The Speed effect is slowing my video down,when I put it at .50, but also cutting off half of the clip. Is there anything I can do to slow down the whole clip, not just half, which would double the length of the clip?
This is because the speed effect applies to the layer itself - it's not the same as a rate stretch tool in something like Premiere. (incidentally, I'd love to see a proper rate stretch tool added in the future)To get around this problem, first embed the video into a new composite shot, and set the new comp to be twice the length of the video.Then embed that composite shot and apply the speed effect to that. This means you can change it to speed 0.5 and see the whole thing.
When I try to do a slow motion effect with hitfilm using the speed-effect, it cuts off the frame at the end of the clip and slow down the rest. Is there anyway NOT to cut off the frames at the end? for example, if there is a shot of a person running and then suddenly he jumps off a rail and starts running again. I want to slow down only the scene of his jump and then return the speed to normal without making a cut in the shot, would it be possible? Because with the frame-cutting done by hitfilm, it is not possible in a continuous shot.
You could get around this by using extra frames in the section you slow down and then cut any extras when you do the edit.
