Placing a still image in Monet

I am a brand new user of Monet and am having trouble placing a still image into a tracked layer. I am using Monet ver. 2.1.2 on a MacBook Pro w/ Mac OSX 10.4.9.

The issue is that when I try to import a still via the insert tab it is imported as a single frame. When I try to increase the clip range it will not allow me to enter a value higher than one frame.

Do I have to first create an image sequence matching the length of my comp- in this case 221 frames- and then import the image sequence?

Also, if I attempt to import a QT movie via the insert function, Monet crashes every time.

I have also noticed that the Monet interface has changed substantially from the interface I see in the online tutorial/demo movies.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. And, yes, I have looked through the manual but the import of still images is not addressed anywhere that I can find.
