I am now using PE 12 instead of PE 8 and some of the features from 8 have either been moved or I no longer can find them. That said I have been looking where I can preset the length of my clips and the length of my transitions. I know how to change them after they are imported into my project but I would like to do a project preset and than adjust a clip here and there as needed. Thank you
I don't know of a way in either version 8 or version 12 to preset the length of your clips -- unless you're using them in a Project Assets slideshow. And unless you're talking about still photo length.
But the default lengths for video and audio transitions and still photos can be set on the General page of the Preferences -- which, on a Windows computer, is under the Edit menu.
Thank you and yes the settings that I was looking for were right there. I had just forgotten that "frames" converted to seconds. I had forgotten that language. Thank you again.
