I generally do my effects in the Effects Control Panel rather than the timeline. Just seems easier to me.
Okay. How? When I go there and twirl down the Time Remapping arrow it shows 100% but there's no way to change it. Below it are a 2.0 and a -1.0 that can be changed, but it isn't clear what they do.
It's probably obvious to everyone but me.
EDIT: Okay, got it. Click the stopwatch to create a keyframe, pull down on the rubber band.
I guess I was hoping to find a quicker way to just pull down the rubber band on the clip itself in the timeline.
Thanks for the tip.

Simply add a keyframe and then you can slide the "speed line" up and down all you want.
EDIT: Apparently I was just a bit late with that advice. :)
I guess I'm not alone in finding the Time Remapping settings utterly incomprehensible. Lucky for me I don't like its quality either, so 0 for 2 means I never use it :)
Hey Dan. Take a look at the ADOBE Tutorials on time remapping. I cant understand how it would be incomprensible (to you in particular).
Jeff is correct. Add a key frame at the point(s) you want a change and drag the speed line up/down.
To the OP. No way to apply this to multiple clips.
Why do you need to do this to "hundreds of clips" anyway?
What is intuitive to some is incomprehensible to others. Fortunately we are all different, but watching how something is done is often the best way to learn.

-- Why do you need to do this to "hundreds of clips" anyway?
For the sports videos we do, the last segment is always a series of slo-mo dissolves of the players. The parents love it. The project I'm doing now also has a looking-back retrospective of the kids over the years. So about eight minutes total, probably about 200 clips in all. It's a bit of a chore to drag each to the timeline, change the speeds individually, and then trim them and place them and add all the transitions, but hey, it's the best way I know.
Changing the speed in the Effects Control window seems more complicated -- it's certainly more clicks.
You'll get my answer to the pending questions at the latest by tomorrow.
For the question here, maybe I overlooked something, but did you consider nesting sequences and applying time remapping to the nested sequences? Create a new sequence LAST, put in all the clips you want to time remap, edit as usual, create a new sequence LAST1, put the sequence LAST on the timeline and remap in one single effect. You don't need keyframes to time remap, just drag down or up the line in the effect control window.
That's actually a really good idea. I could then cut apart the nested remapped clip and treat as individual clips to be trimmed to time to the music.
Very cool. Thanks.
