Problem after clip speed effect application

  • Updated 2 months ago
I wanted to edit my project faster and because there is not a way to speed up the preview I applied a clip speed effect on my entire track.

After finishing the editing operations (only cutting mute parts and something like that) I tried to delete the clip speed effect on the entire track, but in some way, I don't know why, some parts of the track were damaged: the video track was flickering and showed different images in the preview.

I'm not able to restore a normal speed without damaging my video track.

I also tried to export the track, because I thought it was only a preview problem, but it was the same also in the exported video.

Hope the problem is clear.
How can I solve that?

Unless you SAVED the project before applying clip-speed, it may be gone.  Others may offer hope, but as a minimum you should also let us know what version of Windows and Camtasia you're using. Good luck.

In the end I exported all the track with 1.7 speed, then I slowed it down to 0.59 in another project to make it normal. It worked, but I don't understand why it was corrupted

Sounds like you're experimenting which is always a great, hands-on way to learn.

regarding "I don't understand why it was corrupted" ...

curious myself

what did your project look like? could you post a screenshot showing the project on timeline at ctl-shift-7 ma zoom out

clip speed cannot be applied to grouped items; clip speed will not work as one would expect on non-contiguous items on a track; to achieve predictable outcomes, fill gaps with a throwaway object before applying the speed adjustment factor
