I want to make video from multiple still photos (some kind of slideshow). When I drag&drop photos from media pool, they appear on timeline, but last too long. When I select all frames, press right mouse button and choose "change clip duration" I can set some value. Unfortunately, they are changing duration but stay at previous position leaving some gaps:

enter image description here

Are there any other ways to set duration of all frames to the same, fixed value (0.5 second for example), and at the same time keep them all together?

  • Just a note...in Resolve 15 the path is... Preferences > User > Editing > Standard still duration setting

You can use Edit > Delete Gaps

This will remove all gaps on all tracks. To exclude a particular track, you can lock the track before you Delete Gaps.

You can also change the default Image/Still duration before the import in the application Preferences > User > General > Standard still duration setting

  • thanks! I will try it out today and eventually mark this as best answer
