Nope same dealio Amigo... That is not the case.
I opened a new 'comp'
set the time to 23. sec
imported my .mov file which is 10.sec
dropped in the little icon to set the timeline with the same parameters.
Imported fine. Plays fine. Right clicked on timeline as described above
yet to no avail, I am still sitting at 10 seconds in my time line...
Here is a snip of my options: See increase in duration. This is me doing
The dialog box in your screengrab will change the duration of your layer, but not the composition. Your composition is 10 seconds long.
Go to Composition Settings and define the duration of the comp as 23 seconds.
Notice the third line in my original post.... I did indeed create a "new comp with more then needed"
I found out what it is though. After stretching it with the 'right click' I need then to select my 'new comp'
on the RHSide
Thanks for your help on this. it was a matter of ME not selecting the NewComp created when I "stretched the timeline"
Did you see the part of my post that said change composition settings? No need to make a new one, just change the comp settings. Ctrl/Cmnd + K will do it.
@Rick G the "No need to make a new one." Is a lot like reading a bomb diffuse manual that states: "Cut the Blue wire.... But not before the yellow wire!" LOL! I was doing it kinda backwards is why I had a bit of a challenge.
Steps to do it are:
Drop file onto ICON to create Comp.
Use shortcut "CNTRL K" to modify Comp length to desired time amount.
THEN Right click and adjust Time settings in percentage desired.
My post of:
I tried to Create a new Comp with 23 seconds total (to accomodate the doubling of it) <---- Right there was my problem! Do not Create a New Comp. Change the comp settings after it's created from Drop in. THEN stretch it.
The whole challenge was because I was creating a NEW Comp before dropping my file on the timeline and letting AE create the Comp and THEN adj parameters.
Thanks for the shortcut of "CNTRL K"
