Thanks to heathenx for pointing out that I could achieve slow motion on a single clip by adding a speed generator effect to it, setting an IPO curve for the speed gen effect and making sure the ‘use ipo as velocity’ button was enabled. It all sounds so logical to me now, but I was so befuddled and frustrated last night trying to achieve it. Isn’t that always the way? Things look impossible, and then you find out they’re much easier than you thought. That concept seems to pervade my life. :)
Anyway, I’ve replaced the original video with this one, slow-mo effect included. Thanks heathenx, you’re a smart guy.. despite what everyone says.
