I tried changing clip speed from 100% to 80% and got this error message. The two possible reasons given don't apply (clip may be too close to another or speed set to a very similar value). I don't have attached audio.
I have successfully changed clip speed in this project a few times already so I wondered what else might be happening - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for your question Marion. That sounds unusual. Have you tried changing the clip speed to a different value than 80%? See if you can set it to any value. Once you are able to add it, you can click on the little drawer arrow on the bottom of the clip to open the effect drawer. In there, you will see a green clip speed bar across the clip. If you click on the end of the green clip speed bar, you can drag it to change the clip speed amount. Maybe that will allow you to drag it to 80%? Other than that, I wonder if the clip you are trying to add it to isn't the one selected on the timeline?

If this doesn't help, I suggest submitting a support ticket herehttp://techsmith.custhelp.com/app/ans..., so one of our technical support team members can trouble shoot the issue with you.

I hope this helps!

Hey Marion,

Thanks for the upload. I see your issue. When the clip you are trying to slow down is snug on both sides with another clip, it doesn't have room to expand. When we slow down a clip, we need room for that increase in time, on the timeline. I took a quick screenshot to show you what I mean: http://screencast.com/t/eodIVB1HjAzL

Hope this helps!

Thanks Logan
I've shifted the track contents to the right and find that I can now reduce the clip speed. Didn't this use to happen automatically in v7? Or am I imagining things?

Thanks
Regards
Marion
