Hi. I've had a problem with changing the length of imported stills. I go into User Preferences and have changed the Still/Freeze Duration to 20 seconds. But when I import any new images, they come in with a duration of 1 second. I have even restarted FCP and then checked to see that the preference is still set at 20 sec. Then imported new images and they all come in at 1 sec. AND I can't manually change the duration when the image is in the timeline.


Am I missing something here? These are photoshop files with transparent backgrounds, if that matters.


Thanks in advance!
