    playback speed, can it be changed?

    Hi, not sure if this is possible in SE but can i have a clip or sequence of clips playback faster than normal for example I want to have a driving down the road clip play back about 5 times faster to give it a time lapse look?

    Thanks

    sure...

    select the clip - hit f8, where it says speed 100%, change it to 500% or any other number, then hit enter & play it. You can also drag the beginning or the end of the clip with shift key down and it says 'Stretch' instead of the usual IN or OUT point editing, which gives you control to stretch the clip visually, with the same result.

    Would that really give an authentic time lapse look?

    It wont look too good when you play it slower than 70 or 80%. SE does not do interpolated slow mo so it duplicates frames and looks stutterish. I use Vegas Pro to do my slo mo.

    Actually...i believe SE 2.0 has interpolated SLOW MO

    I could be wrong but I thought it did not include it. That, along with lack of 64bit and Multicam is what kept me from upgrading to 2.0.

    Ok, it worked just as i wanted I ended up going with a speed setting of 1000% and it does not playback smoothly but my guess is that it will render correctly once put on a BluRay?

    You are playing it 10x faster than it is. It should probably look the same on tv as you see in the timeline

    I tried 6x faster and it played smooth but any faster its acting like the hard drive cant keep up so Im thinking it will render ok.

    Right click it and only render that piece and see what it looks like. THere's no reason to wait until you author and burn to BD to find out.

    Interpolated slo-mo was one of the features added in the 2.0 release. Not only is there interpolated slo-mo, but there are two different algorithms available.

    Wow. I had no idea about the interpolated slo mo. That was my biggest resistance to upgrade. Do you do it by using F8 and slowing the % of the playback or is there a different way to do it?

    Changing playback hasn't changed (stretch or change in the properties by hitting F8). The choice of no interpolation, or the two interpolation modes is done in the control tree, near the settings for subsampling and scaling quality.
