How do you keep an image, dragged from the project panel to the timeline, from spanning the entire composition length?
Images pulled to the timeline always span the entire composition. When you have a hundred clips, and only need two seconds or so, resizing each clip in a four minute composition is ... well, time consuming. Even dragging to the time and layer order just pushes it off the composition end, and still requires resizing.
Has to be an easy answer. Ready for my Homer Simpson "Doh!".
Thanks in advance
Preferences > Import > Still Footage...
Define your desired import default duration there.
To reset the out point of 100 layers press Ctrl/Cmnd + a while in the Timeline, move the CTI (current time indicator) to the desired out point, then press Ctrl/Cmnd + ]
Using the [ key sets the in poing.
or, as has been mentioned you can reset the default duration for still images in Preferences.
