Speed Up and Slow Down Parts of Your Video Using Clip Speed

Sometimes there are long processes that are important, but they don’t need to be seen in real-time.

Clip speed allows you to play a video clip faster or slower than its natural pace. To apply the clip speed effect, click and drag it from the tools panel to a clip on the timeline.

Open the effects tray and drag the clip speed handles to adjust the speed of a clip.


Properties > Adjust Clip Speed

Another option is to select the clip on the timeline with clip speed added, and adjust the speed in the properties panel.
