Using Retime Controls to Create Speed Ramps, Freeze Frames, and more

The retime controls in DaVinci Resolve let you easily change the speed of a clip.

But that’s not all, you can change the speed within a clip to create speed ramps. So you can go from slow motion to fast and back. Or slow, fast, and faster.

It’s a very flexible and useful feature that lets you do quite a lot!

There’s presets in there too that can do rewind effects, freeze frame, and more.
