So I tried FCPX last night for the first time having read this. There were a couple of issues.
1. As mentioned the images come in at a default 10 second duration, but the default duration option seems to have been removed from the options
2. I selected all the images in a clip, hit Ctrl-D and 1 to set each to one frame. I then created a composite clip from all and dragged it to the timeline. It was exactly twice the expected runtime. Retiming to 200% gave me the correct frame rate but this seems like a lot of work if I have to repeat it for every clip.
Have I gone wrong somewhere?
Make sure you setup your project with the right frame rate the cdng's default to 60 fps, I don't know why that is.
Set it to the camera frame rate
, for me that's 23.976p
and all I do is make a compound clip, set duration to "1" that it.
There should not be any retiming Needed if you have to, then you did something wrong.
It a fairly quick process unless you try to bring in 10,000 frames at a time.
