Changing the Duration of Stills or Titles in the Timeline

“I have a lot of stills or titles in the Timeline, and I want to change the durations of all of them. Do I have to do each one separately?”

For still images, whether graphics, photos, or titles, you don't have to do them individually.

Select all the titles or stills you want to change.

Control-click on any of the selected items and from the shortcut menu choose Duration.

Change the duration to whatever you want and all the selected items will change.

This only works for stills and titles, but not unfortunately for titles created using Boris Calligraphy. It will not work for video clips or audio, which do have to be done individually.
