This is something I've been trying to figure out how to do for a while but have never found a solution.
Let's say that I have a rather large number of still images (say 100+) that I want to place on a video track. All the images are unique and have been set to a duration of approximately 5 frames (doesn't really matter, but a relatively short interval). Now let's say I want to SPACE each of these 100 images by 5 seconds (or 150 frames, at 30 fps).
So in summary, I have 100 unique, still images in my bin, all with a duration of 5 frames. I want to put them all in one video track but spaced apart by 150 frames. Is there any quick way to automate this process rather than having to manually space them one by one? Thanks.
Select all your photos in the bin, go to Clip > Speed/Duration, and enter the duration that you want your interval to be. In your example, that's 5 seconds/150 frames @ 30fps. They may already be this duration; I believe 5 seconds is the default still image duration in Pr.
Add your 5 second photos, all at once, to a sequence. Re-select all the photos in the sequence, right-click, and select Speed/Duration. This time, enter the final desired duration, e.g. 5 frames. Be sure the "Ripple Edit, Shifting Trailing Clips" option is NOT checked, and hit OK. All your selected photos will be shortened, and they'll leave gaps between them since you deselected the ripple option.
Thank you, Colin!
