So I'm trying to move away from adobe premier elements to something else and I'm trying to edit a vid with Vegas. I race sailboats and use a GoPro Hero to film it but files get rather large since no off and on and off. Vegas seems to import these files quickly and I like that but what I'm trying to do is cut most of it out (4 hours of crap) and speed up the playback of the boring parts and slow down the panic faced dramatic areas. What I'd like to do is use the little yellow arrow selection tool to just modify playback for an time area I want but it seems if I change playback for a 40 second clip to 3x from 1x, it just plays 40 seconds of more video. It's like I didn't really cut anything but it looked liked I did and I just cant modify one little area without splitting the clip into two or more clips.
Hope this makes some sorta since but this is what I'm seeing and there isn't much on youtube to watch and the tutorials in help won't play.
Thanks for any help!!
