    Time Warp Effect Causes Color Change (CS4)

    Toothpaste35

      I'm not even sure if I'm doing this correctly so somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

       

      I have a 1-minute clip that I've been working on. The first 30s I want to playback at normal speed. Between 30 and 36s I want the playback speed to gradually increase to about double the normal playback speed. At 36s I want it to stay at double speed for a few seconds and then gradually return to realtime playback. I don't want it to suddenly go from normal speed to double speed. From what I've read this is possible with the TimeWarp effect or enabling time re-mapping. Since I don't know how to do either I decided to look up some tuts on TimeWarp. I didn't find much and when I add the TimeWarp effect to my footage layer, all the color correction I did on it disappears.

       

      I guess I'm wondering two things:

      -How do I accomplish the speeding up and slowing down that I described above?

      -If I'm supposed to use Timewarp, why does it create issues with my color and how do I fix it?

       

      Thanks for any advice. I'm new to AE so I'm just starting to learn a lot of the technical stuff.

      (I use AE CS4)

          You pre-compose, meaning you use your comp as a layer in another comp and only then apply the effects.

          Simple keyframes on the time stretch parameter.
