Hi, welcome to the Magix forums.

I'm not entirely sure what it is you are trying to achieve but I think, from what you write, that you are attempting to alter the length of a transition. Is that correct?

If so, and also assuming your video runs at 30fps, that figure of 0.29 which you quote refers to the length of the transition in frames per second. At 30 fps, the transition of 0.29 will take fractionally less than one second to complete; one more frame will make the change last for 1 second. Hence you cannot set any figure between 0.29 (frames per second) and 1 second (30 frames per second).

If I have guessed wrongly what you are trying to do please post back with more details about exactly what it is you are trying to do. The content of this post https://www.magix.info/us/forum/please-do-the-following-before-posting-your-question--621831/ is a good place to start to see all the information which will help us, fellow-users, to help you.

My 'video' consists of 40 still images, either .jpg or .png. I am not using video clips in my project.

I want to control the display time of the images.

I can edit the display time of each image by double-clicking the timer that is embedded there. I can set the display time for anything greater or equal to 1 second and anything less than or equal to .29 seconds.

Hope this clarifies the issue.

Thanks.

Hi. Thanks for the additional information, though you have still not said which specific program and version you are running, nor anything about your computer.

However, my response is still the same. The display timings for each individual image are shown relative to the "speed" at which the exported file, your final video, is to play. At 30 frames per second, anything 0.29 or below, will display for less than one second. Anything above 1 second, will increase the display time above that amount. You cannot enter ANY figure between 0.29 and 1 since the program will not recognise it; similarly anything between 1.29 and 2, 2.29 and 3, etc., etc..

I realise this is not entirely intuitive! If you want an image to display for, say, two minutes 30 seconds, you need to enter (as per your screenshot), 00:02:15, literally 2 seconds and 15 frames (at 30 frames per second, 15 frames = 0.5 seconds). 10 seconds would be 00:10:00, 2 minutes would be 02:00:00.

Sorry for delay in this response, which is to thank you. I get it now and am happily counting minutes in increments of 30. Thanks again.

Hi

@midisparks

The Video Easy time display is a little confusing because it only quotes seconds when in reality it is actually quoting minutes:seconds:frames as can be seen in this image from Photostory version of the same dialog.
