TidBITS Staff at Macworld Expo NY -- As just about everyone knows by now, Macworld Expo will take place in New York City this week. Since we're far too virtual of an operation to have a booth, the best way to see us will be to come to one of our scheduled events. Several TidBITS staff members should be at the Netter's Dinner at 6 PM on Wednesday, 08-Jul-98. Then, at 10 AM on Thursday, 09-Jul-98, Adam will be signing copies of his Eudora Visual QuickStart Guide at the Peachpit Press booth (#1645). For those paying extra to attend the conferences, Adam will participate in the Building a Mac-centric Intranet panel at 11 AM on Wednesday, 08-Jul-98 and moderate the Innovations in Email panel at 10 AM on Friday, 10-Jul-98. See you there! [ACE]
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.
