Chapter 9. Editing Still Pictures > Changing the Duration of a Still Clip

Changing the Duration of a Still Clip

Now that your picture has been added to iMovie, it can be edited like any other clip (see Chapter 8). However, if you haven’t applied the Ken Burns Effect (see the next page), the change you’re most likely to make is to the clip’s duration. Instead of trimming the clip, simply tell iMovie how long the clip should be.

To change a picture’s duration:

1.
Double-click the still clip, or choose Show Info from the File menu (or, press Command-I).

2.
In the Clip Info dialog box, enter a new value into the Duration field (Figure 9.7). The field uses timecode format (seconds: frames, though you could go ahead and enter a full hours:minutes:seconds:frames value such as 01:34:25:19 if you wanted).

Figure 9.7. Double-click a still clip to access the Clip Info screen, where you can change the duration value. Other video clips do not have an editable Duration field.
