Hi Folks

Lately i have been having some weird stuffs happening in final cut...

thing is i select a clip and change its speed to 50% (modify -> change speed cmd+h) but the duration still remains the same, shouldn't it double

why is this happening

I'm sure you mean when you type cmd+j to change the speed.

In the window that opens, there is an option to ripple the sequence. If it's on, and you change the speed to say 50%, the length of the new clip will be twice as long as it was before. If it's off, you'll see the behavior you're reporting. So it's a setting, and actually a feature, because you can have the behavior be either way.

Hi,

I'm having this same problem, but the ripple sequence is unclickable and
also the duration part. Does anyone know why?
I'm working in a sequence that has two different kinds of film - one NTSC
and one HD and the sequence settings are set to the HD. Does this make
a difference?

Thanks
