after you have put it on the Timeline.
I have set the duration as 3, which looks a bit long, and now wish to amend it to 1.
Is that possible?
Sorry to post two questions on the same day.
I do not recall what version of Premiere Elements that you are working with, so I will generalize.
Right click the freeze frame on the Timeline, select Time Stretch. Then in the Time Stretch dialog, set the 00;00;03;00 to 00;00;01;00. That designation represents hours; minutes; seconds; frames.
Please let us know if that worked for you.
Never too many questions.
I saw your other thread. It seems that you and SG are communicating on that. Since that is the case, I do not want to disturb the flow back and forth between the two of you.
I will be watching your progress there and will be glad to contribute there later if necessary.
Thanks for that.
I have right-clicked on the image itself on the Timeline (I have version 11) and located Time Stretch where I replaced 00;00;05;00 with 00;00;01;00, but the duration did not actually change on the Timeline.
It should change.
So, expand the Expert workspace Timeline with the zoom out ( - ) zoom ( + ) slider above the Timeline (toward right).
Make sure you have the clip that you want highlighted. I think you do since you have gotten to the Time Stretch dialog.
Please give it another try for the same Freeze Frame on that Timeline or a newly created one. We can start thinking about flushing the preferences, but I am not sure if we are ready for that yet.
If worse comes to worse and you are in a time crunch, drag the right edge of the freeze frame in to shorten its duration.
Also, depending on how things go, open a new project and see if you can get the Time Stretch to work on a Freeze Frame duration so that we can determine if the issue is generalized or specific to the one project.
Looking forward to your results.
OK, I have the Timeline quite expanded and repeated what I did before: ensuring the correct frame was highlighted and right-clicked and chose Time Stretch and replace 00;00;05;00 with 00;00;01;00. The 'gap' did not close so I played the movie (where the image is) and I could tell it was longer than one second.
Yours sounds like a good solution: dragging in from the right. I will try it all now and the save the file (I don't want to lose it), and will post back with how things are looking.
Thank you again.
That was great news.
If you get a chance, let us know if any further developments on the Time Stretch way.
I am trying to think if I am missing anything in thinking about the why not.
Thanks again. Much appreciated the follow up.
One little tip, that you might have discovered, is when altering the Duration of a Clip, whether a Freeze-frame, or not, is to open the Info Panel, which will give you a full SMPT read-out of the Duration, when click+dragging. Whenever I am adjusting Duration, via that manner, I always go to the Info Panel, to watch my changes.
That's great, Bill. I never knew what the panel was for.
I am staying away from slow/fast motion for that reason (especially if audio is involved). That's a whole different world - but one to look forward to.
Enjoy your weekend.
