In this video tutorial I show how to Speed Up or Slow Down Video using Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.

I also show you how to "glue" together many pieces of video to create a single video that you can then slow down or speed up as one group.

Sometimes you need to Speed Up video way past 400%. So I show you my method for achieving that.

Update August 2013

I now have a newer tutorial which shows more methods for slowing down video with Sony Vegas Pro and Movie Studio. This new tutorial is great for anyone who has a camera that can shoot in much higher frame rates like the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition.

    Hi Derek,

    I did what you said - or at least I think I did - but the colors just got even stronger at every time I did that method. I was about to speed up a sunrise and the quality got very poor.

    What could be the problem, please?

      Are you talking about what your video looks like after it has been rendered ?

    Is there a way to have gradual changes in playback speed?
    Just like how you can program in volume changes manually.
    Is there any way to do that in Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13?

      That feature is only available in Vegas Pro, through the use of the [b]Velocity Envelope[/b] tool. It is not available in any of the Movie Studio versions.

    I have a video clip recorded at 30 fps. When I try to make it faster by holding control and dragging left, the end product is very choppy. How can I make it smooth?

    May be great video but the view I see is blurred so I can't really see what menu item you are clicking on.
    I've been viewing some other vids and they seem to be clearer than this so I don't believe its my computer nor browser.
    IS this supposed to be watched in a certain definition setting?

    Really sorry but I really like your videos!

      Hi Dave
      I can't control what your YouTube video player does. All my videos are recorded in 1080p HD.
      You must manually change the YouTube player to 1080p HD before you start viewing the video.
      As soon as you press play and after the ad plays (if one appears), press Pause and then press the Cog Icon so you can set it to 1080p manually.
      If you press the Fullscreen icon, the YT Video Player is meant to Automatically change the playback quality to 1080p. However, most people find that the player has a mind of it's own and quite often will stay stuck on 360p unless you change it yourself.
      Regards
      Derek p.s.
      Remember to regularly delete/clear out your web browsers internet history - especially the cookies. Over time garbage can build up inside the web browser which makes sites like YouTube do strange things.

And when I import this archives to DVD Architect, then I double click to send to the time-line (in DVD Architect), it only move to the timeline the video OR audio, never both. Please help.

      Hi Fernando

      I have received a lot of questions over the last week, so it is taking me more time than usual to answer questions.

      I will make a new video tutorial to answer your question, because I get asked this quite a lot. I will let you know when it is uploaded to the website. Should be in next 24 hours.

      Derek.

        Hi again Fernando

        Sorry once again for the lengthy delay in getting some good information back to you.

        I have finally made a new video tutorial on YouTube, which teaches how to make a video for BluRay, without having to use the "Make Movie" function.

        Here is the link to video:
        [url]http://youtu.be/XGYcZkLLL-I[/url]

        I will upload an article on the website to go with the video tutorial, in the next few days. Currently I am replying to a large backlog of messages.

        Please don't hesitate to ask further questions if you need more help.

        Regards
        Derek
