Possible to change slideshow image duration?
Reply to this topic

Is it possible to set the duration of each image in a slideshow? Via Tools I set image default length to be 2 seconds, drag all imported images to timeline, and they default to 2s good. Make a slideshow of the lot, using style "normal" finish creating one clip of the whole lot - image duration now approx 3-4 seconds.

No changes to image duration or transition length seems to have any effect on the resultant video length and image duration.

This is either a bug / shortcoming / or I'm missing something

Please help

Hi Alan

If you use the "Motion" slideshow you can set each individual duration. Once Motion is selected, on the next screen is "customize" here you can change durations as you want.

Wow - I use PD16 quite a bit but for a fairly limited range of operations which it does very well at. Tend to spend more time getting good shots rather than playing with the end result. You guessed it - I never even know you could do what you just suggested - absolutely mind blowing level of manipulative control. Thank you.

I did before your reply work out that I get quite a nice result using the transition rooms functions of inserting transitions between all the photos with a degree of control - like totally random - selections based on your favourites - or plain fade. But the photo duration is under total control - even having individual durations should you desire.

But thanks for your input - thats a whole new world out there to explore when time permits - this project was necessarily brief for speed.

Alan.
