I want a movie of stills, so I set the default still duration to TWO seconds.
Then they all come in at 1.29 seconds.  Now what?

Bruce is correct. The tool tip that says "Duration: 00;00;01;29" should be read as "0 hours, 0 minutes, 1 second, 29 frames". Your timeline is set to 29.97 frames per second (fps) which for sake of this discussion we can pretend is 30fps. In a given second of your timeline, the first frame is 0 and the last frame is 29, for a total of 30. So for a duration of 02;00, the last frame would be counted as 01;29. I see what you mean though – if you set it to 2 seconds, you get a clip that is 01;29...

1.29 sounds like exactly the right number of frames, for your specified duration...

Thank you, so why wouldn't

that be 60 frames?  2 sec x 30 fps

 

here is another confusion, timeline says 2 sec,

clip says 1.29 something

Sorry, I meant that PPro might be presenting the value incorrectly; 1.29 could be an attempt to convey "one second's worth of frames, plus 29 more frames".

I see what you mean though – if you set it to 2 seconds, you get a clip that is 01;29 rather than 2;00. For now as a workaround, try this: change the setting to 60 Frames. That seems to work for me.  Thanks for letting us know!
