Speed up one track x 10?

Hi,

I have 100's of image files that when played in sequence animate eyes.  They are superimposed over a speaker that I'm bringing to life with the eyes. 

So track 1 is the speaker vid

track two is 100's of image files/eyes.

So so I need the video footage of the speaker to playback at normal speed, and the track 2 with the images to play back x10 faster.  Otherwise I'm going to have to adjust every frame/image shorter in the timeline.  Super hard to do.  I've tried selecting all but when I drag the image to a shorter time only the one changes length.

Is there a way to speed up one track?  Or a way to drag my images into the timeline with predetermined lengths of each image?  The stock time is a something like a secret per image.

Are you asking how to shorten several still photos at once?

If so, here's a trick that may work:

Lasso to select all of the still photos at once, right-click and select Time Stretch. Set the duration you'd like and Time Stretch will change the duration for the entire batch.

In General Preferences is a choice for the default still image duration in frames.  Set it before you add the stills media.  With some math, trial and error you might get track 2 with the stills to match.

Easier might be to create a video of the eye stills in a separate project.  Then that video could be placed on the timeline above the track with the speaker.  There are two tools in Premiere Elements that can change the length of the stills eye video, Time Stretch and Time Remapping. 

Good luck with your project!

If I create a separate video of the eyes, wouldn't that a solid layer?   Non transparent background?
