Hi, this is probably a simple problem that I'm having because I'm new to after effects but I'm trying to slow down a clip I've imported from premiere.

its a 10 second clip that I'm trying to slow down using the timewarp plugin but instead of slowing down the clip, the footage is getting cut off instead. At 100% i see the full clip, anything lower and the footage starts getting shortened.

Sorry for the dumb question in advance, i've been trying to follow how it was shown in a video tutorial but I cannot figure out what i'm doing any different to not make this remotely work.

Yup. Make it 200% instead and see what happens.

If you don't precomp the footage first, it will cut off.

i've tried setting 'stretch' to 200%, doing the precomp thing by hitting ctrl+shift+c, tried prerenering too but still the same problem. The footage simply starts at an earlier point and no matter what I can't get the actual part that I want slowed down to show in the timeline.

Perhaps you haven't extented the composition to match the longer length. Here's an example of a super slow motion yet all frames are fully retained. Keep in mind, it was created for a timewarp 18fps and has timestretches in the output, so adjust accordingly in your project.

thanks for the help!

I tried pre-compose again and selecting 'move all attributes to new composition' option allowed me to adjust the time and control where in the clip the footage would slow down.

I'm glad I went through the hassle too btw, the footage rendered perfectly and they're so smooth that you'd think it was ramped on the camera!

Why jump through all those hoops? Just put the footage in the comp, set stretch for 200% and you're done, no precomposing needed.
