If the clip contains audio, playing the clip more slowly lowers the pitch of the audio, and playing the clip faster raises the pitch. To preserve the original pitch of the audio, the Maintain Audio Pitch check box in the Speed panel is enabled by default. If you don't want to preserve the pitch, disable this check box.
If you are unsure of the clip speed that you want, you can manually edit the clip duration to set a specific duration for your clip and let Premiere Rush determine the right speed changes to make for you - based on that duration. To edit the clip duration, click the minutes, seconds, or frames values and type in your changes.
Instagram video clips need to be of a specific time duration. You can quickly set the clip duration using Premiere Rush.
New to video editing? Here are a few guidelines to help you understand when to speed up or slow down your video.
Often videos benefit from a faster pace in scenarios where you want to:
- Create a short video that might otherwise take a long time to watch, or is a good length for social media.
- Speed up slower moments in a video, but you don't necessarily want to edit it out.
Examples: Arts and crafts videos, vlogs, make up tutorials
Slowing down a video is a great idea if you’re looking to:
- Create a mood that’s thoughtful or dreamy.
- Emphasize details in fast-moving content that may otherwise be too quick for viewers to appreciate.
Examples: Sports videos
