This is a very usefull feature of Vegas. If you group a sequence of events then use the Control key when you stretch the clips (look for the wavy underline) then you can stretch or compress. There is a limit though ... 3 times I think without looking.

The limit is 4, actually. If that isn't enough then one can render out the slowed clip to a new file, replace it with this new file, and stretch again.

If there's no audio involved then a velocity envelope can also be applied to allowe an additional 3x speed change for a total of 12x. However, velocity envelopes don't affect audio so this may or may not be useful.

If its a single clip then obviously there's no need to group before changing the speed.

Wow, thanks guys. I would have never found that. The help file in Vegas is of little help I'm finding ....

Before you write off the Vegas Help files ....

If you put in the word "stretch" you will get a list of results, and third from the top is "Adjusting an Event's Length". How much more helpful can they get?
