    iMovie n00b here. :eek:

    Simple question: is there a way to batch change the duration of a still image "clip" in iMove 3? Or set the default duration before importing the photos?

    I'm just playing around with my DSLR and stop-motion animation, and changing 100s of frames from 2mins to something more reasonable is just impossible.


    Any thaughts?

    Cheers,
    D.

    Changing the default duration of still clips
    A still image clip in your movie lasts 5 seconds by default.

    To change the default duration of still images:

    1 Choose Preferences from the iMovie application menu.
    2 Click Import.
    3 Type a new number of seconds in the "Still Clips are" field.

    The duration in the Time field is read as "minutes: seconds: frames."

    What version of iMovie is that?

    I'm using 3.0.3 and have no such options. :confused:

    But thanks anyway. :)
