  • Time Remap: how to setup?

    Edius has a Time Remap feature and I see it discussed many times in this forum.

    Anyone knows how to use it?

    Basically, I try to speed up and then slowmo a clip till to a frame to stay blocked on monitor. Examples are the many commercial sports we watch on TV.

    How Time Remap works?

    Visit the EDIUS Online training site: http://ediustraining.grassvalley.com/index.php

    If you click on "1. Highlights of EDIUS v4" on the list of training videos on the left, 6 options will be presented as a drop down. The last one is a basic explanation of the Time Re-Mapping function.

      At least in the current implementation of Time Remap...
      1. The amount of time the clip remains in the timeline remains constant.
      2. The journey in time is from the beginning of the clip, to the end of the clip, in the duration of the clip. This means that if you slow part of the clip down, another part of the clip must be sped up, so the entire clip plays back in the same amount of time as the non-time-stretched version.
        Imagine a piece of rubber and attach one end to a fixed object, and the other end to another fixed object. You can grab a part of the rubber band and stretch it toward one end, this makes the part you grab and the end you move it toward thicker and less tense. Meanwhile, the other part of the rubber band gets thinner and more tense. The ends of the rubber band stay in the same place, no matter what.
      3. In Time Remap you define "waypoints" like taking a road trip.
        The clip appears on the top, and the timeline time appears on the bottom.
        When you add keyframes, you define a point in time on the clip, and the corresponding timeline time you want that frame to appear at.
        Thus, if you have a 10-second clip, and you put a keyframe at the 2-second mark on the clip, and the 5-second mark on the timeline, this means the first 2 seconds the clip play back in 4 seconds of timeline time.
        This results in the first 2 seconds of the clip playing back at 50% speed to it fills 4 seconds of clock time with 2 seconds worth of footage.
        Now the remaining 8 seconds of the clip is automatically adjusted to play back within the remaining 6 seconds of timeline time, resulting in that part of the clip playing back at 133% speed.

      It's difficult to explain... You just need to play with it a bit and it'll make sense. It might not do exactly what you want, but once it makes sense, you can overlap copies of the same clip and cut them to get the effect you desire.

                  Really? It worked for me... Bah!

                  OK, go to the online training site: http://ediustraining.thomsongrassvalley.com/

                  Once there, look in the upper right corner of the site for the "How To Documents" drop down menu. Click on it, and scroll through the list until you find the one labeled "How To - Working with Time Remap in EDIUS." It is 5th from the top. You can download a PDF copy.

                      Ok! Now I understand how TR works! Have seen all the tutorials there but had not clicked on the various informative documents. The documents did not load correctly in Firefox but did in IE. Thank you for the link.
