In the timeline, when I right click on a video layer the only option given is to control the motion of the clip, not its speed. How do i change the speed of a video clip inside the timeline?
Is it a video clip, a normal layer or a smart object? To check, go to the layers panel and look at the small symbol in the icon:
Right clicking a video clip in the timeline gives these options
Right clicking a normal layer or smart object in the timeline gives these. That is how you can pan and zoom a normal video layer by putting it into a smart object.
Thanks Dave, this explains things. my video must have been converted to a smart object along the way. To access the original video clip and adjust speed I just needed to double clock the smart object icon which opens a new file window with the video clip loaded. Thanks!
