  • Slo-mo timeline

    For me, one of the endless conflicts between genuine creativity and client satisfaction is their desire to have the summary programme (we market it as the Dream Wedding) in slo-mo.

    In Liquid, my previous NLE I would drag the selected clips alternately to two timelines, and, after ensuring that there was enough space between clips, applying a slo-mo effect to each timeline. This extended the duration of each clip after which it was merely necessary to drag clips from one timeline back into their place in the original and add transitions, again as a batch.

    It appears I cannot do this in Edius, the slo-mo speed adjustment applied to an individual clip or a number in a timeline adjusts the speed but not the duration. I realise I can adjust the duration also by applying the slo-mo to each clip separately but that's tiresome and inefficient.

    Have I missed something or is there another method? Ideally I'd like to be able to put all the clips on one timeline and apply slo-mo to all the clips, with the clips expanding on the timeline yet keeping their sequence and not "overlapping" on to the adjacent clip but that might be expecting too much.

    it works very fast here and you may have forgotten to tick an option
    slowing many clips in one hit

      No Anton, I'd forgotten to think more intelligently - it's an excellent workflow and of course is an improvement on what I used to do in Liquid - though I guess I could have used the same approach in that NLE also.

      Many thanks, again.

      However, I usually put a NB Art Blend transition between each clip. Assuming that NB get around to making these work in 6.5 before the client reaches their first wedding anniversary, I assume that applying your suggested workflow I should add the transition before creating the sub-sequence at half speed ie 6frames so that a 50% slo-mo will result in a 12 frame transition (though I fear what that will actually look like).

      Alternatively presumably I could locate the junction between the original clips in the slo-moed sub-sequence, cut them and insert realtime transitions?

        how many clips do you usually slomo in a row

        if only 20 or less, Alt+E is pretty quick

        a request was made for slomo to become a filter, that way it can be dragged to many clips in one hit

        yes, you can cut up a sequence and add transitions, or you can add them first prior to setting as sequence, it will look fine

          20 or so would be typical, but unless my fingers are getting weary, treating each clip individually feels like hard work and the sub-sequence route you proposed feels preferable.

          I can sympathise with the request for slo-mo to be a filter but only if the expanded clips formed a longer total sequence afterwards. In Liquid at least, a group of clips treated with its slo-mo filter would expand over each other defeating the objective.
