Thread: Batch event time editing

  1. #1

    Default Batch event time editing

    I searched on here and apparently I'm not using the right terminology to find what I need.

    I am making a slideshow with pictures only and I'm needing to select all the pictures and have them display for the exact same amount of time as well as do a crossfade. How can I select them all and edit the time that they display?

    Thanks for any help!!

    What editing program are you using? If you are using Vegas.

    Set the duration you want each photo to be displayed on screen.

    a. From the Options menu, choose Preferences.

    b. Click the Editing tab.

    c. In the New still image length box, type the number of seconds you'd like each photo to be displayed in your movie.

    For example, if you wanted each photo to be displayed for three seconds with a one-second crossfade between photos, choose 5 seconds.

    If you have 40 images that you want to display during a three-and-a-half-minute song, choose 5.25 (210 seconds divided by 40 images).

    d. Click OK to close the Preferences dialog.

    Then just drag and drop the photos you want to use onto the timeline.

    Hope this is what you are looking for.

    Thanks so much. That really helps. one more thing. So, if the photos are already there, can I select all of them and change it, or do I HAVE to set it up before I begin the project?

    Thanks again!

    "Right Click" on the first photo and press "select events to the end" then carryout the options sequence as stated in my last post.
