Use keyframes to identify the sections of the video you wish to speed up. Click along the yellow line to insert keyframe and drag the node to the desired speed. Speed can vary between 10 to 500 percent relative to the original material. Anything under 100 percent is slow motion.To increase the speed of the entire clip, with your scrubber at the beginning of the clip, drag the scrubber on the right to your desired speed level. Right click on a keyframe to delete node. A clip to which Speed Control has been applied is marked by a broken yellow line. To achieve slow motion, new frames are interpolated between the original ones; for fast motion, some source frames are suppressed. Play the video on the preview window to check and make further modifications if needed.
