Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting speed with Timewarp, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
Another great way to retime footage without having to precompose or even…prerender is by using the Timewarp effect. So, let's go to the 03_Pass composition…and apply our Timewarp effect to a new adjustment layer.…So, let's go Layer > New > Adjustment Layer.…And then go to Effect > Time > Timewrap. The default settings for Timewrap…automatically adjusts the speed down to 50% playback.…And if you scrub through, notice we get kind of these warping, blurring effects.…
This is happening because the default setting for the method is pixel motion.…Timewarp is looking at each individual pixel of our composition and trying to…move the pixels accordingly to slow down the footage.…Now, since our image is made up of such high contrast graphics and numerous…graphics at that, pixel motion isn't the best answer.…Let's switch our settings to frame mix. Now with frame mix we have options for our…speed. So, just so we can see where we are in our…composition let's change the setting for speed up to 100%.…
This way we'll know exactly where we are when we start the retiming process.…
