    Using pics in a sequence

    I'm a noob here, so forgive me for what is likely a very simple question.

    I have a bunch of pics I'd like to use in a sequence, and while I've figured out how to get them in...they display WAY too long. 

    I then figured out that I can go into a pic and using the "Mark In" and "Mark Out" I could trim it down to whatever length I wanted.

    Is there a way to set ALL pics when added to a sequence to display for 2seconds?  Or do I need to "Mark In" and "Mark Out" each pic, one at a time?

    Thanks!!

    I think I found it!  I'm assuming it's the import setting....change it from 10 to 2!!

    I searched for hours and right after posting I found that! Figures! :)

    Highlight all your pics in the bin, go into 'script' mode (one of the tabs inside the bin) mark an in point by pressing 'i' on your keyboard, move forward 50 frames for PAL (60 for ntsc) by pressing the 'advance ten frames' key (the '2' key on the non-numpad side of your keyboard) 5 / 6 times (5 / 6 x 10 frames = 50 / 60 frames = 2 seconds). Then press the mark out button (the 'o' on your keyboard). Then just drag all the highlighted clips at once into your timeline.

    If you limit the import to 2 seconds and use the whole clip in your timeline, you will have no handles for dissolves, fades, or other type transition. Doing in by marking in and out from a longer master clip ensures you have the handles if needed.

    Because of what was mentioned regarding tranistions and whatnot, I decided to do what you suggested here (and NOT what I found with the import method).

    Only I can't seem to do a "group edit"  I followed your instructions and it seemed pretty straight forward, but it just seem to work.  I see the Mark In and Mark Out symbols right next to each other.  This was all using the keyboard  ( "i" key....."2" key 5 times and then the "o" key )...do I have to do something to enable the keyboard shortcuts?  Or am I just missing something due to a "rookie error" :)

    Re: Using pics in a sequence

    Hi,

    This can be tricky to get the first time.  Select all your clips in text mode and clear the in and out marks, and press "Home" to get the position indicator back to the start of the clips.  Then deselect the clips and close the bin.

    Now, open it back up and try setting the marks again.

    good luck,
    Carl

    Re: Using pics in a sequence

    hi, the method works like you described, but I have a lenght from at least 10 frames.

    How can go down to one frame - it doesnt work with the "5" keyboard button (step forward one frame).

     

    Or if I have allready the sequenze with "many" pics - lenghts 10 frames - can I trim lets say 100pics in the timeline to one frame - all at the same time?

    Re: Using pics in a sequence

    You can't do it all at one time if they're already in the SEQ, but if you use the Tail feature you can do it quickly.

    Park at the cut point between two clips, advance one frame.  Hit Tail.  Advance to next cut +1 frame, hit Tail, repeat.
