I’ve looked to find an answer but I’m coming up short and I have no experience with editing so I apologize if this is a boring newbie question.
I’m trying to make a video montage using photographs for a family event. I have about 100 pictures and I would like each one to display for about 5 seconds and have a transition between pics. Is there some way I can set the 5 seconds in a batch so I don’t have to do each one individually?
In the Properties panel look for Duration, set it to your liking and click Set as Default
All photos will have this duration on the Timeline from now on - until you change it, which you can do even within the same project. Enjoy!
Several months ago I made a slidesow with about 40 photos. I set the duration to 10 seconds. I put the first photo on the Timeline as described. Then I selected the second photo in the Playlist and added it to the Timeline with the (+) Plus icon. That automatically puts the Playhead at the end of photo clip. Use the Alt + Left arrow to move the playhead to the first frame of the second clip. Then, use the Pg-Up key to move the Playhead 30 frames/1 second back up the Timeline. Select the second clip and drag it left to meet the Playhead and drop there. Now you have a standard, 2 second cross-fade between photos. Repeat the sequence for the remaining photos. Once you get the pattern down the slideshow actually goes together quite fast. -=Ken=-
