Slowing down play back..

I've created an animation, but it's playing back faster than I'd like (moving objects are moving too fast).  What's the best way to edit the speed of a AL video clip.  I like the "MontageCenter" where you can save your video as a MCP file, but I still can't seem to slow down my playback.  Windows Media Player allows you to slow down your video, but not save it (as far as I know).

Maybe I'm attacking this the wrong way.. Would more frames create a slower playback?

Hi,

if you want to slow down playback then reduce the frame rate/second under Options/Movie.
Record more total frames if the movie is too jerky.
It's a balance between playback speed and playback smoothness.

I hope this helps.

If you already have a video that you don't want to redo, you can try duplicating every frame. This will slow it down by 1/2. Sometimes you can get away with 8 fps for internet video. This is pretty jerky, but gives you the idea of motion. By decreasing frame size you can create a smoother video at a smaller file size. A short AVI can easily be .5 gig.
