Salvage some still frames
October 27, 2010 10:39PM
I accidentally formatted my S x S xdcam card.
Using a product called Treasured i managed to salvage some of the footage.
There are several frames interspersed that i would also like to use.
Is there an easy way of making a 1-2 video frame shoot into 3-4 seconds.
I know that a still photo frame is 10 sec.

No, not true. Still-image files have no limit on duration.
To import stills so that they are longer than 10 seconds by default, go into User Preferences - Editing - Still/Freeze Duration and change the number. Subsequent imported stills (and FCP Freeze Frames) will have the new duration by default.

To extend a still after it's been imported, simply drag it out in the timeline to however long you need.

there's no real way to turn your few intermittent frames back into convincing video footage.

you can use them as still images and dissolve though them, but it will always be a stylised moment.
if that's no good to you, then either a re-shoot, or some creative editing to by-bass these shots, will be required.
