imported into the project will use the default duration. Still images that are already in the project or program are unaffected. However, you can change the duration of a still-image clip at any time using techniques you'll learn in Chapter 6, "Editing in the Timeline."
