1. Intro to Module 10: Let's play with speed in this module of the Adobe premiere pro masterclass, we're going to learn how to adjust time doing time, remapping, slowing down footage, speeding up footage, adding speed ramps. All right within this module, download the practice files for this module in the project tab of this course, and also enroll in all of the other modules of this complete master class so you can become a proficient video editor in Premiere Pro from start to end, you can get to those modules through the course description or by searching for Adobe Premiere Pro Masterclass on Skill. Scher. Let's get into playing with time. 2. Edit Clip Speed (slow-motion, reverse, speed ramps): in this tutorial, we're going to learn how to adjust the speed of a clip. There's multiple ways to do it and I'll show you a couple of them. Here we have this time lapse or not really a time lapse, but just a very long shot that I recorded in the Alps. It's three minutes, actually. So not that long. But if we speed it up to a few seconds, we'll be able to see the movement of the these clouds even better right now. If you sit through it, you can barely see any movement. So we want to speed this up. One of the easiest ways to do that is just simply right clicking, going to speed, slash duration. And this brings up this speed slash duration panel. Right now the speed is set to 100% and you see the duration down here. We can increase this to say 2000%. And when you do that, you see the duration down here changes well. Say you know specifically that you need this clip to be just three seconds. You can literally click and drag to the left or right down here, or you can go in, click at once and type in T speed that you want. You also see here that you can reverse the speed if you want to make something reverse. If there is audio and there's someone talking, you can maintain audio pitch. But checking this box Otherwise, if you speed something up, people's voices will get really high. Or if you slow down, people's voices will get very low. So this has a way of actually maintaining the pitch of a voice or of the audio. Even with a speed adjustment a long time ago, it seems like now we learned about Ripple edits and shifting, trailing clips if you check this, but in all of the clips to the right of this one will jump to the left. So right now, I don't have any of other clips on this timeline. But if I did have a bunch and I did make this a lot shorter by checking this box, it will move all these clips to the left after it makes this clip shorter. So I'm just going to leave those unchecked for now. Select. Okay, you see what happens is our clip got really short, so Let's go play through this, see what it looks like, and there's a little bit of a stutter, but it does a pretty good job to room. Move that stutter and render out this effect or any effect. You can do that by going up to sequence. Render in to out. Once I do that, you'll notice that this yellow bar up here becomes green. A yellow bar means that your computer can probably play through it, but there is an effect applied to it, and it's not rendered out. A green bar means that there isn't effect on there, but it has been rendered in a red bar means that there's an effect on there that won't play because it needs to be rendered out. So if there's red bars after you apply it at an effect, so let's just say Let's odd this Let's do this warp stabilizer. So if I type warp, which will learn about in future lesson, if I add this, you'll see that it not only it can't be used when I speed up a clip, but there's this red bar that needs to be rendered out. I'm gonna undo that. So that's how you speed up a clip or slow down a clip, gonna undo that all, and I'll show you a different way that you could speed up clips. If you click on any clip, go up two effects controls you see under motion and opacity, this time remapping option. This allows you to literally remap the time speed up, slow down, even change from slow to fast. We'll learn about that in the next lesson with speed ramping. But if you drop down this button right here, you have this bar that you can decrease or increase, and by doing that, it speeds up or decreases the video itself. You'll notice, though, that there is a limit to 1000 with time remapping. And to get that three second clip, we had to do the right click speed duration option so that we can go pass 1000%. It was like 6000 or something like that. You'll also notice now, though, that I have 1000 speed adjustment via time remapping. But the clip speed duration it's thinks that it's at 100% even though it's still speed it up so you can kind of duplicate these used these two effects to increase the speed more than the limits. Okay, so those are the two ways that you can increase or decrease the speed of a clip. We're going to be looking at the time remapping in the next lesson to do some speed ramps where we speed and then slowed down into some sort of action. Thanks for watching, and we'll see you in that lesson. 3. Time Remapping & Speed Ramps Tutorial: in this lesson. We're going to learn about speedy ramping, changing the speed of a clip in the middle of that clip. And we're going to be re creating this kind of effect with this clip. Where I walk into this frame, fast slows down, speeds up, my friend John walks and it slows down when he gets into the frame. And then it speeds up as he walks out of the frame. And I just kind of loop this clip or duplicated so it looks like it's looping. The original clip just looked like this. I'm walking through the frame on a hike up in Big Bear. And then there's a long pause and and John walks through the frame. It's a little bit more dynamic, and it doesn't work for every type of video, but for something that's a little bit more fun and upbeat, something like this looks a little bit better. Okay, I'm just gonna move these over to the right and bring in this clip right here. We're going to be using this time remapping tool right here. So go to your effects controls. With this clip selected, we're going to be setting key frames where the speed will change right now, the key frame. There are no key