say I had a slider from 1 to 20 with 1 being regular playback speed and 20 being 20 times that speed. IS there anything that will let me animate a a slider that controls the speed of a video. I think this would be easier than time remapping and if it does not exist than who can make it exist?

I've never used it in this way...but you might be able to do something with Effect>Expression Controls>Slider Control.

Maybe Timewarp effect and then Alt Click the speed stop watch and pick whip it to the slider control?

Sorry, I would do a test to confirm, but I'm here looking for an answer of my own and your question distracted me. :)

You know what I thought it would be easier than time remapping...but its not...when you change the speed of the clip the end point does not change like i thought it would...making it difficult to find the place in the timeline that i need to change

Have you considered doing the time/speed changes in Premiere? The downside is it's harder to make changes on the fly if you want to tweak the ins and outs of your slow down effect.

Maybe Dynamic Link between Premiere and AE can help you there though.
