Have you ever wanted to customize the timing and speed of your clip? In Apple Final Cut Pro X, you have the ability to do so in the Custom Speed dialog box.

- While I'm a fan of dragging and dropping…and stretching clips dynamically,…like we just did in the prior section,…I think that there are a lot of times…where it's important to be able…to dial in a specific value.…And that's what the Custom Retime box does for us.…On my system here, I can click on a clip…and I can choose to show the Retime Editor, Command + R.…Under this drop-down, you'll see the word Custom,…and it brings up this box,…where we can say the direction of the clip…should be forward, backwards,…or we can give it a specific rate now.…I'm gonna slow down this clip.…
