Changing Clip Speed

You can adjust a clip’s speed parameters to create fast-motion or slow-motion effects. You can also add speed keyframes to change the speed of a clip over time.

Final Cut Pro offers several methods of creating speed effects. You can create speed effects using the Change Speed and Change Speed Segment dialogs, the Speed tool in the Tool palette, the keyframe graph area of the Timeline, the Speed parameter in the Motion tab of the Viewer, and the fit to fill edit feature.
