Chapter 8. Editing Video > Changing Playback Speed

Changing Playback Speed

Creating sped-up or slow-motion imagery used to involve changing a camera’s shutter speed (the faster the film moved, the more individual pictures could be shot, creating slow motion, for example). In iMovie, all you have to do is move a slider.

To speed up or slow down video:

1.
Select the clip you wish to alter in the Timeline Viewer.

2.
Move the Clip Speed slider toward the rabbit icon (to speed up) or the turtle icon (to slow down). The clip contracts or expands in the Timeline to indicate its new duration as you move the slider (Figure 8.22).

Figure 8.22. As you increase the Clip Speed slider, the clip shrinks to indicate how much time it occupies.
