Hi - I am new to the forum and a basic user of Premiere Pro CS5. I am working on a project shot at 24 fps, and would like to do slow and fast motion.
From what i understand there are 2-3 different ways to do this in Premiere - choosing speed/duration of the clip from timeline, or choosing time remapping form effects panel ot using rate stretch tool. Wondering how do these compare and which is better - any pointers for this will be great help. Also is slow motion and fast motion better done in After Effects than Premiere. Or any recommended plugins that would work on cs5 and cs5.5. Thanks.
The main difference between using time-remapping and just using time-stretching is that time-remapping allows you to change the speed quite flexibly at different times in the same clip, whereas stretching just changes the rate for the whole clip.
See this page:

After Effects has far more control, especially with regard to how new image information is created between the original frames when you change speed and require frame interpolation (frame blending). Pixel Motion and Timewarp use a very advanced motion vector method (based on the Foundry's Kronos software) for doing this.
Thanks Todd - this is very helpful.
