Can anyone tell me how to "fit to fill"

I have a clip that is about two seconds too short and I need to stretch the clip to fit. This was very easy in FCP using fit to fill, but I'm not sure how to do it in AVID.

There is a "Fit to Fill" edit button... it's a two headed arrow and if it isn't already mapped on your screen, you can find it on the command palette and map it to either your keyboard or screen. Mark an IN and an OUT on both the SOURCE clip and your timeline (obviously different durations) and then use the FIT TO FILL button. That will edit the clip running at the right speed into the timeline, but it doesn't give you a choice of how to render it for the desired quality.

If you then click on the motion effect button, right next to the "effect mode" button, to the left of the timeline, you will bring up the motion effect editor window where you can promote the motion effect to "Timewarp" where you will be able to choose a bunch of render modes, as well as choose input and out put interlace vs progressive modes. You also now have the entire capabilities of timewarp available to you.

I'm writing this from home without the application in front of me, so my nomenclature might not be perfect here. But the method is correct.

One last hopefully helpful bit of info. That "Fit To Fill" button is a RED double headed arrow.

Another method (with better quality)

Throw the clip into the timeline....2 seconds short. From the Timewarp category, drag the Trim to Fill to the clip. Get into trim mode. Double roller it to the length you want.

Get into Timewarp effect mode, make sure the render is Blended interpolated (or blended VTR) and render.

Best,
