I’m Ayana, a Vtuber!
Today, I will explain how to use the Time remapping function !
Changing playback speed, such as slow motion or fast forward, is called Time Remapping. We can emphasize the important scenes by applying Time Remapping to them.
Apply Time Remapping function
I will apply Time Remapping for this clip.
Enable Time Remapping
First, right-click the layer to which you want to apply the Time remapping. Then from Time ->select Enable Time remapping.
Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+Alt+T on the keyboard to apply the Time remapping.
Time Remapping has been applied to the layer!
After selecting Enable Time remapping, the property of the Time remapping is added to layer properties like this.
After applying Time Remapping, keyframes will be automatically created for the beginning and the end frames in the timeline. The value of the Timeline Remap property is timecode.
Change playback speed by Time Remapping
Now let’s change the playback speed using the time remapping.
Move the playhead to the frame that you want to change the speed of and create the keyframe.
Please note that when creating keyframes, click the stopwatch button when creating the first keyframes. But when you click the stopwatch button while the keyframes have been already present, all keyframes will disappear.
Control the playback speed by Time Remapping
Method 1 : Adjust timecode values to create slow motion or fast forward
Change the value of the Time Remapping property. If we make this value faster than the real timecode, it will become slow motion, and in contrast, if we make this value slower than the real timecode, it will become fast forward!
In this case, the timecode for the key frame position is 3 seconds, but if you change this value to 1 second, the part before the keyframe takes 3 seconds to move the frame for 1 second, so it becomes slow motion, and the rest of the clip gradually returns to normal speed.
Let’s click the Play button on the preview panel to check how it looks like.
Method 2 : Move the added keyframe to adjust slow motion or fast forward
When applying Time Remapping keyframes will be automatically created at the beginning and the end of the video. If you add a keyframe in between and drag the keyframe to the left, the part before the keyframe becomes fast forward and the part after the keyframe becomes slow motion.
Here I will drag the keyframe added to the 4-second position to the 1-second position. Then it will be fast forward from 0 second to 1 second, and slow motion from 1 second to the end.
Click the Play button on the preview panel to see how it looks like.
Stop movement by Time Remapping
Setting the timecode value of two keyframes to the same value will stop movement between the keyframes. This is called Stop motion.
This time, the keyframe is set to the 3-second position, and then set the timecode of the keyframe at the 5-second position to 3 seconds. In this case, the video stops for two seconds, from 3 to 5 seconds, and then gradually returns to normal speed until the end point.
Click Play button and you can see the movement like this.
This is the end of the lecture on how to use Time Remapping function.
How is everyone doing?
