About playback and slow motion... [ANSWER]

Okay 2 questions really:
1) Other than dragging the "thing" across the time line for frame by frame play back is there a way within studio of changing the playback speed so I can check my effects look right. I know they will ultimately be viewed full speed but sometimes at full speed although you can see it's not quite right you can't always identify why (or is it just me?).
And the biggie(?)
2) Perhaps VisionLab Studio isn't the place to do it (if so please advise) but what I'd like to achieve is a slow motion scene. I assume this could be "easily" simulated by repeating frames (double frames for half speed etc) can this be done? Ideally I'd like to speed it up & slow it down so it gradually slows down to slow motion then maybe more rapidly speeds up to full speed.
Whilst on it such a function I guess could remove frames to speed things up.
If not VisionLab - any idea on how I can achieve this?

1. Check out the playback tutorial here:http://fxhome.com/support/vidtutes/?t=6&f=%2Bcat%3A1&cat=1
That should fill you in on how to optimise your playback, and how the preview rendering system works.
2. You can change the overall speed of a media clip by right clicking it on the timeline. However, you can't do a gradual change of speed without lots of fiddling. Hopefully someone else can help you out here.

The effect you are describing in 2 is called Time Remapping. After Effects is the only program I know of off the top of my head which does it, though I am sure there are others.

Hmm, beyond my budget at the moment looks like a work around is on its way..... Cheers anyway!

Magic Bullet has pretty amazing slow-mo generation software (AE plugin I think). It's quite pricy though and takes forever to generate the extra frames, from what I hear.