frames and it's set at 100. So you kind of got a plan this out beforehand. So set key frames where you want the speed adjustment to change. I want the speed to go fast here up until about this point where I reached this edge of this tree. So I'm going to set a key frame there, going to go forward till right about there when I'm on that side of the tree. So said another key frame that I'm going to go all the way until John hits that part of the tree, said a key frame and go a little bit further and said a key frame. Then let's drop down this menu so we can adjust the speed by increasing or decreasing this line. We can adjust the speed. So for this first part I'm going to increase it, just clicking and dragging up. Once I let go, we see that this part is faster than this part, so let's play through it. That's pretty good. I might want a little bit foster so something like that, then I'm just going to click this line and drag it up just about the same amount. It's kind of about the same level, maybe even faster this time, because there's a longer pause, something like that. And then with this last one again, just drag it up. That's pretty darn cool. We're going to do one more things in this clip because right now it's going from fast and then all of a sudden, slow, fast, all of a sudden slow. This little icon right here allows us to separate by clicking and dragging to the right or left. And what that does is it ramps the speed so it doesnt abruptly go from 360% to 100%. Now it ramps down, so there's sort of a transition. I'm going to do that with all of these key frames to make that ramp, make the motion feel a little bit more natural. So let's play through this now fast, slow. When John appears on the screen, it's a little bit too fast, so I'm just going to drag this in just a little bit less of a ramp. We see a little bit more of him walking, so this is a really cool effect that you can add two videos. You see it a lot in action sports, where there's a surfer and skateboarder and they're doing a trick. And then they slow down when they hit the top of the wall or do that 3 60 or whatever it is . It's a very cool effect to do for sports, but also just for fun videos, fund montages like this video that I'm making right now. Thank you for watching. And if you have any questions, let me know. 4. Slow Motion Video by Interpreting Video Frame Rate: If you're shooting at a high frame rate, you might want to actually convert that footage to a lower frame rate to slow it down rather than using one of the speed effects. To do so, find the clip in your project. Been go up to clip, modify interpret footage. This will bring up the modify clip window. Right now, it's using the frame rate from the file 59.9 for one we want to choose assumed the frame rate is then set the frame rate to your project sequence settings. For us, we're going to do 23.976 or maybe for you it will be 29 97 Do you all of these the same and click OK, what happens is now the frame rate changes down here to 23.976 and when we play through it , it's in slow mo. And actually the in an out point of our clip changes once we do that modification. So we might have to extend the clip and find the space again, and now, actually changing it to the frame rate allows us to get the slowest motion footage without it becoming stuttering without seeing the individual frames of the video. If you shoot at 59 94 and you slow it down to 23 976 it's still going to look smooth. It's going to be nice and buttery. Slow motion. Love it. And I like this shot a lot more than the shop before, which was a little bit shaky. Now you don't see as much of those shakes, and that's one of the tricks that you can do with slow motion. So that's how you conform or interpret higher frame right footage into a lower frame rate for your project. Thanks, and we'll see in another lesson. 5. EXERCISE: Add Speed Ramps to Video: I've got a fun practice for you today. I want you to take this drone shot, which you can download in the resource is and make it on Lee five or six seconds long using a speed ramp using the speed ramp effect under time. Remapping under the effects controls. I want you, Teoh, make this shot more dynamic. It's really cool. Shot. My buddy Sam shot it. Great shot. Zoom out from Anthony and Larne e from their hammock. And then it ends with this great tilt to the city of Redlands where they live. I really love it, but it's just too long. And sometimes you're in a situation when you're editing a film where you have a five or six seconds spot where you need a clip and you have the perfect clip. But it's just too long. So what do you do? Do you just speed it up? That might be weird. Do you just cut parts of it? Do you try to shore in it by jump cutting it from the beginning to the end? Or maybe you make it more dynamic with ah, Speed Ram, I want you to try to make it look like this slow, fast, then slow in the tilt up. So it starts out slow. Then it zooms up fast through the tilt, and then it slows down at the end of the tilt. I'll show you what I did in the next lesson to get this kind of effect. But go ahead, practice with the clip and try to replicate this motion that I did right here. Thanks for watching. And we'll see then. 6. EXERCISE REVIEW: Add Speed Ramps to Video: Hey, how do you do? Let's dive into the effects that I used under effects, controls and time remapping. You can already kind of see what I did have this speed ramp that goes from 100%. And then right when the motion of the drone starts to lift off all the way through, sort of the middle of the tilt up. It's going at 1000% and then it slows back down to 100. I was trying to play around with it, see if it worked better to slow down before the tilt up or slow down after I thought it worked right in between. And then I extended sort of the ramping. So it was a little bit slower and more natural. Well, not natural, cause this is totally unnatural, but at least a little bit smoother. So hopefully got something like that. Maybe you came up with something completely different, and if you did send it my way, I would love to check it out. Thanks for watching, and we'll see you in the next lesson. 7.
