Hi, my name is Zach, and today I'm going to show you how to speed up a clip in Final Cut Pro. First, you're going to select your clip and then you're going to hit command J. This is going to pop up the change speed menu. And I just want to speed up my clip by about 50 percent. So, I'm going to type 150 and hit okay. Now, you will need to render your clip, so we're going to do that real quick. For those of you who don't know how to render a clip, you can render a selected clip by hitting command R or all of your clips by hitting option R. And now, when we play the clip, it's going to play in fast motion. My name is Zach and I just explained how to speed up a clip in Final Cut Pro.
