|Summary||0000255: Improve timelapse photo import|
|Description||If you add a still image to a track, each image is expanded to 3 seconds. In spite of what it says in the manual, I have not been able to change it in the Settings->Preferences->Recording screen, and I don´t find that a very logical place for it anyway. Loading a file (video or still image) is not really recording. If one imports hundreds of time-lapse pictures e.g. from a GoPro camera, it is very time-consuming to adjust each one to the desired number of frames.|
It is possible to get it to one frame/picture using an external file (using the ffmpeg method), but that is much less convenient than what is possible in Adobe Premiere or Davinci Resolve.
Suggestion for improvement:
1) Make an extra ¨still image¨ tab in ¨Settings->Preferences¨ where you can set the number of frames an imported image should take.
2) Allow an edit of a track resulting from still images, so that each image can be set to a desired number of frames. I´m not sure this is even possible, how do you define the start of each original image after the loading? Say you have at first each image set to expand to 10 frames, and later decide to make it 8. You need to be able to find the original images. Solution 1) above might be easier, change the setting and load them again.
Note that images can be jpeg or mjpeg. The GoPro files I got were named .jpg but are actually mjpeg, and you have to set ¨try FFMPEG last" on order to load them.

|I have corrected the manual here locally and will get Andrea's Latex version updated when time prevails.|
Thanks, that works. The manual (5.2.1) says to set it in the Settings->Preferences->Recording window. So that needs correcting.
Using a sub-second time duration gives you nice control over the speedup. Very nice.
Issue closed for me.
Settings->Preferences, INTERFACE tab -- uncheck "Import images with a duration of X Seconds" or change the X to 1 second or another number.
¨Try FFMPEG last" is often necessary -- we routinely use this for our vacation photos on an inexpensive sony camera and for DVDs. The mpeg code in Cinelerra is very robust and still better than that of ffmpeg.
