lengthening a video clip
Reply to this topic
[Post New]
I have a brief showcase video of one of my pieces in rotation. I want to lengthen the time of the video. It's ok (in fact, preferable) if the rotation be slowed down as the video time is expanded. How can I lengthen the run-time of a video? [PD11, Win8]

Hi,
Select the video clip, and put the 'cursor" at the end on the timeline (you should see a 2-way arrow) now drage to the length you want.

You forgot one detail, if the video is complete, you must hold down Ctrl to stretch the video, will create slow motion AMD-FX 8350 / 8GB DDR3

Thanks very much, playsound. Yours was the missing step needed to lengthen and slow down my video.

Thanks, too, james1 for taking the time and interest to respond.

I just read this older post and didn't know this was possible either. You do learn something all the time! I would have gone through a much longer and time consuming process.

Nice tip! Thanks Playsound!

Thought I would bump this helpful tip!

What Robert and Kevin said....

That would be cool to split a small section from a clip and have that portion go s-l-o-w m-o and then normal again.... I think I will go look.....
