I’m using Handbrake & have filmed throwing a pot. I want to make the time it takes shorter. Can I do this on Handbrake?

    Depends on what exactly you mean. If you want to play back the footage at a higher framerate, then upping the framerate in the export settings should do the trick. – Florian Claaßen Jun 8 '20 at 11:01
  • Thank you, Florian. I want the video to take up less time for the viewer, so I guess each frame must show up in a shorter aunt of time. I do't know where the 'export settings' are. I'm a complete novice! – Carole Spackman Jun 9 '20 at 22:01

    In that case, I would not recommend using handbrake. There's a free trial version of Premiere, which is widely known and used, and frankly - your task is easier to comprehend compared to handbrake. If you got your video in the timeline, simply right-click and select "speed and duration". When you changed your speed, you can export with ctrl+m and choose h264 mp4 with a bitrate of 4-5 for an average sized, average quality video. – Florian Claaßen Jun 10 '20 at 9:08
  • Thank you so much, Florian. I'll have a go. – Carole Spackman Jun 11 '20 at 10:34
