There are easier ways, if you're OK starting from scratch.
First, delete all the pictures from your bins. Then go to General preferences and change the duration of still images to 4 seconds (120 frames). Next, import the pictures back in. They will now all be 4 seconds long.
Finally, use the Automate to Sequence feature to add them all to the timeline complete with transitions.
Jim is correct but by default the transition will be simple fades or dissolves. You can change the default transition midway into the project. For example you could do 10 clips with a checkerboard transition and then the next ten with a clock wipe. Automate to timeline/sequence is a big time saver.
If you've already laid out the timeline, another way is to nest that sequence inside another and reduce it to 2/3 the length to get from 6 to 4 seconds per still. Have to add transitions manually that way, though.
The other 'glitch' with the nesting method is that transitions will be shortened along with the stills.
You're quite right, of course, but from the question transitions had yet to be added.
Doesn't matter. He can't add them in the nested sequence, only the original. Whenever he adds them, they'll be shortened.
I tried this today, ( Automate to sequence )
with 200 images for a test.
images were named 00.jpg, 002.jpg 003.jpg etc.....
Premiere will import them, but not in the correct order. I removed them all, and tried again, still not the same order.
I then only imported 20 images, and still - it will not import them in the correct order.
Any reason this would be happening ?
Did you try sorting the bin after import?
Also when you automate to sequence notice the Ordering field. Set it to sort order to sequence them i nthe order sorted in the bin, or selection order (order you selected them)
I must be blind, because I do not see any "sort" in the bin area, I just don't see it. How do you go about sorting the items ?
Just click on the header column you want to sort by.
Or; in Icon view, drag the thumbnails to the order you want.
Thanks everyone for the help!!!
