FCP X: Replace Clip and Retime Duration to Fit [video]
[This is an excerpt from a recent on-line video webinar: “FCP X: Clip Speed Effects” which you can download in our store, or as part of our Video Training Library.]
Changing clip speed (also called “retiming”) can create dramatic effects – from high-speed time-lapse to extreme slow motion. Final Cut Pro X provides a wide-variety of techniques to change the speed of a clip, including:
- Freeze frames and hold frames
- Replace and Retime a Clip to Fit
- Fast- and Slow-motion
- Conform clip speed
- Variable speed changes
- Special speed effects
During this session, Larry Jordan illustrates dozens of ways to change the speed of a clip, starting with a very simple hold frame in the Timeline, then moving into far more flexible – and weird – speed effects.
In this short video excerpt Larry shows how to change the speed of a clip during a Replace edit, so that the durations of the two clips match.
