Time Remapping In Final Cut Pro

Time remapping, clips being played at variable speeds within a sequence, has become commonplace in television and film. Just think about it, every commercial promoting a car, countless music videos, In the post Matrix world what was once unique and curiously sleek has become a nut and bolt in every editor's tool box. But, I must admit, I still like it!

Time remapping gives you the ability to create smooth shifts between various speeds such as a punch being thrown at fast speed in a Steven Chow film and the impact being slowed down to emphasize the overwhelming force at which it was thrown. Skip the external compositor, because you can do it right within your edited sequences in Final Cut Pro.

These speed changes can be created in Four areas of the Final Cut Pro workspace; The Timeline, Motion Bar, Time Graph, and the Motion tab in the Viewer.

Tips

- Within the Timeline you can manipulate speed changes by utilizing theTime remap tool which will create a clip outline indicating which frame is being remapped to a specific time.

- On the Motion Bar, keyframes will appear that will allow for their selection and the ability to move forwards and backwards of the keyframes therefore, manipulating speed.
