Hi all:

I'm doing a project where I need to extend the time of 2 still pictures to around 1 minute each. A still, then a video clip and then another still at the end.
Now, I know this can be done by going through Preferences>Edit, etc, but doing it that way is cumbetsome. Is there another way to do this where the still pics can be selected and then the duration changed.

Thanks for replies

Maybe a couple of ways would meet your needs:
1) right click on clip, Set Clip Attributes > Set Duration...
2) highlight the clip, hold "Ctrl" key and move mouse towards the clip edge, a double arrow will appear, left mouse click and drag to extend. A menu will appear when mouse release on how to handle extension

You could just place the clip on the timeline and grab the end and drag it to the desired length. Or click on the clock on the toolbar and change the duration there.

Changing in the settings would be useful if every image you were going to add were that length.
