Time Remapping in Adobe Premiere Pro

Time Remapping in Adobe Premiere Pro is much easier than any other software available. Here I'm showing you, how to remap a video sequence according to time in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, the latest version.  You can do this with the version available in your system.

Before starting, I hope you've basic knowledge on what does this 'Time Remapping' actually mean! If not, I'll explain it for you, a bit. Time Remapping can otherwise said to be 'creating fast/slow motion'. The process we are doing is making the movement of frames faster or slower by changing the timing. That's why it is usually called Time Remapping.

Step 1
OK. Let's start by opening a new Adobe Premiere Pro project and creating new sequence.

New Project window
Step 2
Import the footage in which you want to remap time.

You'll able to see a yellow line horizontally passing through the middle of the sequence.

Step 5
Choose the part of the sequence in which you want to remap the time. Hold the Ctrl Key (you'll be able to see a '+' sign one the pointer) and click on both sides of the yellow line (on Mark In and Mark Out).

Step 5A
Now, if you move the pointer upwards as shown in the picture, fast motion will be created for the selected part.

That's all. When you're finished, save project and render the video in your desired output.
