    Default Help please! Speeding/Slowing Clips down in Sony Vegas 7.0??

    Ok, I have the full version of vegas and for the life of me I can't find out how to speed up clips or slow them down... is it blatantly obvious and I'm a fool? Help please!

    There are two ways to play around with an event's playback speed. If you hold down the CTRL button and drag the end of a clip in, it will speed it up or if you drag it out it will slow it down. This obviously affects the amount of timeline time that the event takes up.

    The second is to use a velocity envelope. Right-click on an event and choose Insert/Remove Envelope-->Velocity. Drag the evelope up to speed it up and down to slow it down.

    Caveat: This maintains the absolute time of the event on the timeline. 10 timeline secs will be 5 events secs if the event is at 50% playback. If you speed it up, extra time will be taken from the underlying media if necessary or you will end up with a freeze frame. Keyframeable as well.

    Hope that's of some help.

    EDIT: forgot to say that setting a negative velocity will playback in reverse.
