Is it possible to import a series of digital still images shot to record
a stop-motion animation into the Photoshop Extended animation film/video
timeline and set the duration of each still image to 2 frames so that
the timeline can then be rendered into a single movie clip?
Thanks for any advice.

I have CS3 Extended but have never tried anything other than retouching
photo to know what or how well it handle the video. But I have been dealing
with video daily in the past 5-6 years so I know some about video.

Even I don't create video slideshow daily, but in the warm months (when
more people getting married, graduated, and dying etc. when when I was still
healthier) then I sometime create several video slideshows a week/month. And
I use the program call ProShow Gold to do the job and I like ProShow Gold
over few others I have tried (they are pretty much the same, except ProShow
Gold offers more transitions as well as animated caption etc.).

Yes, there are much more expensive and even freeware, but I don't know
much about other to recommend. Or I just give you the idea about ProShow
Gold which you can find out what it's then find the one suits your need.

I have used Adobe Premier for this. But I think it is possible to make
an animation in CS3 by this method.

Look to CS4 Extended for such capabilities.

this is for CS3, but it should work in 4 too.
