    Very nice effect and perfect timing. I just saw this effect demonstrated on line using another program and was about to figure it out using my Corel Video Studio Software. Thank you!

    Nice trick, I’ll have to try it.

    To speed up the clip you can hold down SHIFT and drag the end of the clip to the left.
