I've got a few dozen photos, and I would like to add them to the VSE all at once, to make a slideshow. Normally, this turns them into a stop-motion-like sequence, but I still want the photos to be individual strips, about 3-5 seconds long. Is there an easy way to do this, via the UI or scripting? I could go digging in the Python docs, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel.
Thankfully, after adding an image sequence, one can break it up into individual images with Strip -> Separate Images [Y], and then enter how many frames each image should last. Scaling is another problem for now, since Image -> Apply -> Scale to fit seems to be only working for one image at a time, but this is a first step.
