You need to change the duration of the Logo. You can simply drag the edge of the Logo in timeline to set the duration. Or, you can double click the Logo in the timeline, and then click the Set Duration icon in the toolbar, and then set the duration in the pop up window. Let me know if that works for you, Benjamin.

Probably a stupid question. When I add a still picture to the video, it appears for only about one frame. I want a still picture to appear for 20 seconds. There seems no way to "stretch" it out to 20 seconds. What is the trick?
