making a clip slower

mkkvideo Posts: 10 Just Starting Out

Hi, i have a video footage of moving clouds with a length of 8 seconds. But i need it to be around 20 seconds long. So when i try to slow it down with rightclick and time set from 1 to 0.5 in editor timeline it is stretched to a length of 16 seconds. but when i make a composit shot, the clip in timeline is 16 seconds long but the clip is only visible 8 seconds and is not slowed down. how can i slow down the clip? time effect dont work. can you please help me. and sorry for my poor english.

    @mkkvideo You might have better luck using the Rate Stretch tool (marked by the Red arrow) then clicking and dragging the end of your clip (at the Green arrow) from 8 secs to 20 secs. A box will pop up letting you see the times a little better. I hope this helps you along.
