An advanced technique for retiming your clip is to combine whatever preset you are using with the Range tool. What is the Range tool and how does it impact the speed of your clip? In this movie, author Jeff Greenberg discusses what the range tool is and walks you through how to use it to impact the timing of a clip in Apple Final Cut Pro X.
- For me, one of the most amazing combination…of tools is using the range tool…with all of our re-timing capabilities.…Remember, the range tool, letter R,…allows me to select a portion of the clip.…When you combine this with the re-time tool,…this allows you to set all sorts of speed ramping changes,…all sorts of preset changes,…quicker and easier than any other piece of software I know.…Take a look at my timeline here.…I'm just gonna zoom in a little bit more.…Command plus, I'm gonna see this playback.…And just watch him jump over with that heel click.…
I'm gonna go R for the range tool.…Find the heel click.…Click and drag, hold down.…I don't need to go to the menu,…but I will this first time.…And I'm gonna hit a command R for the re-time menu.…And choose something like...…Slow it down by 50%.…Did you see how it broke it into a range?…How we've got a range here in the front.…Of normal speed.…A range in the middle of slowed down.…And a range at the end.…Well with those in combination,…I can choose this to be any speed I want it.…
