Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 Essential Training: Importing Still images

Setting still image duration and scale By Antony Bolante

In Premiere Pro CS4 Essential Training, Antony Bolante provides a step-by-step, hands-on demonstration of a typical video editing workflow, from import to export. After creating a project and discussing how to configure settings based on editing goals, he shows how to gather and organize assets, including video files, layered Photoshop and Illustrator files, and footage captured from tape.

He applies basic editing techniques to assemble a rough sequence, then tightens and refines the edit while doing basic audio mixing. Titles, transitions, and effects are used to add a professional touch. Antony also discusses techniques for exporting the finished edit to disc, tape, and a variety of digital formats.

In this clip, host Antony Bolante discusses some of the issues that crop up when importing still images into Premiere Pro CS4. He notes that stills are just a single frame of duration but when in video the frame plays much longer. In Premiere Pro, the still frame on the Timeline is set to play by default, for five seconds. He shows how to change the duration in the general pane of the preferences dialog box.  He also covers setting a preference for still image scale.
