Speeding up clips in Vegas?

Postby CrackTheSky » Fri Nov 17, 2006 1:57 pm

Whenever I insert a velocity envelope on a clip and try to adjust the speed upward, that clip will not render. Instead I just get a black screen for that portion of my video. This doesn't happen when I slow clips down; only when I speed them up.

Any ideas on how to get around this?

I'm using Lagarith-encoded clips, so I know it's not a codec problem. Although I don't think I've tried this effect with HuffYUV...so maybe it IS a codec problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated ^_^

I used to do that but it's annoying. Hold Ctrl and click on the edge of the clip on the timeline. The arrow should change icon. You can slow down or speed up the clip like this. I hope this helps

I edit with Lagarith-encoded clips all the time, and I've never had a problem speeding up my clips. So I don't think it's a codec problem...Hm. I'm sorry I'm not more help. >.<

I don't even do that, I just change the playback rate rather than the velocity o.0 but I'm a noob so don't really take my word for it. That's just what the guide said to do.

...How do you change the playback rate?

um what you do is you right click on the clip you want to speed up or slow down.

once you right click on it, a menu should pop up and you click on properties. then near the bottom is the playback rate. it should be a 1.000 or normal speed if you haven't done anything to it.

it you want it to speed up, you have to move the number up. like to 1.100 and do that until you find the right speed. for slowing down you go the other way 0.900 and so on.

the guide has pictures though XD
