Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Retiming clips to create speed effects and creating freeze frames, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
Speeding up or slowing down clips in Final Cut Pro is nothing new, but the way…they've re-designed retiming a clip makes it a lot more elegant.…Let's step inside the Retiming project and take a look at how it our works.…I've only put three clips in my timeline because I really want you to focus on…retiming the clip without having to be bothered by all the other clips and…finding the exact location.…The clip that we're going to work with is this center clip,…broll_dance_rehearsal.…I actually put three clips in the timeline, because I want you to see how the…clips are rounded or affected when you speed up or slow down the middle clip.…
Now if I want to do a time change to this clip, I could use the keyboard…shortcut Command+R. I'll go over here to the drop-down menu and use one of the defaults.…Now at first blush, it looks like I can only slow a clip down to a defined…percentage of 50%, 25%, or 10%, and speeding up, again I'm limited to four options.…This is not the case.…Let's take a look how speed retiming works in Final Cut Pro X.…
