I'm making a film on Hitfilm 4 express. The timeline will only go to 30 seconds though. can you please help me?
In the project tab at the top of the window did you set the project duration to 30 seconds? Try going to that tab and manually entering the desire lenght like 00:05:00 (5 minutes)
It isn't.EDIT: I found out, its in preferences.
The Editor timeline will automatically increase its length to fit whatever video clips you add. If you are in a composite, then you define its duration when you create the comp, but can also edit it at any time by opening the composite shot properties.
