Time remapping - tutorial?
by Matt Dragovits on Aug 3, 2012 at 2:06:20 am
I have a lower third animation that I need to speed the time up on. I'm a relatively new user to Avid (former FCP'er) I see various filters available but I'm not sure which is the best or even how to really use them. Is there a tutorial online or in the archives anywhere that can show me how to make an 8 second chyron remap down to about 5-6 seconds?

The problem with this in the Avid world is that Media Composer treats keyable clips as two separate clips, fill and key, collapsed down into what looks like one track. So read up on timewarp in the help files, and you may want to make use of Fit and Fill. But you will eventually have to apply the speed change to both of the tracks by stepping into them. It can be an annoying process. If anyone has any better ideas, I'd love to hear them
