i was just wondering can you do time re-mapping so you can make a clip go slow to fast in fxhome? if so could someone tell me but don't worry if there isnt....

I don't think you are able to keyframe the speed of a clip in the current versions of the Lab products unfortunantly, but it would indeed prove for some very interesting effects (such as the really cool shot from "300").

Nope, no time remapping in any of the Lab products. At the current ime, you are going to need After Effects, or Final Cut, or some such program to handle that sort of thng.

If I understand correctly, time re-mapping is the process of altering a clips speed numerous times throughout the clip, by way of keyframing each change in speed, rather then setting a continous pace that remains constant through a videos duration. If this is what you are referring to, then no, "time re-mapping", as such, is not currently a feature of the Lab products.
Though that is not to say that this can not be accomplished using VisionLab. Although VisionLab does not allow the keyframing of a videos speed, it does have the essential tools required to achieve the same result. Specifically, by using the "Slice" tool, combined with the "Set speed" feature.
To do this, simply slice the video at the desired points (before and after you would like the changes in speed to occur), then right click the track that you would like to alter, and select "Set speed...". For a more gradual change in tempo, slice the video multiple times, progressively increasing the change in speed of each track.
Without going into any great detail, that is one method of how this could be accomplished using VisionLab. If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to elaborate. I would also suggest watching the video tutorials provided in the support section of this site, if you run into any complications.

That technique is possible as a rough-and-dirty workaround, but its not quite the same as time remapping, which allows to to ramp the speed from one point to another, rather than changing in steps.
