iMovie '09: Speed Clips up to 2,000%

iMovie '09 brings back the capability to speed up or slow down clips, which went missing in iMovie '08. Select a clip and bring up the Clip Inspector by double-clicking the clip, clicking the Inspector button on the toolbar, or pressing the I key. Just as with its last appearance in iMovie HD 6, you can move a slider to make the video play back slower or faster (indicated by a turtle or hare icon).

You can also enter a value into the text field to the right of the slider, and this is where things get interesting. You're not limited to the tick mark values on the slider, so you can set the speed to be 118% of normal if you want. The field below that tells you the clip's changed duration.

But you can also exceed the boundaries of the speed slider. Enter any number between 5% and 2000%, then click Done.

The most awesome thing about this? I'm evidently already signed up!

Me too! I for one believe that PRSM-based signin (where you don't have to do anything at all) is the wave of the future.

The search feature is amazing. I wanted to find a high-school classmate who didn't have a Facebook account. Not only did I find him, but I obtained his phone records, emails, and credit card purchases!

Who knew that POTUS on Game Center really is President Obama! And the dude's pretty good at Plants vs Zombies 2!
