Hi,

How do you extend an effect duration past 100 frames. Say you wanted it to run for 10 seconds. ie: a lens flare?

Thanks

You can also type in a duration in the inspector when you create a new effect, so it is created at the length you desire. Alternately, you can use the crop tool on the timeline to drag either end of the effect as far as you want.
