Importing Still Images

Although individual images are only single frames, you can set them to play back in the program for any duration. Also, if the aspect ratio of the still doesn't match the project's aspect ratio (usually, 4:3), you must specify whether Premiere should maintain the still image's original proportions or resize it to fit the screen.

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

1.
Choose Edit > Preferences > General and Still Image (Figure 3.23).

Figure 3.23. Choose Edit > Preferences > General & Still Image.


The General and Still Image panel of the Preferences dialog box opens.

2.
In the Still Image section, type a default duration for still images (Figure 3.24).

Figure 3.24. Enter a default duration for imported still images. Here, the duration is 150 frames.


Hereafter, all still images imported into the project use the default duration. Still images that are already in the project or program remain unaffected. You can change the duration of a still-image clip at any time (see Chapter 4).
