Sorry for noob question or a possible duplicate.

We got a .mov inside a AE project. What we are trying to do is change the tempo of this so duration isn't 4 sec for example, but instead cause our audio is 6 seconds we would like it to simply scale in time so it becomes 6 seconds.

Is there a way to do it? enter image description here

Method 1

The Last column on the right — in your pic it says растягиваться but in the English version of AE it's called Stretch — that's the one you need to modify Click on the number that says 100%.

Alternatively, select the layer and from the Layer menu choose Time>Time Stretch… (I'm not sure what it is in Russian).

Then you'll get a dialog that lets you choose the duration you want, or a stretch factor if you want to choose the playback speed.

Method 2:

Apply Time Remapping to the layer (choose Layer from the menu or Right-Click the layer and then choose Time>Enable Time Remapping or hit cmd/ctrlalt/optionT).

This will create a keyframe at the start and end of the layer.

Drag the last keyframe to the point where you want the layer to end.

Method 3

Park the playhead at the time you want the layer to end.

With the layer selected hit ctrl/commandalt/option,, which will stretch the out point to the current time.

You can do the same with the in point using ctrl/commandshift,.

  • It is called "stretch" in the english version. I checked. If you ever edit this post, you can remove that question mark. I just don't want to edit it to make a single-character change. Feb 18, 2015 at 13:54
  • The question mark was because the sentence starts with "See the last column…" I've rewritten it, thanks.
