Setting Delays for a Composition

Think times can be set for an entire composition by the use of random, multiple, and override delays in the Composition Editor that will override or adjust delays for all the tracks (and therefore, all of the test clips) within a given test composition.

How to

  1. To set delays, click the Properties tab in the Composition Editor.
  2. Click the Composition node in the Property list. The composition-wide properties open in the panel on the right.
  3. Click the Delays tab.

What you should see

Just as in the Clip Editor, check Override Delay settings to set overrides for all the test clips within the track, and/or check Adjust the individual Delay settings to add duration or to set a maximum duration.

To adjust delays already defined in the composition, select Adjust the individual Delay settings and then check one or both of:

  • Adjust duration by:

Enter an additional number of milliseconds to existing delays

  • Maximum duration:
  • Enter a maximum value in milliseconds for existing delays.

For example, to add 10 seconds to all delays, check Adjust duration by: and then enter 10000. To specify a maximum duration for the adjustment (or for the specific values already in the test clip), check Maximum duration and then specify a max value for all delays.
