- While using the presets are nice,…the retime editor really lets me go in…and drag a clip to the exact lengths I want it to be.…I'mma go ahead in my system and select my clip.…And to the retime menu I'm gonna say,…show the retime editor.…That's command r.…And the moment I do so, you get that green bar that pops up.…We see the presets we saw before,…like slow and fast along with custom,…which we'll be exploring in a moment.…But I'm just gonna grab its edge,…and pull the clip longer.…And you'll see it goes sort of orange when it slows down.…
And I'll pull it backwards and it goes blue…when it's going faster.…I can select multiple clips and do this command r.…And we can go through and retime.…This is a great way of if you're working against music…to just edges of the clip, and keep the entire action.…Unlike trimming which will shorten our length in a clip.…We're able to sit back and say well I want this clip…a little bit slower, or a little bit faster.…I want this one a little bit slower.…And this one a little bit faster…
