How to Use Time Remapping

You can adjust the speed for your video clips with keyframe precision, speeding up some scenes, and slowing down others. You can also reverse a clip to play it backwards.

To vary the speed of a video by using Time Remapping

1. In the Timeline, select the clip you want to adjust.

2. Open the Editor panel, click Time Remapping (appears towards the end of the Editor categories bar, you might need to use the scroll arrow to reveal it).

3. Click the Anchor Frame option.

In the Anchor area, choose one of the following anchor frames:

  • First frame
  • Current frame
  • Last frame

5. The anchor frame appears as a red marker in the Keyframe view. In the Keyframe view, position the scrubber where you want to add a keyframe and click the Add/Remove Keyframe button, and drag the corresponding node on the yellow speed line up (to increase the speed) or down (to decrease the speed). You can also set the speed for a keyframe by adjusting the Speed slider or by typing a precise value in the Speed box and pressing Enter.

6. Apply as many keyframes and speed changes to the clip as you want. Speed changes to clips are indicated by a yellow dashed line across the top of the clip in the Timeline.

To change the speed of an entire clip by using Time Remapping

1. In the Timeline, select the clip you want to adjust.

3. Click the Stretch option.

4. In the Timeline, click the end of the clip that you want to adjust, and drag the end to increase or decrease the length of the clip. The speed of the clip is adjusted accordingly.

    When I do any time remapping to speed up a clip, or make it shorter on the timeline, it gets really choppy, occasionally completely pausing in some areas. Is there a reason or fix for that?
