I would love to be able to tell the image sequence dialog to hold each image for a certain number of frames. Is there another way to achieve this or have they added the feature? I am currently using version 6.

Two ways I do it, there may be others...

If you skip numbers in an image sequence, LW will hold the last number used until the next image sequence number matches a frame number-
example pic01.jpg, pic02.jpg, pic10.jpg
LW will hold pic02.jpg for each frame until frame 10

if you need to stretch a long sequence, you can bring your movie into your editing program (Premiere, etc.) and stretch it in time, then export it as frames... it'll generate each frame as multiples for however long you stretch it.

I'd like to be able to envelope the frame extenxion, so I can zip forward and backward through frames at will in the animation.
