rate stretch tool

A software function in video editing software that increases or decreases the time of a video clip. It is used when a clip in the middle is too short or too long to fit precisely into a timeline where the in and out points must remain the same. The frame rate is actually speeded up or slowed down. See fps.


(Frames Per Second) The measurement of the speed of motion sequences such as movies, TV and animation. Although motion displayed electronically seems continuous, it is actually a rapid sequence of static images called "frames." The simulation of movement requires 15 fps. Movies are shot at 24 fps, while video is captured at 24, 30 and 60 fps. See CIF, DTV, rate stretch tool and deinterlace.
