What you'll need
Martin found a video clip she wanted to use. She imported the clip, named the project, and selected Create.
To prep the project, Martin created five clips from the video source. She moved the blue playhead to the first spot on the timeline, then clicked the Split icon. Martin repeated this process to create three long clips and two short ones – 0:00-0:04.12, 0:04.12-0:05, 0:09.12- 0:10, 0:10-END. Then, she clicked the Speed icon to prep for the speed ramp step.
Martin alternated speeds by setting the Range Speed to 1000% for the first, third, and fifth clips and 70% for the second and fourth clips. Then she added speed ramps to ease the transition between clips.
For each clip, she checked the Ramp checkbox and set the Amount to .2 seconds. For the first clip, she slid the range start point to the left edge of the clip and the end point to taper to 0. For the last clip, she set the start point to taper up from 0 and dragged the end point all the way to the end of the clip.
After she previewed the effect within Rush, Martin clicked Share from the top toolbar and saved the updated video to her computer. When she was ready to share her work, she had the option to export it to a variety of social media channels.
