Have Premiere Pro CS4
Still Image Default Duratrion
No matter what I type, the program will OK this. The result are the same. (I think it is the default)
What is wrong?
I am only guessing what your problem is!
You must change the Duration Preference before you place the items in the timeline.
Actually...I think you need to do it before you import the items into the Project Bin ( maybe someonewill correct this)
You are correct, with one addition - as of CS4.2, one can now Select multiple stills in the Project Panel, Rt-click and then alter the Duration. From CS3 and earlier, one had to Delete and re-Import for the Preferences to take affect.
Hope that this helps,
