Smooth the transitions.
The Ramp feature adjusts the acceleration or deceleration of your video speed and can make the shift look more natural. Adjust the Ramp duration in your clip to gradually change the pace of your video to avoid jarring your viewer with a sudden change in speed.
Preserve your audio.
When altering your video playback speed, the pitch of your audio track changes. With a sped-up video, the pitch rises, while a slowed-down video lowers the pitch. To help combat this, the Maintain Audio Pitch feature is automatically enabled in the Speed panel in Premiere Rush. While your audio is always sped up or slowed down to stay in sync with the video, this feature ensures your sound isn’t too warped when the pace is changed. If the audio isn’t necessary for the clip, consider muting it and adding narration or music instead.
