1 Drag the blue position indicator over the original source clip in the timeline and choose 'matchframe' from the fast menu under the composer window. That clip should now be showing in the Source window.

2 Signify the place were you want to apply the effect by setting in and out points in the clip, then click on the 'motion effect' button at the bottom left of the composer window.

3 Choose variable speed in the dialog box at the top

4 Type in the percent of speed change you want (>100=faster speed, <100=slower speed)

5 Choose Interpolated field from the 'Render 2-Field Motion Effect Using' field

6 Click 'Create and Render' selection

7 Choose the bin you want to place the effect in

8 Click OK

The clip will show up in the bin and now all you need to do is cut it back into the time-line.
