Thread: Movie Speed Up

  1. #1

    Default Movie Speed Up

    Hello Everyone,

    For a little video project i have recorded a 1.5 hour road trip.
    Now i would like to press everything in about 2 minutes.
    This will be the intro of my little movie.

    So the video rate must be increased by round 45 times (90 / 2).
    The current software I use can only increase the rate by 5 times.

    Can anyone advice me how to do this? Any help is greatly appreciated!
    I know it is possible, have seen it several times.

    Both Mac and PC solutions are possible, preferably Mac

    Kind regards,
    Patrick

    what software do you have?

    I use Adobe Premier Pro and you can speed things up to any length of time, you could use the trial version fro free for 30 days, more than enough time to speed up a clip and render it.

    smifis, many thanks for your quick response!

    Currently i'm only using iMovie on the Mac. It's really simple to
    use and can do everything i need. Imovie was also already on
    my Mac when i bought it. I'm absolutely no professional video editor.

    Currently i'm downloading the Premier trail for OSX.
    Seems to be exactly what i need.

    I've posted this vid a couple of times on here, and at the risk of being a bore I'll do it again... This was a two hour car journey compressed down to a little over four minutes.

    I used Sony Vegas, rubberbanded and processed with velocity envelope, rendered out and processed again. To achieve the massive time compression you're looking for may take a couple of gos. Mine was further complicated because I wanted to slow right down at a couple of junctions and tried to match to the music. More than a little forward planning was required and it took a while to get it just how I wanted.

    But it demonstrates it can be done. With no speed changes along the way, it's easy in Vegas.

    I uploaded a speeded up clip to YouTube recently and it made it really jumpy looking, if you are planning on doing that with your clip, just bear it in mind. I think it may have something to do with framerates.

    Strangely hypnotic Andy. Do you have a higher quality version?

    Wanted to see what it looked like on a big screen in all its glory (it fascinated me!)

    I recently bought Final Cut Express for the mac. It is really a big step up in capability from iMovie (and to be fair there is a learning curve) But worth the investment in time and money IMO
