THIS IS IN NO WAY MENT TO BE USED OVER THEFLETCH13'S TUTORIAL ON TIME REMAPPING. THIS WAS POSTED INCASE SOMEONE DOESNT UNDERSTAND AND WORKS BETTER BY LOOKING AT PICTURES. THEFLETCH13'S TUTORIAL CAN BE VIEWED HERE: http://skateboard-city.com/messagebo...ad.php?t=59531
I took this off my website, which I wrote the tutorial for: FilteredFilms.com. For more After Effects tutorials, check it out.
First off, this is quite a long tutorial, but alot of it is just lovely images for your eyes to feast on. Enjoy.
Step 1: Open Adobe After Effects, and make a new composition by clicking Composition<New Composition or hitting CTRL + N on your keyboard (Windows).
Step 2: Import the video clip you would like to add time remapping to.
Step 3: Now you want to drag the file you just imported onto the new composition, because without doing that, you'll have nothing to edit. So, go to the imported files and drag it right onto the composition.

Step 4: Now, you'll want to drag the work area end to the end of your clip, or you'll end up getting blank black video at the end of your video clip when you render it.
Step 5: Now you'll most likely want to enable time remapping, because, if you don't, whats the point of this tutorial?
Step 6: Now you'll need to add keyframes to the time remapping, so, scrub to where you want to start slowing down the video, and add a keyframe by clicking the little box all the way in the left column of the timeline, next to Time Remapping effect.

Step 7: Now that you have your keyframes there and doing absolutely nothing, you'll need to give them a job, and that job is to start remapping the time, obviously. So, click the keyframe where the remapping stops, and the keyframe at the very end of the video clip (SHIFT + click to select both) and drag them to the right until you get a nice dip in the time remapping line. It should have dipped between the two time remapping keyframes you added.
Step 8: You'll want to round off the dip to make it a nice, smooth transition, so click on the first time remapping keyframe and handles on the keyframe line should appear. Drag them up to make them rounded, you may have to mess around with it for a little while to get the hang of it.

Now, finally, your done with the editing, so all you need to do is export it... WHOA, not to fast there buddy, you need to enable audio on it or there will be none of that cooool sound your looking for. So, here's how to render.
Step 9: Click Composition<Add To Render Queue and it should bring up a rendering settings window.
