You can set your video in slow motion to emphasize a movement, or set it to play at lightning speed and give your movie a comical air. You can also use this feature to achieve time-lapse and strobe effects on your videos and photos.

He’ll show you the three ways you can do this – using your cursor to stretch the clip out on the timeline, using the variable speed option by adding key frames and adjusting their speed, or by using the speed/time-lapse option to increase or decrease the playback speed on the entire clip.
