Chapter 2. Importing Footage into a Project > Setting Still-Image Durations

Setting Still-Image Durations

When you import a still image as a footage file and make it a layer in a composition, you can set its duration to any length. By default, the duration of a still image matches the duration of the composition. However, you can also manually set the default duration for still images. Doing so comes in handy when you plan to use several stills for the same duration, such as a series of title cards for a credit sequence. Of course, you can always change the duration (or trim) of the layer later. See Chapter 4, “Compositions,” for more about adding footage to a composition as layers; see Chapter 6, “Layer Editing,” for more about editing layers.
