Time Compression in Smoke

Hi Everyone,

First time posting so I apologize in advance for any incorrect terminology. I work for a dub house that customizes long form infommercials (28:30). Some stations require shows that are 27:30, but the client won't allow us to remove any content. Normally we send the show out for Time Tailoring, which is a process that removes random frames but doesn't affect the quality. This has become an expensive way to do it. I've heard that smoke has a great time compressor built into it. Can anyone attest to this? are the results seamless? or is it more twitchy, like the time remapping in after effects? Thanks for your help.

I find that you can speed up anything in Smoke to 110% percent and it will still look normal. I do it all the time to make sound bites and things fit into a :30 sec promo.

You obviously need to speed things up much less than that. (about 2%)?

You can also speed up the audio the same about and smoke auto corrects for pitch.

I would download the demo for MAC and give it a shot to see if it works.
