Custom speed change?
on May 2, 2013 at 9:20:32 pm

Hello everybody!

This might sound very stupid..I am new in FC X and can't find the way to CUSTOM change the speed of a clip..i don't want 2X or 4X...i want like a 15-20% faster...i only find the way to speed up from 2X and up (fast)and the slow options...is it possible custom speed up or down or i am stuck with this FC X?

With FC7 is so easy I can't believe FC X does it difficult for you...

thanks to all!

Put the clip on a non-primary track. Select the clip and make it 2x or whatever. Whichever you choose doesn't matter. Then, once the speed is changed, you'll have a retiming bar at the top of it. Drag that to whatever length/speed you like.

It's pretty dang easy :).

Oh, and when you're done. Go back into the speed change menu arrow and under video quality, play with frame blending or optical flow. Sometimes those provide really awesome results.

There's actually and even easier way to change a clip's speed in FCPX. Just put the clip anywhere in your timeline. Select the clip and hit CMD+R (retime) on the keyboard. A little bar will appear over your clip and you can just grab it and make it longer or shorter to your taste.

Also, optical flow is just a much smoother interpolation when FCPX has to create new frames (for slo-mo'd clips) not sure it'll do you much good on sped up clips.

Oh, right. I was thinking you were slowing clips down. Think of Optical Flow as a smoothing option to help offset slow motion stuttering (like Twixtor in After Effects).

Are there ease in or ease out controls for the speed? I can't find them. I just installed FCPX yesterday so I am working through the changes from 7.

Thanks
