Adjusting Speed with Time Remapping

Adjusting Speed with Time Remapping

By Maliek Whitaker

Learn how to speed up or slow down your video clips using the Time Remapping feature. Pinnacle Studio Pro Maliek gives you step by step instructions on how to ramp up or ramp down speed using keyframes and the time remapping tool. To access the time remapping feature select a clip on the timeline, then go to Editor > Time Remapping. You can choose between Anchor Frame and Stretch. When you select anchor frame, the speed will be adjusted so that whatever you choose as the anchor frame remains at the same position on the timeline. If stretch is selected, the speed will be adjusted so that the first frame and the last frame are always at the start and end of the clip.

Here is Maliek’s formula for calculating how much you can adjust the speed and still have smooth video. For this example he is using a timeline frame rate of 24fps and video clip frame rate of 60fps.

  • To slow down video: Timeline frame rate (24) divided by clip frame rate (60) = 0.4. This means that you can reduce the speed of your clip to 40% without losing video quality
  • To speed up video: Clip frame rate (60) divided by timeline frame rate (24) = 2.5. This means that you can increase the speed of your clip to 250% without losing video quality
