Hello

I know that I can select a clip and then go to tools>power tools>video speed.
A window will pop up letting me choose the speed for the whole clip or a range of the clip.

How can I do the same for either two clips or a range of the two clips ?

I would want to see how two clips fit together and the most important moments are right at the intersection where I put the two clips together.

If I select a range on the timeline the tools option doesnt have power tools and video speed included.

And if I select two clips then the window doesnt pop up that lets me choose either the whole clip or a range.

I would want to see previews in slower speed around the intersections of two clips.

Thanks

You can only use video speed on one clip. What you can do is set video speed on the first clip then select the second clp and set the video speed on it. Then produce range of the two clips.

After you have produced range of the two clips you can put the produced clips on the timeline in an unused section then preview it with full control of the position of the cursor (Scrubber).

Hi,

Which version of PDR17 are you using?


If I understand your issue correctly, on PDR17 2514.2 you can select contiguous clips by using the shift key and select, or non-contiguous clips by using the ctrl key and select.

The Tools>PowerTools>VideoSpeed should work fine on all selected clips.

If you select a range that includes an image file then the Tools etc. option will not be open to you.

Cheers

I don't know which version I have but it must be the latest I just installed it a few days ago on a new pc.

When using the shift and/ ctrl keys to select multiple keys, the videospeed can indeed be used but the window doesnt pop up (it does pop up when only having one clip selected). That window gives acces to select a range which is what I want. I want to select a range of two clips so that I can preview it in slower speed. The range I want to preview is always right at the intersection of both clips. I want to view it in slower speed to really see if both clips fit together.

Hi FROMNOW -

You're right.

If you select multiple clips, you can go to Power Tools > Video Speed & change the speed of the clips...



BUT - if you want to use the "Selected Range" option, then it needs to be done one clip at a time.

PDR cannot select different ranges from multiple clips.

Cheers - Tony
