View Full Version : animating footage speed

10 October 2002, 08:36 PM
A while ago I asked on this board. how to animate the speed or footage to get the sweeping fast motion with nice smoth slowing effects like the bullets time in matrix.

I was told it wasn't possible in combustion 2, but it is! and so very eassy too.

it's that speed cariable under transform. click it to un ghost and animate a nice curve as you please! it's fantastic. Thought all should know about it

I'd like to differ and say that it's not possible.

The speed channel inside C* refers to the speed of an object on a motion path from point A to point B and not the actuall speed of a clip.

You can make a clip faster or slower in C* under the footage controls > output and click on frame blending so that it creates "inbetween" frames, but it's not keyframable.

To speed up a clip you need a plugin called Twixtor or something like that.

If you have achieved this i'd really like to see how and i think you should let the ppl at Discreet know too as i'm sure they would be very interested.
