I can hold and drag each individual layer on timeline to increase its duration but it's such a pain. Is there a workaround to change (increase) all layers on timeline to have the same duration?

Thanks in advance!

This is a bit late, but...

You know how you can select multiple files by

  1. Choosing the first file
  2. Then holding down SHIFT key and choosing the last file
  3. Which then automatically selects all the files inbetween (inclusively) ...

You can do something similar here.

  1. Select the first frame you want
  2. Hold down Shift
  3. Then select the last frame you want.

This will select all the desired frames. All you have to do is then change the duration of one and it will apply to all selected.

For this to work, gotta be in "frame animation" mode vs. "timeline animation" mode

If I understand your question correctly, changing the fps setting will change all layers' duration proportional to the length of the clip. I was working on an animation that was intended to be part of a set of small multiples. I wanted different instances to move more quickly than others, so rather than getting all tweaky I changed the frames per second on the ones I wanted to go really fast, and the ones I wanted to go really slow, and exported them. It worked for my purposes, but again, I'm not sure that's what you're asking.

Thanks for the reply Linda. I basically ask how to make all layers end at 20:00f instead of say 11:00f without having to manually adjust each layer's duration. –  Julia Jul 25 '13 at 16:28
    
Drag your current time indicator to 20:00f, and select the layer. Then from the Timeline menu, select "Move Layer End Point To Current Time". You would have to do it on each layer, but it's more precise than dragging. helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/… –  LindaBrammer Jul 25 '13 at 18:57
